The engine (s) that will power the ToyotaGazoo Racing remains a matter of hot debate, as despite having finally unveiled the long-awaited concept, Toyota has yet to reveal any details about its powertrain. The windows are made from plastic to save weight.
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.
The number 90 on the car's flanks is a historic reference to the Supra's code name, and an important visual cue announcing the fifth-generation model.
Inside the concept features a racing dashboard and OMP driver's seat and safety harness.
The GR in the concept's name stands for Toyota Gazoo Racing, the team behind the Japanese automaker's recent efforts in Le Mans and the World Rally Championship. This concept is a clear signal of our intent to bring one of our more iconic sportscars back to the circuit.
The concept's chassis features lowered front and rear suspension that uses original equipment components (OE), with everything resting on BBS racing wheels with center-nut attachment fitted with Michelin racing tires.
Most of the details on the two-seat, rear-wheel-drive vehicle are still under wraps, but Toyota's European R&D head Gerald Killmans confirmed to Top Gear that that it will be powered by a returned version of a BMW inline-6 cylinder motor, because that engine configuration is a hallmark of the Supra and Toyota doesn't have one available.
Toyota has also gone to the trouble of fitting full competition safety gear (cage/fire extinguisher/pedal box etc) which to us is a thinly veiled assersion that we'll see this auto competing in the near future. It is rear-wheel drive, and the firm says "advanced lightweight materials" have been used in its construction, particularly on the large rear wing, front and rear bumpers and diffusers, and side skirts. When it's time to stop, Brembo brakes will bring the GR Supra Racing Concept to a halt in a hurry. The doors are lined with carbon fibre panels and it gets a racing display instead of the usual instrument clusters.
Competition safety requirements are met by a full roll cage and fire extinguishers. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing has since become the worldwide umbrella organization for Toyota's global sporting program.
