Toyota unveils two special GR Yaris editions to honor Ogier and Rovanpera [+photos]

Toyota and its WRC team presented the GR Yaris Sebastien Ogier and the GR Yaris Kalle Rovanpera editions in Casino Square today.

The concept cars of these two special editions were revealed by Toyota at Auto Tokyo Salon last year while the new GR Yaris made its world premiere in Japan earlier this month. Sebastien Ogier and Kalle Rovanpera have won the drivers' titles with Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT in World Rally Championship, thus the Japanese car brand decided to create two special editions for its drivers. More specifically, purchasing lotteries for sales of both models in Japan are to start this spring through GR Garage locations nationwide, with sales planned to be limited to 100 units each. Both drivers have been incorporated into interior and exterior changes and 4WD control, TGR-WRT-related special-experience programs are planned for special-edition purchasers with the hope that they will join in on the excitement of the WRC. Finally, The Ogier Edition comes in a new matte color called "Matte Stealth Gray". The Rovanperä Edition features three-tone paint, which is applied in motifs by the designer of the helmet that Rovanperä uses when rallying, for colors that are achieved only by painting and without the use of car wrap or other colored adhesive sheets.
