By CARSIFU | 12 January 2018


TOKYO: Toyota Gazoo Racing unveiled today the GR Super Sport Concept, a concept car that incorporates motorsports hybrid technology along with its test car at Tokyo Auto Salon 2018.

Toyota Gazoo Racing said its participation in motorsports would lead to Toyota making better street cars.

The GR Super Sport Concept is made mostly from the same main parts as the TS050 Hybrid race car that competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). Beneath the flowing and original form are a 2.4-litre V6 twin turbocharger and a Toyota Hybrid System-Racing (THS-R) powertrain, which have been honed through actual racing.
