Toyota told about its serial hypercarAugust 10, 2018
Company Toyota will release a serial version of the prototype of a supercar called GR Super Sport. As told in an interview with Motoring representative of the Australian unit of the brand Orlando Rodriguez, the price of the novelty “will be at the level of a hypercar.” In the edition itself it is assumed that the cost of the novelty is likely to be about $ 1 million.
“We do not even know yet when these cars will appear. Also I can not answer, on what [markets the novelty will be fixed, “the top manager explained.
The exact dates of the premiere of the car are not yet reported. According to Motor1, this will happen in the next few years. The technical characteristics of the serial version of GR Super Sport are kept secret. The concept was equipped with a hybrid power plant, which includes a 2.4-liter V6 gasoline engine. The total power of the prototype is 1000 horsepower.
The concept of the GR Super Sport was developed in conjunction with the racing team of Toyota Gazoo Racing. The design of the car resembles the prototype Toyota TS050 Hybrid, with which the Japanese company performs in the endurance race WEC in the highest category LMP1. The car is equipped with 18-inch wheel disks, a large wing, a sports exhaust system with two nozzles and cameras instead of side mirrors, images from which are broadcasted to a special display in the cabin.
Earlier, Toyota released a concept car GR HV with a body type targa. A number of stylistic elements were also borrowed from the sport prototype TS050 Hybrid. One of the main distinguishing features were unusual headlights with triple sections of head light.
