Toyota Australia is seeing in the start of a six-month countdown to the first round of the Toyota 86 Racing Series by releasing a special edition version of Australia's best-selling sports car.

Known as the Toyota 86 Blackline Edition, the car features a subtle body kit, gloss-black 17-inch alloy wheels and distinctive red highlights in the sporty black interior.

The newest 86 derives its special edition name from the twin black stripes on the roof and bonnet, accentuated by the model's "white liquid" exterior paint colour.

Based on the high-line 86 GTS, Toyota is making just 450 of the 86 Blackline Edition cars available - 250 manuals priced* from $37,990* and 200 automatics priced* from $40,490*.

Feature items have been sourced from Toyota's acclaimed engineering and motor sport partner TRD including front spoiler, side skirts, three-piece rear spoiler, rear lower bumper and mudguard garnishes.

Inside, the new package sets the Toyota 86 Blackline Edition apart with ample splashes of red on the seats, steering wheel, gearshift knob, handbrake lever and door grips.

Release of the special edition 86 coincides with an announcement that the Toyota 86 Racing Series is due to hit local race tracks from May.

Each of next year's five rounds will offer a starting grid of up to 32 cars at selected V8 Supercars events, including Sandown in September and Bathurst in October.

The pro-am format will include up to five professional guest drivers who will also mentor the amateur drivers competing for a prize pool of at least $125,000.

Since its launch in 2012, the Toyota 86 has been Australia's best-selling sports car with more than 15,600 sold to local customers.

The 86 has attracted an enthusiastic following with its fun-to-drive rear-wheel drive dynamics powered by a 147kW, 205Nm 2.0-litre direct-injection four-cylinder engine and a choice of six-speed transmissions.

Other standard features on the Toyota 86 Blackline Edition include a 6.1-inch touch screen that displays satellite navigation with live traffic updates (where available), reversing camera image and audio interface.

Exterior fittings include auto-levelling HID headlamps, front foglamps, LED daytime running lamps and keyless smart entry.

Stepping inside over the scuff plates with stainless-steel inserts, owners are treated to dual-zone climate-control air-conditioning, keyless smart start, leather-accented front seats with Alcantara inserts and aluminium pedals.

Every Toyota 86 is equipped with seven airbags, reversing camera, cruise control, stability and traction control, anti-skid brakes and a multi-information display.

The Toyota 86 Blackline Edition cars are included in the capped-price servicing plan Toyota Service Advantage with up to four scheduled services at just $180 each (conditions apply).
