Toyota is throwing a little extra habanero into the 86 coupe it inherited from Scion (the former FR-S) with the 860 special edition, named for the limited run of 860 in Supernova Orange and the same number in Halo White.

The limited version is noteworthy since Toyota inherited the Scion’s “mono-spec” trim, meaning the regular 2017 model has no factory choices except for transmission and paint color.

The 860 special edition gets optioned-up and still comes in at $30,040 for the stick including shipping and $30,760 for the automatic.

The rear-wheel-drive sporty model gets a black body stripe, rear spoiler and 17-inch alloy rims.

Inside, there are heated black leather seats with orange stitching — a styling theme that continues onto the steering wheel and center console. There’s also push-button start and dual-zone climate control.

The unique infotainment system features a 4.2-inch screen with a G-force meter and stopwatch. It also displays vital information such as horsepower, torque curves and engine temperature, Toyota said in a press release.
