Toyota has released a few pictures of its new concept car called the GT Super Sport. Just like any other concept, it looks astonishing.

Speaking about the GR Super Sport, Shigeki Tomoyama President, Gazoo Racing Company said, “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 amid various restrictions, and this is how competing contributes to Toyota Gazoo Racing’s efforts toward making ever-better cars. Thus, this is the starting point for Toyota’s completely new challenge to develop sports cars from active race cars. Although it will be some time before you all have the opportunity to get behind the wheel, I hope that the GR Super Sport Concept will give you a taste of what we aim to achieve with our next-generation sports cars.”

It’s being anticipated that powering the GR Super Sport Concept would be a 2.4-litre, twin-turbo, V6 engine. Most likely, it’s going to be a hybrid unit which would churn out a max power of 986bhp! That’s quite a bunch.

A few features that we can spot in the pictures include 18-inch wheels which are said to have a tyre profile of 330/710 R18. The GR Super Sport Concept has taken inspiration from Toyota’s LMP1.

No word about when would this concept turn into a real car, if it does. However, Toyota says that the GR Super Sport will be a road legal race car which people can actually use on public roads.
