The GT86 CS-R3 has moved closer to its rally debut later this year with Toyota Motorsport confirmed its final specification details. Instead of contesting the top tier of the World Rally Championship, the GT86 CS-R3 has been designed to compete in the R3 class.
The CS-R3 was launched in prototype form last August, since then it has undergone an extensive test program to fine-tune design and specification of the kit that will be delivered to private competitors and teams.
The first cars will be delivered to customers in May, slightly later than originally forecast. As a result of the delay, Toyota Motorsport extended its introductory discount, offering the CS-R3 kit, in tarmac or gravel specification, at €84,000 ($94,000) for orders placed before 24 April 2015. This represents a discount on the standard retail price.
Available in either tarmac or gravel specification, the GT86 CS-R3 kit includes a GT86 body shell, powertrain and all the mechanical components required to build the car. The car will be homologated to FIA R3 regulations at the beginning of July, after which all CS-R3 cars will be eligible for national and international rally competitions, up to and including the World Rally Championship.
