New 2019 Toyota GR Supra Super GT Concept teased

Toyota-Gazoo Racing has confirmed a motorsports version of its new Supra will make an appearance at Tokyo Auto Salon 2019

Toyota has released a teaser image intended to whet the appetite for a new Supra based concept car, which will be revealed at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January.

Called the Supra Super GT Concept, the shady teaser image suggests that it’ll be a fresh racing variant of the Supra, with what looks like a Toyota-Gazoo Racing livery, a lairy bodykit with functional aero and a huge Super GT wing.

As such, we expect the new Supra Super GT Concept will be similar in execution to the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept, which made its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. However, as the name suggests, it’ll be designed with Japanese Super GT racing class rules in mind.

We expect other similarities to carry over from the 2018 GR Racing Concept, including composite front and rear bumpers, bonnet, diffuser, splitter and wing, as well as plexiglass windows to save weight. The GR’s BBS alloys, Brembo Brakes and reduced ride height will also likely feature on the new Super GT.

The event’s theme circles around Toyota’s highlights and challenges in motorsport. As such, the Supra Super GT Concept will appear on the company’s stand alongside its Yaris WRC car, its Le Mans-winning World Endurance TS050 car, and a historic 1988 MA70 Supra, which raced in the Group A class of the Japanese Touring Car Championship.
