The Toyota GR Yaris is a special model, but for one owner it seems that this was not enough and he decided to invest several thousand euros on it.
The GR Yaris is a small but perfectly capable car, with which the Toyota proved that it can deliver remarkable performance cars even in a small… package. It made the acclaimed city car a pocket rocket, as we tend to say about small fast models, producing 261 hp from a 3-cylinder 1,600 hp turbo engine.
An engine that has great endurance, as in this version it could be considered mild, since in the GR Corolla it reaches 300 hp. Power that we will also see in the updated version of the GR Yaris this year.
The GR Yaris is proving to be a very worthwhile car, with plenty of potential that tuners love to look for in order to make it even more powerful. In this particular GR Yaris located in Great Britain, the conversion was undertaken by SRD Tuning.
Thus, the supermini with the G16E-GTS engine, after many improvements, using a Pulsar turbine rose to 537 horsepower performance. Also, the engine can run on ethanol fuel, but in this case the output drops to 463 hp.
As the tuning house emphasizes, with this data it cannot make more power, as it is limited by the escape valve which is small. On the other hand the car owner believes that the performance is achievable 669 horsepower with appropriate modifications. To achieve the goal the engine has been removed and reinstalled in the GR Yaris five times.
Changes are never enough for those into the upgrade process, so this particular Toyota GR Yaris owner has asked for a stock gearbox to be fitted, new adjustable suspensionto grow the tracks and to place a wide body kit. In any case, the cost does not seem to concern him, as so far he has already spent 150,000 euros to bring the car to the condition it is, without being fully satisfied yet.
