The GR Yaris may not be sold in America, but that doesn’t mean we’re not interested in any upgrades or additions Toyota may have in store for the car going forward. That’s why we’re excited to see a hardcore prototype with some visible performance upgrades testing on the Nürburgring.
The Statesidesupercars YouTube channel managed to get a few clips of this sporty-looking GR Yaris getting flogged around the Green Hell during one of the track’s recent industry test pool sessions. The car shares much of its shape with the standard GR Yaris, but there are a few aero additions we can spot, including a set of dive planes up front and a bigger raised wing out back. There also looks to be some venting on the front fenders to ease wheel well pressure, and more camouflaged mods towards the rear.
