(MN stands for “Meister of Nürburgring”, referring to Hiromu Naruse (1944-2010), a TMC test driver and chief of the GAZOO Racing team.)

The GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept II is an updated version of a gasoline-electric sports concept shown at Tokyo Auto Salon 2010. The vehicle features advanced styling and an improved sports-hybrid AWD system with the main power unit (183 kW/245 hp, 3.5L gasoline engine, rear-wheel drive motors and transmission) located in the middle of the body and a front-wheel drive motor in front—all positioned to improve maneuverability, enhance driving enjoyment and provide enhanced stability.

Maximum output from the system is 220 kW (295 hp).
