Toyota plans to display a total of 17 vehicles, including three concept cars from GAZOO Racing tuned by MN (GRMN) and G Sports (G’s), plus production vehicles, at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2011. The GRMN concept car to be displayed is the GRMN iQ Racing Concept, which is based on the limited-production iQ GRMN that sold out in one week in August 2009 and features a super charger and roll cage. Making up the G’s concept-car display will be the Prius G Sports Concept and the Vitz G Sports Concept, which are sports-conversion models based on the Prius and Vitz , respectively.
Toyota has seen the Tokyo Auto Salon as a place where peoples’ dreams about automobiles convene, and as such has actively exhibited there. At the 2011 show, TMC hopes again to increase the number of car enthusiasts by promoting the automotive seasoning and joy of automobiles developed through GAZOO3 Racing activities to a wide range of people. The Tokyo Auto Salon, the world’s largest customized car exhibition open to the general public, will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture from January 14 to 16.
