Let's Go Places: Satisfy your sweet tooth

Are you looking for the perfect Valentine's Day gift? Are you interested in learning about chocolate and how it's made? Maybe you just want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The Theo Chocolate Factory, located in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood, is the perfect place to explore, taste, and experience chocolate. This place is so much more than a candy shop because it offers factory tours, private classes, and delicious chocolate that is organically and ethically sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

At the factory and online, you'll find several unique flavors of chocolate bars, cookie bites, caramels, truffles, and more. If you want to visit the factory and buy the Valentine's Day collection from Theo for someone special, you'll need the right car to do the job. Look no further than the 2022 Toyota GR86.

If you've ever dreamed of getting behind the wheel of a track-ready car, the GR86 is the answer to your wish. This sleek, modern vehicle runs on a 2.4L 4-cylinder boxer engine that zooms from zero to 60 mph with ease. The GR in the title stands for Gazoo Racing, a special badge bestowed upon vehicles that have been "thoroughly pushed, honed, and perfected through extensive testing" and victories at many races around the world. You can tailor your driving experience by selecting from Normal, Sport, Snow, or Track modes. Track Mode was developed with race driver input and transforms the speedometer into what you might see in a race car rather than a traditional vehicle.

Efficient handling is probably a high priority for most drivers, but the GR86 takes it to the next level. Track-tuned suspension, limited-slip differential, and front fender air vents combine with a lightweight, low-to-the-ground design, allowing the driver to confidently adapt to twisty roads.

The interior of the GR86 is equally as impressive as the exterior. Turbine-style air vents, available aluminum sport pedals, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters complete the racecar look, while standard leather touchpoints optimize luxury.

Convenience is one touch away with the available 8-inch touchscreen display that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™. Available Remote Connect allows you to start the engine, lock and unlock the doors, and find your vehicle in a busy parking lot, although it will easily stand out if you simply know where to look.

Automatic transmission models are equipped with the GR86 Active Safety Suite, which includes features like a Pre-Collision Braking System, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Automatic High Beams. Upgrade to the GR86 Premium model to enjoy additional safety features like parking assist sonar and reverse automatic braking. Available Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert notifies you when another vehicle is approaching where you can't see it. LED lighting in the front and back illuminate your way on even the darkest, foggiest streets, and an available Adaptive Front-Lighting System uses lights on the front wheels to help you navigate corners at night.

Now, don't go signing up for a race just because you have the GR86. Still, if you're curious what the professionals can do with the car you're driving, check out the GR86 FasterClass series. Plus, every 2022 GR 86 comes with a complimentary one-year membership to the National Auto Sport Association (NASA). GR86 owners will enjoy a host of benefits, including one free High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) and discounted admission to NASA-sanctioned events.

So, what are you waiting for? Your next adventure awaits in the 2022 Toyota GR86, which starts at $27,700 MSRP.
