Looking to set up a racing team, but have no interests in recent offerings in the motorsport world like the Ford GT Mk II? Well, then, may we interest you in the Toyota GR Supra GT4, a racing homologation of the much anticipated fifth-generation Supra, the GR Supra by Toyota GAZOO Racing introduced earlier this year. Developed by Toyota Motorsport GmbH, the Toyota GR Supra GT4 will be the race car that sees the new Supra dipping in the GT4 category.
GT4, if you don’t already know, is a popular category among private race teams due to its low cost and ease of entry. With the Toyota GR Supra GT4, your team will be eligible in a variety of races around the world, including the Super Taikyu Series in Japan, the GT4 European Series and the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring in Europe, and the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in the U.S. – just to name a few. Already, the GR Supra is competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in North America and is slated to race in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan next year, in 2020.
Highlights this race-prepped GR Supra includes a steel body with high-strength roll case, natural fiber composite front diffuser and rear wing, motorsport spec fuel tank with quick refueling system, and FIA-standard racing seat. The Toyota GR Supra GT4 Race Car is, of course, powered by the inline six, single twin-scroll turbocharged engine, but it being a motorsport variety, it will receive lubricants provide by Ravenol, and outfitted with motorsport-specific exhaust systems developed by Akrapovič along with tires specially developed by Pirelli.
Further details such as detail specifications, selling price, sales area and availability will be announced later this year. Keep going to steal a few more looks.
