Toyota unveils 999bhp GR Super Sport Concept

Toyota unveils 999bhp GR Super Sport Concept

Toyota just publicly flexed its muscles at the automotive fraternity by showcasing its 999bhp GR Super Sport concept car at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon. Interestingly, it gets hybrid tech that’s evolved from their participation at the WEC (World Endurance Championship).

It’s a given that manufacturers pump their knowledge gained from motorsports into more focussed road-going cars. In the same way, Toyota is also expected to be serious and eventually make the GR Super Sport see the light of production despite it being just a concept for now. This can also be inferred from Toyota’s President, Akio Toyoda, who expressed the brand’s intention to build a production hybrid supercar.

This concept gets most of its design flair from their LMP1 vehicle, the TS050 hybrid. But it doesn’t end there. Toyota has also hinted that this concept uses a fair amount of the same components which means that we are essentially looking at a road-legal hybrid sports car. Powering the GR Super Sport is a twin-turbocharged 2.4-litre V6 hybrid motor that makes a combined output of 999bhp.

Toyota added that it will be some time before somebody gets behind the wheel of this sports car, and if this is anything to go by, it certainly sounds promising. Stay tuned to CarWale for more information in the time to come.
