Toyota has announced plans to unveil the GRMN (GAZOO Racing Master of Nürburgring) Sports Hybrid Concept II at the Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race.

Essentially an evolution of the previous MR2 Sport Hybrid concept, which debuted at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon, the new version features a mid-mounted, 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 245 hp (183 kW / 248 PS) and powers the rear wheels. Additionally, the car is equipped with an electric motor that powers the front wheels and gives the SHC an all-wheel drive system.

Detailed performance specifications haven't been released, but Toyota says the concept weighs approximately 1,500 kg (3,306 lbs) and has a combined output of 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS).

The car will debut this weekend, so stay tuned for additional information.
