Toyota Vitz GRMN Turbo introduced in Japan



Produces 152 HP (112 kW) and 206 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque

Toyota has quietly introduced the Vitz GRMN Turbo in Japan.
Previewed by a concept at the Tokyo Auto Salon, the production model is a three-door hatchback that has been equipped with an aggressive front bumper, revised side skirts and a massive rear diffuser. The car also has LED-infused headlights, a sports exhaust system, GRMN badging and 17-inch BBS aluminum wheels. It will be available exclusively in Black Mica or Super White II.
Interior changes are limited but include sports seats, revised instrumentation and a three-spoke steering wheel with red contrast stitching. We can also see special floor mats and alloy pedals.
Under the hood, the 1.5-liter engine has been equipped with a turbocharger which enables it to produce 152 HP (112 kW) and 206 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission.
Rounding out the changes are a sport-tuned suspension and high-performance brakes.
Production will be limited to 200 units and pricing starts at 2,700,000 ($27,910 / 20,985 / 18,015). The company will begin accepting orders on August 25th and the cars will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Awesome gesture and nod that they're not totallly asleep at the wheel but 200 unit production is unfortunate and price tag unrealistic. I have a feeling they built this to compete in some factory race class somewhere

Looks good with some nice numbers for the 1.5. I would'nt mind having one.
I'm with you on the possible homologation for a racing series.

I think it's good that some car companies are returning to offering 4cyl turbo powered cars like this one.

Back in the day I drove several cars like the Dodge Colt with the dohc 1.6 that only made 135hp but was a lot of fun.

I've been a V8 guy most of my life but you can't deny the fun of driving a light weight 4 banger with a turbo/supercharger :)
