Whether it is or not, the GR Super Sport's likely main task is to demonstrate Toyota's commitment to sporty cars that are fun to drive, while reasserting that the best way to develop such cars is via the racetrack. Billed by the company of having the latest in hybrid racing tech, Toyota claimed it combines performance and efficiency into one. It's called the GR Super Sport Concept, and it uses the petrol-electric powertrain of Toyota's Le Mans racecar.
The GR Supersport concept draws inspiration from Toyota's LMP1 and you can see the exterior which resembles the LMP1 vehicle. Meanwhile, aerodynamically-designed quarter panels ensure the concept cuts through the wind effortlessly. Even the taillights come in the same motif which makes it look sleek and futuristic.
A Closer Look At LG's OLED G8 & Nano Cell TVs - CES 2018
LG Electronics led overall OLED TV shipment volume in November, with a 31% month-on-month increase in shipments. During the 2017 CES, the company showed off a tech demo of the concept and its possible applications.
Despite its massive power output, the LMP1-inspired concept vehicle is built upon making cars more efficient. Toyota has also hinted that this concept uses a fair amount of the same components which means that we are essentially looking at a road-legal hybrid sports vehicle.
Toyota added that it will be some time before somebody gets behind the wheel of this sports auto, and if this is anything to go by, it certainly sounds promising. That's been combined with an electrification system of hybrid motors, the Toyota Hybrid System-Racing, or THS-R, developed by the Toyota Gazoo Racing team.
Flight of the Conchords Tour Special Heading to American TV
HBO , the network that aired the musical comedians' cult TV show a decade ago, has announced plans to broadcast a new TV special. Since then, McKenzie won an Oscar for writing songs for 2011's The Muppets , with Clement now co-starring on FX's Legion .
GAZOO Racing Company president Shigeki Tomoyama said the concept was the starting point for a broader plan to develop sports cars from race cars, which suggests this project could be separate from the Supra altogether. Powered by a lean-burn, 2.4-liter twin-turbo V6 engine backed by a hybrid system, total drivetrain horsepower is quoted as 986 horsepower, the same as in the company's endurance racer.
"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", Mr Tomoyama said.
