Toyota is building the GR Super Sport Concept for real

Toyota is building the GR Super Sport Concept for real

- Might be the next generation of Le Mans cars that are closer to production models

- Gets the 2.4-litre turbo V6 hyrbid setup developing 986bhp (1000PS) power

Toyota had unveiled the Gazoo racing GR Super Sport concept on the eve of Le Mans, announcing their intention to build the 986bhp hypercar. From 2020, Le Mans has directed that even the LMP1 racecars will have to have a production car platform to facilitate better participation from manufacturers after Porsche and Audi left the premier class of the World Endurance Championship in the recent years.

The GR Concept has already been revealed before and will be powered by a 2.4-litre turbocharged V6 engine that works in conjunction with batteries and electric motors to give a combined output of 986bhp. According to the provisional rules for 2020, the KERS system will be allowed to power the front axle while the engine will drive the rear. And because KERS has to be offered on the road-version as well, you might be able to buy a Le Mans-spec road-legal supercar. 

Built mostly out of carbon-fibre, the GR Super Sport runs of a strict diet. Also, form will be given some precedence over the aero-race for lower drag coefficients which explains the flowing lines of the concept. While Toyota has not put forth a timeline, it might debut as early as next year or before the 2020 WEC season begins.
