The Japanese automaker Toyota has united its forces with Gazoo Racing to create a sportier version of the iQ model. Gazoo Racing had previously realized two Lexus LF-A race cars in order to compete in the 24 hour Nurburgring race. The car modified by Gazoo Racing is available on the Japanese market under the name Toyota iQ Gazoo Racing MN. The Toyota iQ Gazoo Racing MN will be produced in just 100 units. Also, it is important to mention that Gazoo Racing made this car starting from the front wheel drive Toyota iQ 130G that is available exclusively on the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM).
Gazoo Racing did not make any modifications regarding the engine of the car, so the 1.3 liter original engine keeps its basic performance figures. Still, the tuning company modified the mechanics of the car with a couple of important features, including a sport exhaust system, a six speed manual gearbox, a stiffer sport suspension that lowers the height of the car by 30 millimeters and a upgraded braking system.
The Toyota iQ Gazoo Racing MN has new styling features too, like optional racing decals, 16 inch alloy wheels with bigger sport tires, a roof spoiler, a new body kit with front and rear aprons and new side skirts.
The Gonzo Racing edition of the Toyota iQ can be already ordered by potential customers. The first cars will come off the production line in the month of November, this year. Unfortunately for the potential buyers from other countries, the Toyota iQ Gazoo Racing MN will only be a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) car. Hopes for a sportier iQ are closely related until now only to Scion, that is said to launch a somewhat modified version of the iQ in the USA towards the end of the next year.
