TOYOTA GAZOO Racing aims to develop its cars and people toward the goal of "making ever-better cars" through participation in motorsports activities, such as top category races including the World Rally Championship (WRC) and World Endurance Championship (WEC), as well as national rallies and races. The technologies and know-how acquired through such activities are subsequently fed back into the development of new production vehicles. As part of this integrated development process from motorsports activities through product development, Toyota launched the new "GR" sports car series in September.

The theme selected by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing for Tokyo Auto Salon 2018 is "Meister's Workshop" and will feature cars that have competed in various motorsports activities, as well as cars that have been developed as a result of these competitions. The aim is also to promote the enjoyment of vehicle customization and communicate how cars will continue to exude an increasingly exciting presence in the future.

In addition to vehicles competing in motorsports such as the Yaris WRC and TS050 Hybrid, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing will also be exhibiting the GR Super Sport Concept, a concept car originate from participation in the WEC, as one example of how technological feedback acquired through motorsports activities is incorporated. The exhibited vehicles will also include production vehicles such as the 86 GR and the Vitz GRMN, a 150-unit limited edition model for Japan.

The vehicles scheduled to compete in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in May will also be revealed, while the drivers for the race will be announced on January 12.

The motorsport division has taken a lot of the components found on the TS050 Hybrid that Toyota raced in WEC and packed them into a striking concept. Power comes from a 2.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, just like in the actual race car, that’s also paired to a Toyota Hybrid System. Combined output for the concept is claimed to be 986 horsepower (1,000 PS).

Besides the information on the powertrain, Gazoo Racing didn’t provide any other interesting tidbits on the vehicle, except that it previews how Toyota, according to Gazoo Racing’s President Shigeki Tomoyama, plans to “develop sports cars from active race cars.”

In addition to having a similar powertrain to the TS050 Hybrid, the GSR Super Sport Concept looks like it could compete in the WEC. There are no headlights, there’s nothing that resembles a traditional door, no regular windows, and nothing that gives us the impression that it could be used on the road.

What the concept does have, though, is plenty of aero. Look at those front canards and the strange front-end design. They both look like they come straight off of the real-life race car, just spruced up a little bit. There’s also a fin on the back, like WEC competitors, and what appears to be a sizable rear wing. It really does look like the motorsport arm took Toyota’s racing experience and turned it into a car.

If this is what future sports cars and supercars from Toyota will look like, then we’re definitely on board. The GR Super Sport Concept is the ideal vehicle to lead Toyota's and Gazoo Racing's GR lineup of performance vehicles.

La trovo più bella sia di Mercedes-AMG Project-One che della Aston Valkyrie, spero la facciano, ma in Toyota i concept belli ci mettono una vita a trasformarli in realtà, quelli orrendi li mandano i produzione in 5 minuti :mrgreen:.

anche per me è nettamente più bella delle altre due. L'unica cosa che stona è quel cazzillo lì sul davanti dalla vaga forma fallica.

Parecchio fica nonostante il frontale tipo Taunus 12M (omaggio alla quasi-concittadina?)

mancano anche gli specchietti, ma per le luci anteriori se guardi bene hanno già gli alloggiamenti.
