Build Your Own Toyota 86 To Pass The Time

And the best part is, it's completely free!

In order to stop the spread of the coronavirus, local governments have ordered stay-at-home orders, closing down businesses and stopping all but essential travel. Some people are able to work from home but even those individuals have found it difficult to pass the time after watching through the entire Netflix catalog. To help pass the time, Audi released a coloring book filled with some of the company's most iconic models. The best part was, Audi offered the book online for free.

Toyota also wants to give people something enjoyable to do during self-isolation, which is why the company's UK division has created a series of templates to cut-out and build miniature cars. The designs are based on the Toyota 86 (or GT86 as it is called in the UK) and are finished in a variety of retro liveries. And, they are completely free to download.

All six of these special 86 models were actually built in real life and shown at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed to commemorate Toyota's 50th anniversary in the UK. The liveries are based on the Yatabe Speed Trial Toyota 2000GT, Shelby Toyota 2000GT, Ove Andersson's Toyota Celica 1600GT, IMSA GTU Toyota Celica, Castrol Toyota Celica GT-Four, and Esso Ultron Tiger Toyota Supra. To build your own paper 86, Toyota says you will need only need paper, glue, and a pair of scissors.

The instructions say to download and print the high-resolution PDF, and then grab some scissors.

"Carefully cut out each of the three main sections (the roof and two sides) and each of the four tire tracks from the grey background, being especially careful not to cut off the little white tabs with dots on. Then fold and glue all of these white tabs, sticking them to the underside of the adjacent panel. This will pull the car into the three-dimensional shape that should resemble a Toyota GT86."

Those are all the instructions you need.

Toyota says the estimated build time is about an hour but we think you might be able to be quicker than that. Once you have built yours, be sure to share your creation with @ToyotaUK on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
