The Japanese carmaker Toyota has recently unveiled its brand new vehicle that boasts a very appealing design.

Dubbed GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II, the vehicle was officially presented at the 39th Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race. The race took place near Nürburg, Germany.

It is worth mentioning that the car represents a modified version of the first Toyota hybrid sports car known as the Toyota MR2, which was presented in 2010 at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

The GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II has good chances of becoming the company’s first marketed hybrid sports vehicle.

The car has a 3.5 liter V6 engine able to generate 295 horsepower and reach acceleration from 0 to 60mph in 6 seconds.

The name of the car comes as a tribute to Hiromu Naruse, a Toyota driver who passed away as a result of a crash in 2010. The abbreviation GRMN means GAZOO Racing tuned by Meister of Nürburgring (the title refers to Naruse).
