Toyota GRMN iQ approved for production image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced that the iQ GRMN supercharged has been approved for production.

After the Toyota iQ GRMN supercharged has been officially presented to the public at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon, the Japanese based car manufacturer has decided to give it the green light for production. According to the guys over at egmcartech.com, the Toyota iQ GRMN supercharged will hit the production line in the nearby future and it will be launched as an aggressive model and it is expected to be offered with a new widebody kit, while being powered by the same engine as the concept car presented in Tokyo this month.

There are no official details on the production version of the Toyota iQ GRMN (Gazoo Racing tuned by MN) supercharged but the concept car revealed at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon was powered by the standard 1.33 liter engine. Toyota said that the supercharged unit was putting down a total output of 128 horsepower and it had a peak torque of 180 Nm (133 lb-ft). This might not be considered a huge gain compared to the previous figures of 119 HP and 150 Nm (117 lb-ft) of torque, but the model has lost some weight on the way too. Only 100 units of the Toyota iQ GRMN supercharged will be made and production is expected to start in late 2012.
