Announced during the 86th Annual 24 Hours of Le Mans, the hypercar will boast 1,000 horsepower and be based on the Toyota LMP1 concept racer that embraces hybrid engine technology in the midst of its competitors’ high-tech offerings like the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and LaFerrari. Under the hood will be a 2.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine combined with a powerful electric drive system. Toyota Gazoo Racing lead Shigeki Tomoyama made a statement on its development:
“As the automotive industry is approaching an era of big changes, we will continue our passion for making cars that are truly exciting. No matter how electronics and digital technology will continue to transform vehicles, we will make sure that our cars will not become just another commodity.”
