Toyota has decided to enter for the big door in the world of sport versions with their new Yaris GRMN.

The model shown on the track has most of its parts camouflaged, but what I do know for sure are all components that make a sports car in its own right. Not only has almost the double of power than a Yaris 110 Active, but has a differential type mechanical Torsen, which significantly improves the traction and the response to a lot of speed.

A few more pieces that notable to stop a car that weighs only 1.135 kg. In addition, the development team has chosen the tire sport Bridgestone Potenza RE050. But, where perhaps more emphasizes the sportiness of this compact is under the hood, which has a surprise that ally him with muscle cars americans like the Chevrolet Camaro or the Ford Mustang GT.

The appearance of Toyota Yaris GRMN will arrive in Spain in January 2018. Should his appearance at the return of the japanese brand to the World Championship of Rallies. Something to note in the future colors chosen for the model, which will be the white, the red and the black.
