This extremely lightweight RWD sports car is a cult icon; perfectly balanced and highly moddable, the Trueno’s role in the popular Initial D anime and manga introduced a generation to Japanese motorsport culture. Toyota’s final rear-wheel Corolla before moving to a fully FWD system, the Trueno (aka the AE86) overperformed in every kind of racing there was, from rally to touring to, most of all, drifting. When the Trueno appeared in Keiichi Tsuchiya’s ”Pluspy” video, it cemented its legacy in the drifting world.
— Official description [1]

The 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex - abbreviated as Toyota Trueno - is a RWD sports car by Toyota featured in all main series titles except Forza Motorsport 7.

It is featured in Forza Horizon 4 since the Series 18 update as a seasonal reward.

Synopsis

The Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex is the sports variant of the fifth generation Toyota Corolla from 1983 to 1987. It was offered as a rear-driven model to the front-driven Corolla, and produced as a three-door liftback or two-door coupé.[2]

In Japan, the Trueno was exclusive to Toyota Auto Store dealerships. The Corolla Levin, a very similar model with fixed headlights instead of pop-up headlights, was sold in Toyota Corolla Store dealerships. Export markets received both models with the Corolla name.

Both the Sprinter Trueno and Corolla Levin are codenamed AE85 or AE86, with the latter referring to a more powerful 1.6L engine, whereas the AE85 refers to a weaker 1.5L engine. The Forza variant is an AE86 liftback model with the 1.6 liter 4A-GE engine. In previous model generations, the Trueno and Levin names were reserved for DOHC-equipped models, although the GT badge was now used to indicate a DOHC model.[3]

In 2012, a modern reinterpretation as the Toyota GT86 was introduced, which was jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru, who launched the Subaru BRZ.

Platform

The Trueno is based on a front-engine, rear-wheel drive chassis with a live-axle rear suspension derived from the fourth generation Toyota Corolla. It is notable for offering small body dimensions and a low weight of 2094 lb (950 kg), giving it great agility on corners.

Drivetrain

The '4A-GEU' engine is equipped with a double-overhead camshaft (DOHC) that uses 16 valves and T-VIS (Toyota-Variable Intake System), an early variable valve timing design to increase low-end torque. It produces 128 hp (95 kW) at 6600 rpm and 110 ft·lb (149 N·m) of torque.[4]
