The AE86 generation o the Toyota Corolla Levin an Toyota Sprinter Trueno is a sma, lichtweight coupe introduced bi Toyota in 1983 as part o the fift generation Toyota Corolla line-up. For the purpose o brevity, the insider-chassis code o "AE86" is uised tae describe the whole range. In classic Toyota code, the "A" represents the ingine that came in the car (the 3A an 4A) an the E86 represents the 6t revision o the fift generation (E80 series) of the E model which is the Corolla. The visual difference atween the Levin an Trueno is that the Levin haes fixed-headlights an the latter haes retractable headlichts. The export model name Corolla covers baith variations. The AE86 (alang wi the lawer spec 1,452 cubic centimetres (1.452 L) AE85 an 1587 cc SR5 versions) wis rear wheel drive (unlike the front wheel drive CE80, EE80 an AE82 models), an is amang the last rear-drive caurs o its type, at a time when maist passenger caurs wur being switched tae front-drive. In 1987 there wis a limited variant o the AE86 called "Black Limited" till the unit runs oot an replaced also in 1987 bi the front wheel drive AE92 Corolla/Sprinter range. In Japan, the AE86 wis also kent as the Hachi-Roku (ハチロク?), Japanese for "aicht-sax".
