Toyota unveils GR Super Sport Concept auto

Toyota Unveils The GR Super Sport Concept

The concept was developed by Gazoo Racing, Toyota's motorsport division that is tipped to spin out as a separate performance brand for more desirable versions of the Japanese vehicle maker's road-going cars. We know that it gets a twin-turbo, direct injection V6 engine coupled with a Toyota Hybrid System lifted from the LMP1 auto.

The GR Super Sport Concept made its debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon today to showcase what the firm has learnt from its Le Mans racing programme and how that can benefit Toyota's road cars. You look at Mercedes-Benz and it has the Project One, Aston Martin and Red Bull have the Valkyrie and now Toyota has something which it derives from its expertise at the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

"The newly revealed concept is composed of mostly the same main parts as the TS050 Hybrid, reflecting Toyota GAZOO Racing's aim to ensure that technologies and know-how acquired in motorsport are fed back into new production vehicles", Toyota said in a statement. "Although it will be some time before people have the opportunity to get behind the wheel, I hope that the GR Super Sport Concept will give a taste of what we aim to achieve with our next-generation sports cars". Say hello, then, to the GR Super Sport Concept, a sibling to the TS050 that now competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), and certainly not your parents' Camry.

"If the e-Palette Concept is the next generation of the horse-drawn carriage, the GR Super Sport Concept would be the polar opposite as the next-generation racehorse".

Toyota has launched a new performance brand, Gazoo Racing, via the Yaris GRMN hot hatch. There are no headlights or regular windows either, so it doesn't make a very practical road vehicle. In the same way, Toyota is also expected to be serious and eventually make the GR Super Sport see the light of production despite it being just a concept for now.
