Toyota Yaris Red GR-FOUR
- Essex, United Kingdom
- 1155 (Indicitive)
- 3% (minimum £300, maximum £3000)
The Toyota GR Yaris has had driving enthusiasts on the edge of their seats since its announcement and one could argue that it certainly has lived up to its expectation and more.
A true homologation car, if you are looking at this then you most definitely know that this a rather special car and a true driver’s car that will bring out the Tommi Makinen in you.
This particular model is registered on a 22 reg and the current owner has enjoyed only 1155 miles.
In addition this is the more desirable “circuit pack” which is a £3500 optional extra that includes:
- 18” forged alloy wheels that are lighter
- Front & rear Torsen Limited Slip Differentials
- Red brake calipers
- GR circuit suspension that includes stiffer springs, dampers and roll bars
The Yaris GR has some remarkable stats for a 1.6cc engine producing 257bhp, and a 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds with top speed at 143mph, all via a 6 speed gearbox and its impressive all wheel drive system.
The engineers at Toyota carefully thought about the power to weight ratio by adding a carbon roof and aluminium bonnet, doors and tailgate, which resulted in the overall weight of the car at 1280kg.
WALK AROUND VIDEO
Due to the minimal usage the car is not due for its first optional advisory check for another 2000 miles. The Toyota dealer advises for the car to be brought in for a routine check at 3000 miles, however the first intermediate service is not due till 6000 miles, which means there is a good 5000 miles before the new owner has to spend any money on service costs.
In addition the car comes with 2 keys from factory and all booklets/paperwork are present ready to hand over to the new owner.
BODYWORK & INTERIOR
The bodywork is pretty much still like a brand new car and we can confirm there are no marks to it.
The pearl red paint was an optional £880 extra and it really does give this car a finish like a famous Italian sports car. The owner has confirmed the car did receive a Supagard treatment from the dealership to help protect the paint.
This particular example also has a front and rear dash camera, which was an additional £399 factory extra.
All the seats in the car remain unmarked due to the minimal usage, so it does still feel and smell like a brand new car.
Wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres with gloss black 18’wheels – all 4 are unmarked and have plenty of tread and miles left in them.
If you are looking for power, uniqueness and an investment that will hold on to its value or likely go up in value, well the Yaris GR-Four ticks a lot of boxes for many people.
