Alongside the unveiling of the Toyota Supra last week, UMW Toyota has also announced the launch of GR Garage in Malaysia – the first outside of Japan.
GR Garage was introduced in Japan some years ago to cater to car enthusiasts. UMW Toyota’s Chief Motorsports Officer and Deputy Chairman, Mr Akio Takeyama said, “The GR Garage [is] a place where enthusiasts can gather and talk about their passion of cars, especially sportscars and motorsports.”
The GR Garage will be carrying Gazoo Racing specific products at selected Toyota dealers, including the GR Supra, GR high performance products, and GR merchandises to provide a “shop in shop” experience to the customers.
As a start, the GR Garage will be introduced at five outlets – Wing Hin Balakong, PCM Klang, Focus Tetap Setia Alam, Telagamas Kulim, and Mutiara Johor Bahru.
Toyota Gazoo Racing is the umbrella organisation for Toyota’s global motorsports programme. Toyota aims to transfer technical learnings from the racetrack and rally stages to the development of new generations of sport’s focused GR models, as well as its wider range of vehicles.
