Toyota has announced that they will be revealing their new Toyota GR Supra GT4 Concept at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
The Toyota GR Supra GT4 Concept will come with a 3.0-litre straight-six-cylinder petrol engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger, plus an automatic transmission
The road-going Toyota GR Supra has essential qualities that make it an attractive proposition for GT4 racing, with its perfectly balanced chassis, two-seater cabin, highly rigid and lightweight body, rear-wheel drive and very low centre of gravity. The combination of a short wheelbase and wide track gives it an ideal 1.55 ‘golden ratio’ for excellent stability and agility, which are valuable assets in a series where the regulations use a balance of performance calculation (adjusting weight according to engine power) to ensure even competition across the field.
The concept model, developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, is instantly recognisable as a Supra and maintains the road car’s low, muscular shape, but with increased length and lowered height. A specially-designed front diffuser and rear wing have been added to the GR Supra GT4 Concept to improve airflow around the chassis, reducing drag and optimising downforce. Both items are constructed using composites made from natural fibres such as hemp and flax, replacing the traditional carbon fibre in order to reduce the impact on the environment. The concept is fitted with five-hole OZ 11 x 18-inch racing wheels.
