The AE86 generation of the Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno is a small, lightweight coupe introduced by Toyota in 1983 as part of the fifth generation Toyota Corolla line-up. For the purpose of brevity, the insider-chassis code of the "AE86" is used to describe the whole range. In classic Toyota code, the "A" represents the engine that came with the car (the 3A and 4A) and the E86 represents the 6T revision of the fifth generation (E80 series) of the E model which is the Corolla. The visual difference between the Levin and a Trueno is that the Levin has fixed headlights and the Trueno has retractable headlights. The export model name Corolla covers both variations. The AE86 (along with the lower spec 1,452 cubic centimeters (1.452 L) AE85 an 1587cc SR5 versions) with rear wheel drive (unlike the front wheel drive CE80, EE80 an AE82 models), and is among the last rear wheel drive cars of it's type, at a time when most passenger cars were being switched to front-wheel drive. In 1987 there was a variant of the AE86 called the "Black Limited". The unit was replaced in 1987 by the front-wheel drive AE92 Corolla/Sprinter range. In Japan, the AE86 was known as the Hachi-Roku (ハチロク), Japanese for "eight-six".
