Production-Testing Concept Cars

Toyota is Using Its New GR Super Sport to Test Future Sports Cars

— January 15, 2018 — Autos
Toyota is not generally a car company that touts its own out-of-the-box innovations, but this recently changed with announcement of the GR Super Sport. Developed by Toyota's Gazoo Racing (GR) division, the concept vehicle that may actually see production as Toyota shifts some of its focus towards high-performance sports cars. Developed by Toyota GR president Shigeki Tomoyama, the Super Sport is not hoping to be a production car, but a test ground for turning race cars into road-legal sports cars.

The GR Super Sport is currently based on the company's TS050 racecar and is powered by a lean-burn, 2.4-liter twin turbo V6 hybrid system. The drivetrain horsepower is being reported at 986 horsepower, placing it in competition with the company's endurance racer. The body of the car features wide fenders over the wheels, a large rear wing, narrow cabin and a plethora of vents. In short, the design is sleek and clearly made with performance in mind. While the performance is already there, the goal of the GR team is to make the car more driver-friendly. There is no immediate concern to win races, but instead to control the vehicle and produce a version for the consumer market.
