Toyota Hypercar On The Way and Will Cost Almost $3 million

Toyota’s new Le Mans Hypercar Class entry will spawn a road-legal car that will be fast and expensive.


  • The car was previewed as the Gazoo Racing GR Super Sport Concept.

  • Racing regulations require at least 20 homologated street-legal versions to be built.


Back at the 2018 edition of the Tokyo Auto Salon, Toyota and Gazoo Racing lifted the covers off the GR Super Sport Concept road car and we’ve been waiting ever since for more details.

Although nothing is yet 100% confirmed, as per carbuzz.com’s story,  sources have shared that the hypercar will indeed be built. Toyota’s newest entry in the Le Mans Hypercar Class, which will replace the current LMP1 car, is expected to race at the 24-Hour event as of September 19th, 2020.

As they’ve decided to go this route, the regulations require that Toyota and Gazoo Racing build at least 20 homologated street-legal versions of the racecar within a two-year period. Details on the nearly $3 million road car are almost non-existent however it is said that it might be powered by a “competition” twin-turbo hybrid V6 engine. For reference, the LeMans-winning Toyota LMP1-H TS050 Hybrid was powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.4-litre hybrid V6 good for 986 horsepower.

The production version of the GR Super Sport Concept should reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 2.5 seconds and hit 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds. Based on the two-year delay to road cars should arrive in 2022.
