How do I find sport parts and motorsport accessories?
Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) has taken on a new role and as a result we are no longer in a position to market tuning products directly ourselves. We can therefore no longer supply parts directly.
In case you require spare parts for your MR2 Turbo, Yaris P1 compressor, Lexus IS or RX compressor, you can ask your dealer to contact TMG directly.
For TRD parts from Japan, please contact one of the European distributors listed on this link: http://www.trdparts.jp/english/distributor.html
For TRD parts from the United States please contact: http://www.trdusa.com/contactus.cfm

What does Toyota Motorsport charge for its services?
Is Toyota Motorsport only offering motorsport services?
No. TMG is a high performance centre for design, development and production in a wide range of sectors. TMG started life in the world of top-level motorsport but during that time already diversified into road car tuning. Now TMG’s facilities are available for the aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer industries and we provide a first-class service for original equipment manufacturers, prototype developers and mass-market product developers alike. We offer a flexible service tuned exactly to your needs, without limits on industry or speciality.
Does Toyota Motorsport only offer individual part development or can you design and build full cars?
At TMG, we are flexible and skilled in developing anything from a small part to a full car. Considering our background in top-level motorsport, TMG is uniquely placed to offer complete design, development and manufacture of low-production-volume cars, from rally cars to touring cars to prototypes.
How can I find out the detailed specifications of your machines?
If my car is at Toyota Motorsport, can I be sure my competitors will not see it?
You can be confident TMG has the highest possible respect for confidentiality and with secure, exclusive work spaces we can ensure your developments are entirely ‘for your eyes only’.
We do not have the engineering resources to analyse test results. Does Toyota Motorsport offer this too?
Yes. As well as offering facilities and operators, we also offer every imaginable level of engineering support. Our packages are fully customisable so we can create a bespoke solution to match your exact requirements so get in touch and allow us to put together a customised plan.
Can I rent Toyota Motorsport’s facilities and bring my own engineers?
Yes. Our flexible packages allow for bespoke levels of service, so we can provide a solution identical to your needs. However, please note that due to the unique nature of many of our machines, in most cases TMG machine operators must be used to ensure reliable and safe testing.
