The new GT86 Primo, which has already opened for orders with first deliveries scheduled for January, costs £22,495. Available with a six-speed manual transmission only, the Primo keeps the standard car's 2.0-litre naturally aspirated boxer engine, which produces 197bhp.
Primo models get 17-inch alloy wheels, a limited-slip differential, aluminium pedals, and interior luxuries including air conditioning, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Toyota's touchscreen infotainment unit with Bluetooth connectivity.
The lower price means that at the moment the GT86 costs the same as an entry-level Subaru BRZ.
After an introductory offer on the GT86 Primo ends, the price of the model will be set at £22,995 - which still represents a price cut of £2115 over the standard car. Its lower price point means the Primo does without the keyless entry and go, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, LED DRLs and HID headlights of the regular GT86.
Additionally, a new GT86 Aero model - which features a new body kit, rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels, joins the range priced from £26,495.
A new special edition Giallo version, which is also only available with a manual transmission, features black leather heated seats, new exterior trim and new yellow paintwork. Only 86 examples will be coming to the UK, with each priced at £27,495.
