The Toyota GR Super Sport Concept Highlights Future with Familiar

Borrowing parts from the World Endurance Championship TS050 race car.

Following its introduction of the GR HV Sports Concept a few months back, Toyota has revealed its GR Super Sport Concept, which borrows many of its influences from race cars. The carbon fiber chassis and powertrain of the vehicle shares some main components of the company’s WEC TS050 race car and is equipped with 13-inch-wide slick tires.

Tall wide fenders, along with a huge rear wing and narrow cabin, complete its race car aesthetic. It also sports a twin-turbocharged hybrid V6 with 986 horsepower.
