Toyota GR Yaris World Premiere
An all-new rally-inspired sports car, the Toyota GR Yaris, will make its international debut at next month’s Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan.
The GR Yaris incorporates advanced technologies, knowledge and experience learned from Toyota’s title-winning participation in the World Rally Championship (WRC) where it competes under the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) banner.
The GR Yaris will be the second pure sports-car model to be launched globally by TGR, following last year’s return of the legendary Toyota GR Supra.
Ahead of the world premiere, a prototype of the new sports car – camouflaged with the signature red-black-and-white TGR colours – will make the model’s first public dynamic appearance at the Fuji Speedway in Japan on Sunday as a highlight of the annual TGR Festival.
The GR Yaris is now in its final stage of development.
A prototype was recently pushed to its limits by Toyota’s global president Akio Toyoda, using his TGR Master Driver code name, Morizo.
