The main concept vehicles on display include, from the GRMN series, the 1.5-liter three-door 'Vitz' subcompact 'GRMN Vitz Turbo Concept', which is turbocharged for enhanced power performance and features a tuned suspension and strengthened body for circuit courses, and the 'GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum', a rear-wheel-drive circuit sports concept equipped with a turbocharger and supercharger. The G's series display features the gasoline-hybrid 'Aqua'-based 'Aqua G Sports Concept', which provides excellent fuel efficiency and driving enjoyment, and the sports sedan 'Mark X G Sports Carbon Roof Concept', whose carbon roof provides reduced body weight and increased driving performance.
Four customized '86' rear-wheel-drive compact sports cars—'86 × style Cb', '86 Modellista Concept', '86 TRD Griffon Concept' and 'Tom's N086V Concept'—are also on display at the TMC booth to highlight the 86's expansive customization possibilities.
TMC actively exhibits at the Tokyo Auto Salon as it views the event as one where peoples' dreams about automobiles convene. Building on last year's show, TMC hopes to convey the joy of owning, driving, and discussing automobiles cultivated through GAZOO Racing5 activities to an even broader range of people, thereby creating new car enthusiasts.Source - Toyota
