TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Unveils GR GT3 Concept at Tokyo Auto Salon 2022
• GR GT3 Concept next step in making ever-better motorsports-bred cars
• GRMN Yaris for Japanese market only
• GR Sport Concept for all new bZ4X
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) is committed to further accelerating customer motorsports activities. By promoting “driver first” vehicle development and with a desire to provide attractive cars that customers participating in GT3 - the pinnacle of customer motorsports - would choose, TGR has unveiled the GR GT3 Concept.
As was the case with the GR Yaris, by commercialising motorsports cars rather than simply adapting production vehicles for use in motorsports, TGR intends to use feedback and technologies refined through participation in various motorsports activities to develop both GT3 and mass-production cars and further promote making ever-better motorsports-bred cars.
GRMN Yaris in limited edition – for Japan only
The development of the GRMN Yaris began with the desire of Morizo, president Toyoda to “deliver cars to customers that evolve quickly and can be tailored to individuals like in the field of motorsports”.
The new GRMN Yaris will only be built in 500 units and available in Japan only. The weight has been reduced by approximately 20kg, overall width has been increased by 10mm for aerodynamic improvement, and vehicle height has been reduced by 10mm for a lower centre of gravity. Cars will only be available via a reservation lottery for customers in Japan.
bZ4X GR Sport Concept
Based on the bZ4X dedicated battery EV, the bZ4X GR Sport Concept delivers an elevated level of environmental performance and driving pleasure. Larger tires, sports seats, and matte black exterior body panels are among the highlights of this concept vehicle.
GR Heritage Parts Project
To respond to customers’ desires to keep their beloved and memory-rich cars of yesteryear on the road, the GR Heritage Parts Project aims to reproduce discontinued replacement parts for sale as new genuine parts. On display at the show is a selection of reproduced parts slated for release in 2022 for the A70 Supra, A80 Supra, Toyota 2000GT, Land Cruiser 40 series, and AE86 Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno.
