Toyota unveils Supra race vehicle concept

0 Comments 2018 Toyota Supra Racing Concept

Toyota has finally unveiled the new Supra at the Geneva Auto Show and the vehicle looks absolutely fantastic. The Supra will be jointly developed with BMW, who'll use the same platform for its upcoming BMW Z4.

The next-gen A90 Supra has yet to be confirmed for the Australian market and Aussies were cheated out of the last-generation A80 model in the 1990s, however local Toyota boss Sean Hanley is optimistic that the new coupe will come down under. This concept is a clear signal of our intent to bring one of our more iconic sportscars back to the circuit. Look no further than this concept to get an idea about the production sports car's design.

Full story to follow. The windshield and side windows are made of plastic.

Featuring red and black on white livery with a huge rear aerofin and a ready-for-racing look, the GR Supra Racing Concept is meant to show a modern take on Toyota's racing heritage from the late 1970s to the mid-90s.

With Hung Verdict, Congress, NPP Look for Ways to Form Meghalaya Govt
The J&K Government felicitated the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi for BJP's impressive performance in three north-eastern states. The BJP won 35 seats in Tripura's state legislature against the CPI (M)'s 16 seats, according to India's Election Commission.

Developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, the worldwide umbrella organization for Toyota's global sporting program, the GR Supra Racing Concept will also be featured in a new update to the Gran Turismo Sport video game in April. It has been created by Toyota's motorsports arm, Toyota Gazoo Racing (hence the GR part of the name), which has competed in the World Rally and World Endurance Championships and was behind the recent Toyota Yaris GRMN hot hatch.

The Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept measures 4,574mm (180 inches) in length, 2,048mm (80.6 in) in width, and 1,230mm (48.4 in) in height with a 2,470mm (97.2 in) wheelbase.

Few clues to the production car's interior are given by this concept, with the cabin stripped-out and fitted with a roll-cage, simplified dashboard, racecar steering wheel, fixed bucket seat and featureless door cards. When it's time to stop, Brembo brakes will bring the GR Supra Racing Concept to a halt in a hurry.

But we can say that the GR Supra Racing Concept will feature as a digital download for Gran Turismo Sport, giving PlayStation pilots a chance to drive the machine well before it goes on sale.
