Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept

Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept surfaced last December as a delineation of the vehicle. However, the motorsport division of Toyota, Gazoo Racing, came up with the teaser of the all-new Super Sport Concept. Hence the all-new super concept car divulged in the 2018 Tokyo Auto Show. Moreover, Gazoo Racing holds up their GR Super Sport Concept with all its glory. The Tokyo Auto Show is known as the SEMA version of Japan. However, that means the show will include a large number of incredible vehicles on display.  Hence the Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept also shared the same platform with the vehicle. But to some extent, the GR Super Sport Concept is more absurd in the 2018 Tokyo Auto Show.Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept

However, in the Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept, Gazoo Racing has included a lot of components. Mainly those are available on TSO50 Hybrid with which the automaker raced at WEC. Hence all the components are collected and packed so as to give a striking effect in the vehicle. The Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept gets its power from the 2.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. However, this type of engine is most common in real race cars. Hence the engine is been coupled with Toyota Hybrid System so that it can deliver 1,000 PS (986 horsepower). Though the motorsport division of Toyota had refused to disclose any details but disclosed their plans. As per Shigeki Tomoyama, the President of Gazoo Racing, it exhibits plans of developing the sports car. He added that it displays Toyota’s plans to take the real race car as inspiration for the same.Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept

The Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept bears an identical look with the TSO50 Hybrid. Despite the similarity, the two can race with each other in WEC. However, there is no detail of the car that makes it suitable for use on the road. It neither had regular windows and nor the usual doors too. The Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept is filled with lots of aero. Seeing the front-end design and front canards, it appears the car came from the actual race car with little variation. However, back of the car is equipped with the fin which appeared as substantial rear wing like competitors in WEC.  Hence it appears as if the motorsport division took the racing experience of Toyota to manufacture the car. It will be great if the supercars and sports cars of future appear like this one.Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept Toyota Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept
