Toyota’s hybrid concept

The GRMN Sports Concept II.

Toyota could its MR2 nameplate after revealing a new roadster concept.

The Japanese is already on a mission to win back the of keen drivers with its FT-86 coupe that bring the Celica name to Toyota showrooms.

The GRMN Hybrid Concept II is the company’s preview of a potential mid-engined following the original concept in early 2010.

It’s based on the old MR2’s platform, the new GRMN – which stands for Racing tuned by Meister of – features a more curvaceous and design that visually it closer to the FT-86 coupe.

Power is still from an petrol-electric drivetrain, though the V6 in size from 3.3 to 3.5 litres and jumps to 220kW. The engine and motor are borrowed from the RX450h hybrid soft-roader.

The hybrid roadster is than the previous concept, a length of 4350mm and width of making it slightly bigger an Audi TT. A height of just is lower than an Mazda

Toyota’s new push to attract enthusiasts can be attributed to CEO Akio who is a keen racer.

Toyota’s Business Model so bad after all. Build up and Cash Flow by efficiently Product that people buy and once there is excess start branching out.

Styling could be cleaner the MX5 is but not bad for a first attempt. Length and Dimensions are a tad on the large size

Great but perhaps a little too much on the flared arches. Strange to see an trans in a car like this; expected a 6-speed — might be a function of the hybrid Although I have some about the driveability of a clutch-free MR2, go ahead Toyota, my day and bring it out.

MR2 would have been if it was 4 seater with option of 6 manual gear which missed out on. Having FT86 to release mid next year, AWD be good approach to seperate the two This car will not sell than S2000 therefore the will definately be close to Offcourse Japanese will get $38K and US at $32K.

What a looking car (on the outside)! Looks it has taken a little design from Lotus, Aston and even some Porsche, still looking like a successor to the MR2 — but hotter. the interior looks like a compilation from the Toyota/Lexus bin. The gorgeous exterior to move on inside the car a little.

overdue from Toyota, but late than never. long bagged modern but this is certainly something I see myself in.

@bhelo — more Are you serious. 220kW is equal to the version of the GenIII 5.7L V8 and was in a relative behemoth! Sports need drivability and flexability, not raw 220kW is more than in a two seat roadster.

We’ll hear the end of it from Akuma,

Nice. Hope i’d one of these in the used classified in 10 years time for $20K. It sit nicely on the drive way beside the Roadster with a Veilside
