If you thought the Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept we showed you last week from the Tokyo Auto Salon was impressive, prepare to be blown away.
Introducing the Prius G Sports Concept – the latest attempt by Toyota to shake the appliance image.
Bringing the conversion and tuning accessories market in-house, Toyota says the G Sports series is “designed for customers who strongly desire to own a unique vehicle, offering them a personalised interior and exterior design along with sports-driving performance”.
The drivetrain of the Prius G Sports is unchanged, but the suspension is 30mm lower and the racy hybrid is pulled up quicker by bigger brakes.
The new aero tweaks include enormous revisions to the front and rear bumpers, rear wheel covers, rear spoiler, carbon fibre mirrors, sideskirts, underbody work and a twin sports exhaust system.
Daytime running LEDs and beefier alloys top off the changes outside, while inside the Prius scores a new dashboard, Recaro seats, leather steering wheel, aluminium pedals and G Sports badging on the gear stick and star button.
G Sports sales will begin out of Toyota dealers in Japan from later this year.
