Toyota GR Yaris – get it while you still can!

The cut-price 200kW GR Yaris hot hatch finds more than 500 buyers in just over 24 hours with 2 thirds ordered in white

This pocket rocket Yaris GR is priced at $39,950 drive-away for the first 1000 units and has attracted 560 sales in just 24 hours. The price of $39, 950 represents a $10 000 price cut.

To get your name on the list a $1000 deposit was required. Unlike the Toyota Supra, which sold out its first allocation of 300 vehicles in just 22 minutes, the Yaris nameplate doesn’t have the same sort of street cred.

The GR at the end of it’s name stands for Gazoo Racing and this particular model will be powered by a Gazoo Racing-developed 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine (200kW/380Nm) pumping through a bespoke all-wheel drive system and a six-speed manual gearbox.

The team at Perth’s Finest is pretty confident that we will be seeing a few of these Toyota Yaris GR’s driving around Perth in the near future.
