Can anyone help me locate a Blue GT86 to view?
I have decided to order a GT86 to replace my current Peugeot RCZ. I have decided on either white or blue, having now seen all the other colours in the flesh. However, before I order I would like to see the colour on the car. I have seen the white which looks really good but cannot seem to find a blue GT86 to view.
I am based in Sussex and called a few of the dealers in the south-east but no one has a blue car, or know of when they might get one. One very helpful dealer checked with his regional manager and came back with the news that there are currently only 2 blue GT86 in the country - one in Lincoln and one in Edinburgh.
Has anyone seen a blue GT86 at their local dealer or been told that a customer has purchased a blue locally? I would be prepared to travel a bit to see it if anyone can help!
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi, there is a Blue GT 86 in Toyota World Cardiff, I test drove it last week. It was an automatic and was not impressed (by the gearbox) love how it looks however. Hopefully I will test drive a manual this week.

I test drove a blue one at Benfield toyota in Wakefield here's some real life pics:



Personally it's not for me, blue is my least favourite colour.

Me too - it is a nice enough colour, but I think some of the other colours look better on the car.
Which dealer in Edinburgh has the blue model by the way?

Seems all the dealer demo's are lacking the badge but not heard of a customer saying they have no badge. The guy with the black 86 who got it last Friday has the badge on that.

As for colours, IMO I believe the sporty colours (Orange, White, Red, black) look better on the '86 compared to thecolours you normally see on executive style cars, e.g. Blue, Grey & Silver.

I test drove a blue manual at Listers, Stratford-on-Avon- not too far up the M40 from the Smoke.
Personally, I thought blue looked a bit dull, but it was a very seriously dull weather day.

Thanks for all the help guys, especially Mike_89 for the pics thats a great help! If anyone knows of one nearer to Sussex please let me know? Stratford on Avon seems to be nearest so far.

I think the blue looks great.....in bright sunlight. So probably not great given the summer we're having
I think on a dull day it doesn't show the lines of the car as well as other colours.

I like the blue, but then I have ordered one!!

I thought the blue reminded me of an LFA. I don't know why. The light makes a big difference. I was toying between the blue, the red and the grey.


I always go for grey and red so wanted something different.
