Following a successful development period, during which it won its class in the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the TMG GT86 CS-V3 has been refined and packaged as an entry-level race car for easy maintenance, low running costs and great fun.

The exciting rear-wheel-drive, 200hp car has been developed specifically for the V3 class of the Nürburgring-based VLN series and homologation from the Deutsche Motor Sport Bund provides a licence to thrill in this and many other production-based championships.

A race-ready TMG GT86 CS-V3 is instantly competitive in a production-based class and represents impressive value for money at €38,500 excluding tax or €45,815 including German VAT.

The road-going GT86 has been widely praised after its official launch in 2012, with most road tests praising its sporty character, nimble handling and fun-to-drive quality. Using its vast motorsport experience, TMG has added even more excitement to the GT86 by creating an all-action race car.

TMG has stiffened the chassis and optimised weight distribution for motorsport while installing racing exhaust, suspension and brakes.

The result is an eye-catching and competitive race car built to TMG’s usual high standards which hits its primary target: to deliver a fun and easily-accessible racing experience.
