980-HP Toyota Concept Could Inspire Future Supercar

Toyota's performance sub-brand, Gazoo Racing, is a matter of months old. Check out this machine. We already know that Toyota's Gazoo performance division is plotting a new halo sports vehicle as a successor to the iconic Supra, so it seems possible that it could adopt the Super Sport Concept's hybrid powertrain. Just unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon, it incorporates hybrid technology honed through participation in the FIA WEC - Toyota says it's composed of mostly the same main parts as the TS050 Hybrid race vehicle. Beneath the beautifully flowing and original form are a V6 twin turbocharger and a Toyota Hybrid System-Racing (THS-R) powertrain, which have been honed through actual racing. Acceleration figures haven't been mentioned but as you can imagine, it's not going to be slow.

Right before the holidays past year, Toyota released a teaser image of its upcoming GR Super Sport Concept. Say hello, then, to the GR Super Sport Concept, a sibling to the TS050 that now competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), and certainly not your parents' Camry. We do have some hopes - Toyota president Akio Toyoda has given hints the company will do a production hybrid supercar in the future. 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.

"Rather than developing production cars into sports cars, we aim to work out how to incorporate the know-how developed through races and rallies into production cars". "As the industry approaches times of tremendous change, I am strongly determined to make sure that cars will be fun for the next 100 years". Despite the differences between the two concept models, both are electrified vehicles equipped with the latest IT technologies and are set to become safe and environmentally friendly connected cars.
