Toyota Century GRMN, Copen GR featured at walkaround video #Century_GRMNFebruary 12, 2019
We love forbidden automotive fruits.
These are cars that are often limited to markets outside of the UK and will, most likely, never reach our shores.
And it’s brilliant.
The attached video gives us a short tour of the Century GRMN that was recently displayed at Tokyo Auto Salon.
It’s a massive black saloon riding on what appears to be a set of 19- or 20-inch wheels, hiding massive performance brakes.
The all-black appearance is complemented by a black mesh radiator grille and a small carbon fibre spoiler at the back.
It is reportedly mated to a CVT gearbox and, in contrast to the regular Century which is RWD, is channelling power to all four wheels.
The two-minute clip at the top of this page also contains footage with another rare bird, the Daihatsu Copen GR.
In fact, the full name of the car is Copen GR Sport Concept and – you’ve guessed it – it’s been developed with input from Toyota Gazoo Racing.
