Following its headline-grabbing world debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept is now available on Gran Turismo Sport™, exclusively on PlayStation®4.
Every detail of the car has been meticulously modelled for the game, from the striking exterior to the competition-focused cockpit, giving gamers an immersive experience where they can take it to the limits on a wide variety of virtual, in-game racetracks.
The front-engine/rear-wheel drive concept car conforms to Grand Touring Endurance (GTE) sporting regulations, with its performance potential expressed in purposeful, circuit racing-derived styling cues and extensive use of state-of-the-art composite materials that ensure both rigidity and lightness.
The Gran Turismo series, developed by Polyphony Digital Inc and first launched 20 years ago, has become the staple for out-and-out racing game fans around the world. With an April in-game update, the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept will join an ever-growing list of Toyota road and race cars, past present and future. These include such legendary machines as the 2000GT sports car from the 1960s, the TS050 hybrid electric Le Mans challenger and the much-loved Supra A80 – the precursor to Toyota’s latest concept.
The GR Supra Racing Concept revives the great heritage of one of Toyota’s most famous sports cars. The Supra name evokes power, performance and handling that defined a succession of world-class cars for a quarter of a century. As a thoroughbred sports car, it built a reputation both as a formidable performer on the road and as an all- conquering machine on the racetrack, dominating Japan’s top-level GT racing series and earning legions of fans.
The concept’s debut was the clearest indication yet of Toyota’s ambition to bring back one of the company’s most legendary sports cars, currently under development and expected for launch soon, as confirmed at the Geneva motor show by Dr Johan van Zyl, Toyota Motor Europe President and CEO.
