Toyota has revealed that it is developing its GR Super Sport race car to a consumer market, making the car legal for public roads.

Announced during the 86th Annual 24 Hours of Le Mans, the hypercar will boast 1,000 horsepower and be based on the Toyota LMP1 concept racer that embraces hybrid engine technology in the midst of its competitors’ high-tech offerings like the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and LaFerrari. Under the hood will be a 2.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine combined with a powerful electric drive system. Toyota Gazoo Racing lead Shigeki Tomoyama made a statement on its development:

“As the automotive industry is approaching an era of big changes, we will continue our passion for making cars that are truly exciting. No matter how electronics and digital technology will continue to transform vehicles, we will make sure that our cars will not become just another commodity.”

The GR Super Sport is expected to release shortly after Toyota’s other recent exciting news of the Supra, also developed by Gazoo Racing. Watch the promotional video below and stay tuned for more details on the GR Super Sport’s arrival.

They're currently dominating Le Mans at the moment. Of course, they also have absolutely no competition either so.....

Its the gt one road car which is based off their LM prototype le mans gt1 car. The homologation regulations at the time said there needed to be at least 2 road going production models. So thats all they built. :rofl: But they built it! It was pretty much identical to the race car aside from a few minor changes.

I am a big fan of the LFA, might not be supercar material though. But the absolute sexiest V10 exhaust ever.
