The small GRMN was the Toyota’s inspired rally car, the Toyota Yaris WRC. The GRMN nameplate was actually an acronym from the Gazoo Racing Master of Nurburgring.
The GRMN had a unique exterior paint with red and black stripes. While it still looked pretty much similar to the Yaris, but with a more aggressive design and a big rear spoiler.
Inside the GRMN were chunky sport seats that were very comfortable aluminum pedals to complete the sports look. The steering wheel was also different from the one on the regular Yaris.
The back seats had limited headroom and legroom, not suitable for full grown ups.
The interior was pretty much designed to be driver-focused.
Under the hood of the GRMN we could find a supercharged 1.8-liter petrol engine that developed 212 HP. The only more powerful car in its segment at that time was the Renault Clio 4.
Lots of parts were replaced to achieve the GRMN’s performance, including the suspension that became better, lower and stiffer at the same time.
The steering was really fast and pretty accurate, however, it did not offer as much feedback as a true sports car did.
The small GRMN handled really well in turns with almost no body roll.
Buying a GRMN would be a difficult task, as only 600 units were produced worldwide, while only 80 of them entered the UK in 2018.
