Toyota GT86 CS-R3 Rally Car Heading to WRC

Toyota’s newest rally car might not be competition ready, but we’ll be able to see it in action next month.

The Japanese automaker will debut its new GT86 CS-R3 rally car at the ninth round of the FIA World Rally Championship during the ADAC Rallye Deutschland from August 21-24. The GT86 CS-R3 will act as the race’s official pathfinder zero car with Isolde Holderied behind the wheel, a two-time women’s rally champion.

Holderied will help evaluate the CS-R3 rally car during the race and provide feedback to Toyota’s engineers to help make the final adjustments for the race car. The 2.0-liter Boxer-four engine has been enhanced to provide between 237 and 246 hp, which is a noticeable increase from the factory 200-hp figure. The powerplant is mated to a six-speed sequential transmission while the vehicle itself has gone on a diet and has been equipped with a limited-slip differential and roll cage.
