Lexus and Toyota tune up for Tokyo Auto Salon

Alex Goy

Toyota and Lexus unleashed some truly special metal at the Tokyo Auto Salon – the world's biggest custom car show.

First up, Toyota revealed the iQ's racier side. The GRMN (Gazoo racing tuned by MN) iQ Racing Concept boasts a chunky bodykit, racing alloys and LED daytime running lights on the outside, while the inside features a full rollcage. The engine wasn't left untouched – a supercharger adds extra (unspecified) grunt. In case you're wondering who Gazoo is, they're the people who prepare the race-spec Lexus LF-A racers.
