Gazoo Racing Teams with Toyota on Sporty "GRMN" Hybrid

Toyota and Gazoo Racing trotted out this hot little hybrid number just before this weekend’s Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race (which, incidentally, was won by Porsche).

The GRMN ii takes up where Gazoo’s first hybrid concept (based on the 3-rd generation Toyota MR2) leaves off, with slinky new bodywork that plays off Toyota’s MR2 design heritage and an improved AWD hybrid system that sees a 50 hp electric motor powering the front wheels working in concert with a standard 249 hp Toyota 2GR-FXE V6 engine from the company’s ubiquitous Camry model.
