Toyota has quietly introduced the Vitz GRMN Turbo in Japan.

Previewed by a concept at the Tokyo Auto Salon, the production model is a three-door hatchback that has been equipped with an aggressive front bumper, revised side skirts and a massive rear diffuser. The car also has LED-infused headlights, a sports exhaust system, GRMN badging and 17-inch BBS aluminum wheels. It will be available exclusively in Black Mica or Super White II.

Interior changes are limited but include sports seats, revised instrumentation and a three-spoke steering wheel with red contrast stitching. We can also see special floor mats and alloy pedals.

Under the hood, the 1.5-liter engine has been equipped with a turbocharger which enables it to produce 152 HP (112 kW) and 206 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission.

Rounding out the changes are a sport-tuned suspension and high-performance brakes.

Production will be limited to 200 units and pricing starts at ¥2,700,000 ($27,910 / €20,985 / £18,015). The company will begin accepting orders on August 25th and the cars will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
