The Toyota 86 may be old, having been introduced seven years ago for the 2012 model year, but Toyota has made sure to keep the sports car fresh with special editions. The Hakone Edition is the latest special edition 86, coming out for the 2020 model year and adds a few unique features and a gorgeous Hakone Green paint scheme. Based on the latest pricing documents from Toyota, the Hakone Edition definitely won't come cheap.

For 2020, the base 86 starts at $27,850, which includes destination. If you want a 86 Hakone Edition with a six-speed manual, it’ll cost $30,825. Adding the automatic transmission raises the price by $720. That makes the Hakone Edition more expensive than the Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring, almost as expensive as a Chevrolet Camaro 1LT with the 1LE package, more expensive than a Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost engine and Performance Package, and nearly the same price as a Nissan 370Z.

The Hakone Edition’s steep price brings a black lip spoiler and 17-inch bronze wheels that look incredible against the deep green paint. The interior of the sports car has been upgraded with tan and black Alcantara seats, and tan contrast stitching is on the emergency brake, steering wheel, and gear shift lever.

Unfortunately, the Hakone Edition is more of an appearance package, as the 86 still makes do with the same 205-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as other 86 trims. With pricing that’s on par with some heavy hitters that have more power and better overall performance, the Hakone Edition is a tough sell. Unless you really like the green paint.

Toyota and Subaru, the companies that worked together to develop the 86 and BRZ, have both come out with special editions of their respective sports cars before. There was the 86 TRD Special Edition, the 86 860 Special Edition, the BRZ Series.Gray, BRZ 50th Anniversary Special Edition, BRZ tS, BRZ Series.HyperBlue, and BRZ Series.Yellow. Clearly, there have been a lot of special editions and there are probably more to come.
