Toyota Mark X G Sports Concept

Japanese carmake Toyota will begin a gradual rollout in the middle of 2010 of the G Sports 1. The series will be sold at Toyota dealerships. The G series was designed for customers who strongly desire to own a unique vehicle offering them a personalized interior and exterior design, but also some sports-driving performance. The base car is equipped with internal and external components that include sports suspension, aerodynamic parts and racing-style seats. Under the hood it has a 2GR-FSE engine capable of developing 318 PS and 380 Nm of torque. the carmaker offers as exterior finish livery, Majora.

Toyota announces it plans to begin a gradual rollout in Japan in mid-2010 of its newly developed "G Sports"1 (G`s) sports conversion car2 series. The series, to be sold through Toyota-brand dealers, is meant to offer to a wider range of people the "automotive seasoning" that TMC has pursued through its GAZOO Racing3 activities.

The G`s series is designed for customers who strongly desire to own a unique vehicle, offering them a personalized interior and exterior design along with sports-driving performance. TMC has directly designed this sports conversion series, instead of the conventional approach of outsourcing development to a customization firm.

The base vehicle of the G`s series is equipped with internal and external components that include sports suspension, aerodynamic parts and racing-style seats. A special focus has been placed on "driving seasoning" to make handling fun, through fine-tuning carried out by the GAZOO Racing test drivers who drove the Lexus "LF-A" in the 24 Hours N├╝rburgring race in Germany and developed the "iQ"-based "GAZOO Racing tuned by MN4" (GRMN).

TMC`s aim is to bring that "driving seasoning" and the joy of automobiles to a wider range of customers by reducing production costs through partial inline customization5 and other measures.

TMC has been carrying out a diverse range of activities to broaden the joy and dreams that vehicles inspire, along with its ongoing efforts to use hybrid-vehicle and other technologies to address environmental issues.

In addition to the "FT-86 Concept" rear-wheel drive compact sports car and the Lexus "LFA" shown at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, plans call for TMC`s sports model lineup to expand through the introduction of conversion models and sports-trim models of mass-produced vehicle series, such as the GRMN and G`s series.
