The Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-APEX AE86 Hatchback is the 3door variant of the Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86. It is also known by its chassis code "AE86" or simply as the Eight-Six (Hachi-Roku), both of which also apply to other AE86 models.

Information[edit | edit source]

The Toyota Sprinter line of cars are a variant of the Toyota Corolla line, and were aimed to be sportier than the Corolla line. The Sprinter Trueno was the Sprinter model of the fifth generation Corolla range, identified by their chassis code AE86. Sprinter Trueno AE86s were available as a 2door notchback coupe or as a 3door hatchback, something that also applies to the Corolla Levin AE86 as well as both Sprinter Trueno and Corolla Levin AE85s.

The name Trueno comes from the Spanish word for thunder. The Trueno featured retractable "pop up" headlights, unlike its Levin sibling which featured fixed headlights. The Eight-Six line came installed with a 4A-GE engine. The Trueno had a external facelift in 1985, with pre-facelift models being known as Zenki (early period) and post-facelift models being known as Kouki (latter period).

The 3Door Trueno was preferred for competition in Gymkhana events over its notchback sibling.

Notable Users[edit | edit source]

  • The impostor Takumi of Fake Project D drives a 1985 facelifted Kouki Trueno.
  • In the Live Action film, Itsuki Tachibana becomes the owner of a Trueno, after being inspired by Takumi. Although he does buy an actual AE86 Trueno (unlike his manga and anime counterpart, who buys an AE85 Levin), the car is significantly inferior to Takumi's.
  • In Final Stage, a Trueno is shown driving at a Gymkhana event while the competitive difference between the 3Door and 2Door models of the Trueno is explained by a group of fans watching Takumi's last race against Shinji.

The Trueno comes in three colours:

  • High-Tech Two Tone (White and Black)

  • High-Metal Two Tone (Silver and Black)
