After a 17 year absence, the amazing Toyota team is back in the FIA World Rally Championship with the 2017 Yaris WRC. This has inspired the new limited-edition Yaris GRMN: a red-blooded hot hatch refined on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife, available to pre-order this summer!
What's unique about the Yaris GRMN is the sensational supercharged 1.8 litre engine that produces more than a whopping 205bhp.
The engine's power is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission creating ‘best-in-class’ times, both for the sprint from 0 to 62mph, and acceleration from 50 to 75mph in fourth gear.
The Yaris GRMN has been extensively tested on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife with plenty of help from Toyota Gazoo Racing’s motorsport activities combined with a reinforced chassis. In addition the bracing means better traction and handling so the car sticks closer to the ground more closely ensuring all its power is translated into a thoroughly rewarding drive.
Available in only a three door form, the Yaris GRMN rides on the 17 inch BBS multi-spoke alloys, equipped with a unique, black wing-type rear spoiler.
Features include front and rear bumper designs, a rear diffuser, a distinctive centre exhaust tailpipe, sports seats and small-diameter and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The GRMN model will turn heads with eye-catching white, red and black flash highlighting the bonnet and sills reflecting colours.
