Based on the Toyota Mark X, GRMN gave its handsome sedan a chunkier front bumper, a redesigned rear bumper with diffusers, revised side skirts and a rear lip spoiler. Completing the aggressive look is the new enhanced dual exhaust system, 19-inch aluminium wheels wearing Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres.
Mechanically, this Mark X uses a 3.5-litre V6 that produces more than 320hp and 380Nm of torque and is linked to a six-speed manual transmission. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited-slip differential. It is also said there are improvements made in the suspension and braking department. All these specifications sure point to a decent foundation for building a drift car.
While the GRMN Mark X concept is not on sale yet, you could buy Toyota’s G sports Mark X which is available to buyers in Japan. Also aggressively styled, it has different bumpers and wheels as compared to the normal Mark X. We especially love the LED running headlights, new sports exhaust with quad exhaust and 19-inch wheels. The car has been also lowered 20mm with the help of a new sports suspension.
The interior has also been spruced up with white gauges, black sports seats with red stitching and some carbon fibre trimmings. As with the regular Mark X, the car can only be had in a six-speed automatic transmission and is paired with either a 2.5-litre or 3.5-litre V6 which it shares with the Lexus GS saloon.
