Inaugurated at the Sao Palo motorbike event, HiLux GR (Gazoo Racing) Sport does not have extra strength, but some significant changes under its sticker-filled body.
It was fully designed and developed in Brazil, where only 420 samples will be sold.
Immediately clear is the visual treatment given to popular ute, with the red and black Gazoo Racing livery signature broken on the front and sides, as well as the type grille & # 39; Toyota & # 39; big silver.
Inside there are leather seats with accents "GR" on the headrests, push-start ignition buttons, and floor mats.
More significant changes must be made with the handling of HiLux, Toyota has provided a variety of springs and front dampers for HiLux GR Sport, and the new – & # 39; more linear & # 39; – steering.
The HiLux output of 130kW / 450Nm remains unchanged from a local example equipped with a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.
There are no Brazilian prices announced for HiLux GR Sport.
A Toyota Australia spokesman said CarsGuide GR Sport is a 'Brazil-market only' effort, adding that even though the company wants to promote the Gazoo Racing brand locally, there are no plans for similar models in Australia.
"The showroom is filled with X Rugged which has changed the suspension, but the revised steering wheel at GR Sport can be studied for Australia.
"Maybe we can choose items [from the GR Sport] in the future, but there are no plans for now, "he said.
