The folks responsible for taking the LF-A to the Nurburgring, Gazoo Racing, have just unveiled the the GRMN Sports Hybrid at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon, a concept car based on the Toyota MR2 that utilizes a gas/electric hybrid power train to move the lightweight mid engine rear wheel drive two seat sports car. The GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept was created to show the world what a green dream car can be. The goal was to create a 1,300 kilogram vehicle that would be able to combine the fun of driving at speed with the wind in your hair with an efficient power source in order to offer the best of both worlds to the consumer. Gazoo Racing added a wide body kit to keep the modified MRS looking planted and make room for the additional hardware that makes up the four wheel drive hybrid drive train system.

Stay tuned for more details!

I think a lot of tuning up will be required to make this car run faster. They say that hybrid are not that fast at all.

The black beetle looks great rather than this Orange-Black beetle. The color combination looks awful.

Was there a hint that it might go into production? Insiders suggested that a car based on this concept might go on sale from 2011 to compete with the Honda CR-Z for the world’s first sports hybrid car.

Hybrids are good. They can make you travel more and emit less pollution to the environment. Although there are other questions as well. Are the mechanics (mostly mechanics from gasoline stuffs) knowledgeable of the technology or do they have to learn it first? I don’t want to have a breakdown somewhere and have a hard time finding people who knows how to fix it.

@Tommi_Mcrae : A car is hybrid if it uses less petroleum and battery.

Making more Hybrid cars can help our planet and at the same time satisfy the owner with the speed that they want.

What a great concept. The color, the layout, the design, it seems that everything went automatic. Plus, it is a green car. Hope they can make this one happen soon.

What does the hybrid system do for economy, exactly? I’m sure it has a CVT, and that’ll kill even more fun. It’s a waste of their time, and seems like the nerdy kid trying to act tough.
