Toyota GR86 set to arrive

Toyota Gazoo Racing racing rather gave the game away last month, but we've known the GR86 would be coming to GT Sport for a while now.

The car will land with the update on 8 July, before its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend and before customers can jump into it on the real-world roads.
