- Toyota 'GR Supra Racing Concept' World Premiere, Coming Soon to Gran Turismo Sport
On 06 March at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, Toyota announced their 'GR Supra Racing Concept'. This concept car will be added to Gran Turismo Sport with an update in April, and only Gran Turismo players will be able to experience its performance.
The 'GR Supra Racing Concept' is a concept model based on the Toyota Supra sports car produced up to 2002, brought back after 16 years as a race car. It was developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, the division of Toyota that handles their motorsports activities and the 'GR' sports car series.
This traditional long nose – short deck form machine, is a front engine, rear wheel drive 2 door coupé. The compact body utilises light weight high strength carbon composite materials implemented in front line racing. The large blister fenders and rear wing, as well as the rear diffuser, were developed to provide superior aerodynamic and driving performance.
The suspension, wheels, tyres, and brakes utilise pure race spec hardware. The interior contains a dashboard with a rear view monitor, racing seats, steering wheel with paddle shifters. The column, pedals, and roll cage are all complying with racing specifications too.
The Supra was loved by fans all over the world for a quarter of a century as “The Sports of Toyota”, and left a solid footprint in motorsports including the All-Japan GT race series, the IMSA Sports Car Races in the U.S., and the Le Mans. You will be able to experience its performance very soon, please look forward to the April update of Gran Turismo Sport!
