The Toyota Vios is the country’s best-selling nameplate, making its way into the homes of families, as well as corporate fleets and even taxis. With the enormous marketing efforts being placed towards the Vios Racing Festival, it is also undeniable that the Toyota Vios is the best-selling race car in the Philippines. To further bring the waku doki experience to more people, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is proud to announce that it is offering the Vios One Make Race (OMR) car for retail to the general public. Starting this month, car enthusiasts can now purchase their very own Vios racecar for only P1,400,000. The brand-new Vios OMR units, which are of the same build as the racecars used at the Vios Racing Festival (VRF), can be ordered in all 70 Toyota dealerships nationwide.
Purchasing a Vios OMR unit at the special price of P1.4 million automatically enlists its owner to race at the circuit format of the VRF starting this November, under Promotional Class. For buyers who will purchase after the 2019 season ends, they are required to race for the 2020 season.
“By making the Vios OMR available to the public, Toyota is helping to promote the grassroots motorsports scene by making it a more inclusive sport for all racing fans,” said TMP First VicePresident Ms. Cristina Arevalo.
“This new generation of the Vios racecar is a good entry point to the world of motorsports because of its signature quality, durability, and reliability. Instead of simply being spectators, future owners are encouraged to enroll at the Toyota Racing School and participate in the upcoming legs of our Vios Racing Festival series.”
The Vios OMR shares the same powerful frame as the regular Vios G variant, with a 1.5L engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It produces a maximum output of 106 hp at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.
Aside from speed and driving precision, the Vios OMR units are also equipped with standard safety features for track racing. Below are the racing modifications made to the Vios OMR:
