The spirit of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing looks to deliver top of the line technologies that have been put through countless hours of testing and have been benchmarked at events such as the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race. The GR series of cars fully utilizes the knowledge and knowhow gained, through TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s motorsports activities. Aside from design changes that feature a sportier looking exterior and interior, the GR series also has an improved driving performance. This is achieved by increasing body rigidity, a set of specially tuned suspension and other modifications. With this series, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is making race specification cars even more accessible to fans and customers!
Here’s a quick breakdown of the options that will be available:
GRMN is the top tier of the GR series. Vehicles are sold in limited quantities and feature tuned engines.
GR vehicles are mass-produced sports models that possess the essence of GRMN.
GR SPORT vehicles offer drivers the chance to enjoy casual sports car driving experience. Also available as MPV, the GR SPORT experience is not limited to just two and four-door models.
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s GR Garage (Japan market only at present) will also be launching in Q1/Q2 2018, replacing AREA 86 shops. All GR Garages will be staffed with dedicated GR consultants who specialize in advising customers so that they can better optimize their cars through GR modifications. Staying deeply rooted to the motorsports community, GR Garages aim at providing a place where car enthusiasts can gather for discussions about cars, parts, and share their love for cars and motorsports.
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is committed to providing motorsport enthusiasts of all ages with the latest technologies available, through months of rigorous testing in the toughest races and rallies across the world.
