Toyota GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II
Toyota will unveil the GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II this weekend at the 39th annual 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
The GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II is the second variant of Toyota's MR2 Spyder concept. The first edition was originally shown at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon. The GR stands for Gazoo Racing and the MN means it was developed with help from Toyota's renowned test driver Hiromu Naruse, or the "Master of Nurburgring."
The updated version gets a tweaked front end and a more developed sports-hybrid all-wheel-drive system. The powertrain consists of a 3.5-liter V6 engine that sits behind the seats to power the rear wheels and an electric motor that powers the front axle. Output stands at 245 horsepower for the mid-mounted gasoline engine and 295 total hp with the electric motor included. The concept will weigh approximately 3,300 pounds.
