LEAD­ING car maker re­cently re­vealed sur­vey re­sults that showed a stag­ger­ing 8 out of 10 new car buy­ers pick the wrong colour for their per­son­al­ity.

Now I’m not sure about that but there is no doubt that some cars suit cer­tain colours more than oth­ers – and this week’s test mo­tor is a good ex­am­ple.

A few weeks ago we tried the Subaru BRZ and have now got our hands on its near iden­ti­cal sib­ling, Toy­ota’s GT 86 Pro.

But where the Subaru was a taste­ful metal­lic dark blue, as you can see, the Toy­ota was an ‘in your face’ bright red… the per­fect colour for a proper sports car.

Like the BRZ, the GT 86 has been re­vised for 2017 with a wider grille and new bumper de­sign, re­vised fog lights and new LED head­lamps. There’s also a new front split­ter and op­tional boot lid spoiler. The big­gest vis­ual change are LED rear lights, which give the car a dif­fer­ent look at night.

In­side things are a bit more lux­u­ri­ous with leather and Al­can­tara on the doors and dash and new stitch­ing, plus au­dio con­trols on the steer­ing wheel and an in­stru­ment bin­na­cle screen for car data and trip func­tions.
