A more powerful version of the Japanese sports coupe will take part in the 2020 GT GT racing season in the GT300 class. The prototype of the novelty was captured during the track tests.

Toyota Supra is preparing to take part in the Japanese Super GT racing series in the GT300 class. This video demonstrates testing a sports coupe on a race track before the start of racing in the 2020 season, and I must say that the car shows itself very, very well.

Unlike some cars participating in Super GT races in the GT300 class, Toyota specifically builds this version of the Supra coupe for this series, rather than using the GT3 specification model. The competition rules stipulate that the car must have dimensions similar to the regular version of the model, the automaker can make changes to the aerodynamics, design of the gearbox and suspension of the car. According to the Daily Sports Car, a powerful V8 engine is under the hood of the Japanese novelty.

Indeed, this Supra looks like a much more “evil” version of the usual model. The car received wider wings, a huge wing and a huge diffuser under the body.

In addition to the Supra GT300-spec version, Toyota will also have a more powerful coupe version that can take part in the more demanding GT500 class. It is known that such a version of the model will also be ready to participate in races next year. This performance of the car will compete with the updated Nissan GT-R and Honda NSX front-engine.

 Toyota will also have a variation of the racing coupe for customers who want to race. The GT4 version of the car will go on sale in Europe in March 2020. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 429 horsepower (650 Nm), which works with a seven-speed gearbox. Brembo adjustable shock absorbers and brakes complete the kit.
