Toyota kept the GR Super Sport under wraps at the Tokyo Auto Salon, with everyone initially speculating that it would finally be the new Toyota Supra. Spectators weren't too disappointed however, when it turned out to be their latest LMP1 concept car.
Developed by Toyota GAZOO Racing, their official motorsport development unit and test bed for everything from rallying to road racing, the GR Super Sport incorporates Toyota's latest hybrid racing tech that powers the TS050 racecar in the World Endurance Championship. Under the sleek bodywork lies a lean burn 2.4 litre twin turbo V6 and Toyota Hybrid System Racing powertrain that puts out an astronomical 956 HP.
The GR Super Sport is practically a test bed with which Toyota plans to develop high performance components and technologies that will eventually find their way onto road-going vehicles. We're still waiting on the new Supra, though.
