Building off of our general overview of Toyota's offerings at the Tokyo Auto Salon, here are more details on GRMN iQ Supercharger prototype.

The GRMN (Gazoo Racing tuned by MN) iQ Supercharger prototype with 1.33-liter engine was first presented at last year's Tokyo Auto Salon with 119 hp (89 kW / 121 PS) and 158 Nm (117 lb-ft).

Now after a few tweaks, the revised iQ Supercharger prototype produces 128 hp (95 kW / 130 PS) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft). Not exactly a huge gain but in the tiny city car that weighs only 990 kg (2183 lbs), it could be noticeable.

Hopefully looks are more important to prospective buyers as the exterior styling has also been completely revised. It features a full wide body kit featuring Blister fenders, has an unmistakable front bumper fascia, rear spoiler, sports seats and 16-inch Enkei alloy wheels.

The tiny iQ has a six-speed close ratio transmission, bigger brakes, tuned suspension and a sport exhaust system.

GRMN will make 100 units starting at the end of this year.

See press release below for full specifications.
