Toyota Unveils GR Supra Racing Concept

Toyota Unveils GR Supra Racing Concept

Toyota unveiled the GR Supra Racing Concept at the 2018 SEMA Show, reviving the name of Toyota’s most celebrated sports car capable of performing both on the road and on the race track.

A compact, two-door car, the GR Supra Racing Concept created by Toyota Gazoo Racing has a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive configuration.

The GR Supra will participate in international motorsports events, including the World Rally Championship, World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours race, and will also be featured in a new update of the Gran Turismo Sport video game, scheduled for release in April 2018.

The bodywork design makes extensive use of strong but lightweight composite material for elements including the wide front and rear bumpers, front splitter and rear diffuser, side skirts, door mirror housings and the large rear wing. The hood features louvered air inlets. The chassis features a lowered front and rear suspension using OE components. BBS racing wheels with center-nut attachments are fitted with Michelin racing tires.

The braking system uses Brembo Racing calipers and discs with racing exhaust. The cabin is entirely competition-focused and is fitted with a racing dashboard, OMP driver’s seat and safety harness. OMP has also supplied the quick-release steering wheel, mounted on a racing column and equipped with a paddle shift system. A full roll cage, fire extinguishers, and the fuel and brake lines, pedal box, battery and wiring looms are all designed to competition standards.
