Toyota’s motorsports development arm Toyota GAZOO Racing (TGR) will be participating at next year’s Tokyo Auto Salon. With this, TGR released a teaser photo of what seems to be the centerpiece of their booth – the Prius C TGR concept and the Yaris TGR concept.
The teaser photo suggests the Prius C and Yaris TGR concepts are fitted with similar body kits – front bumpers with huge air intakes, fog lamps, side skirts, and multi-spoke rims.
In addition, the Yaris comes with a rear spoiler which is comparable to the hatchback’s high performance variant. Unfortunately, Toyota has yet to share more details about the 2 concepts.
Apart from that, TGR’s “Open Pit, Open Garage” themed booth will showcase its vehicles that have competed in various motorsports activities, as well as cars that have been developed as a result of these competitions.
Some of the vehicles expected to be on display are the Yaris WRC and several customized C-HRs. Lastly, Lexus Gazoo Racing will debut its GT3 racecar which was based off the RC F.
The 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon, an event for customized cars, will happen on January 13 to 15 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture, Japan.
