2018 Toyota GR Super Sport Concept


“Pushing the limits for better” is the motto of the Toyota Gazoo Racing. The Japanese auto maker’s motorsports arm is behind the designing of the new 2018 Toyota GR Super Sport Concept. Toyota teased the sports car lovers with the new Concept. Japanese then displayed it at the Tokyo auto salon. This beast is a spectacular car perfect for competition racing. As the Gazoo president Shigeki Tomoyama says that, it is “the starting point for Toyota’s completely new challenge to develop sports cars from active race cars.”

2018 Toyota GR Super Sport Concept Exterior

The exterior looks are similar to the LMP1 or LMP2 cars. The car makers have taken inspiration from the Toyota LMP1. The super sports car has a low-gravity profile with shark fin and racing driver cockpit. The headlight designs are not confirmed yet, but we assume that it is going to be in hexagon that will match the taillights. It will be running on 18 inches alloy wheels which are attached with 330/710 R18 smooth racing tires from Bridgestone.

2018 Toyota GR Super Sport Concept Engine

The GR Sport Concept is charged by a 735-kilowatt twin turbo V-6, the 2.4-liter hybrid combined engine that produces output up to 986 horsepower. An electric motor generator is connected to the engine that drives the rear wheels and a motor generator in front that drives the front wheels. That makes the car a four-wheel drive system. The hybrid system is similar to the one integrated into the car which takes part in the World Endurance Championship, the exclusive ‘TS050 Racecar’.

Price and Release date

As this is the concept car until now, so we are not sure it will go into production or not. So nothing can be predicted about the 2018 Toyota GR Concept price and release date. However, if it comes to the market, we are sure it will be marked as the next generation of sports car.
