Gazoo Racing Toyota Mark X makes us jealous

January 12, 2014

Fans of the Toyota Chaser and now Mark X will love this one. It’s an enhanced Mark X by Gazoo Racing, and it has just made its debut at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan.

The Toyota Mark X is a Japanese Domestic Market model. Unfortunately it is not sold anywhere else in the world, except via import systems. It showcases a 3.5-litre V6, like our Toyota Aurion, only power is sent to the rear wheels.

In the case of this concept, the engine produces 235kW and 380Nm, which is sent through a six-speed manual transmission and into a limited-slip differential at the back.

Gazoo Racing has fit the handsome sedan with a custom bodykit with neat front and rear spoilers, a carbon fibre roof, and a set of lightweight 19-inch forged BBS alloy wheels.

Inside, the interior is topped off with a set of bespoke sports seats, unique floor mats, and a new performance-oriented instrument cluster.

For us, the concept does nothing but make us more jealous. We wish the Mark X was sold in Australia.
