Toyota Patent Application For Canopy Looks Like It’s For The GR Super Sports Hypercar

Toyota has applied for two patents for the GR Super Sports Hypercar, both in relation to the canopy.


  • Toyota GR Hypercar is under development and will cost almost $3 million.

  • The patent application looks to be for a large canopy that will serve as the way to get in and out of the car.


Toyota’s been working on the GR Super Sports Hypercar for a short while and we’ve already seen some track footage and gotten an idea about the price. Now it looks as though we’re finding out how owners will get in and out of the car.

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

There are in fact two patent applications for what we assume to be the GR Super Sports Hypercar, and Motor1.com seems to think so as well. The first of the patents is for the latches that will be located on either side of the car and explain how they will unlock to open the canopy.

While both patent drawings show a silhouette that is unmistakenly the Hypercar, the second patent is the one that demonstrates how the canopy and the side sills would work for getting in and out of the car.
