Toyota unveils GR Super Sport Concept vehicle

Share

Like the race vehicle it's inspired by, the Super Sport Concept is powered by a twin-turbo 2.4-liter V6 engine and a Toyota-Hybrid System-Racing powertrain producing a combined output of 986 horsepower. That's thanks to a twin-turbo direct-injection 2.4-liter V6 and the race-spec electric motors of Toyota's hybrid system.

"Rather than developing production cars into sports cars, we aim to work out how to incorporate the know-how developed through races and rallies into production cars", Mr Tomoyama said.

Cuba's Foreign Ministry "strongly" condemned Friday night the " racist , denigrating and gross" statements by U.S. They'll listen, that's their primary job to listen, and they'll reiterate the respect we have for that nation".

Gazoo Racing president Shigeki Tomoyama said the concept was a "starting point" for Toyota's plan to develop sports cars from active race cars. However, Toyota says it does give us a taste of what the company aims to achieve with its next-generation sports cars. It was developed by Toyota's Gazoo Racing division, and draws plenty of inspiration from the TS050 Hybrid World Endurance Championship race vehicle. It's called the GR Super Sport and for the time being it's officially only a concept. At CES, the company presented the e-Palette Concept, which is basically an automated living room. "Its appeal is more personal, like that of a much-loved horse to its owner". We already know that Toyota's Gazoo performance division is plotting a new halo sports auto as a successor to the iconic Supra, so it seems possible that it could adopt the Super Sport Concept's hybrid powertrain.

Toyota's return to world rallying saw it finish third in the manufacturer championship past year, with Latvala fourth in the drivers' standings.
