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.
KPD officer shot in northeast Knoxville, suspect on the run
KPD reported that Officer Jay Williams, a 14-year veteran of the police force, tried to pull over Wilson on a speeding violation. A man suspected of shooting a Knoxville Police Department officer Thursday night in Northeast Knoxville is still on the run.
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.
Jio Vs Airtel Vs Vodafone
Users would get Rs. 103 of talk time, with call rates of 15 paisa per minute for BSNL to BSNL networks in this prepaid pack. Airtel also offers a Rs. 509 plan that was recently revised to offer 91 days validity with the same benefits.
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.
