Tokyo, Japan – Toyota will launch its newly-developed G Sports conversion car series in Japan in mid-2010. The series, to be sold through Toyota dealers, is intended to offer customers “automotive seasoning” that Toyota has pursued through its GAZOO Racing activities.
The G series is designed to create unique vehicles with personalized interior and exterior design, along with sports-driving performance, with reduced production costs. Rather than outsource development to a customization firm, Toyota has directly designed its sports conversion series.
Special features include sports suspension, aerodynamic parts and racing-style seats. A special focus has been made on fun-to-drive handling, through fine-tuning carried out by the GAZOO Racing test drivers who drove the Lexus LFA in the 24 Hours Nürburgring race in Germany.
