TOYOTA GAZOO Racing confirmed today that it will start the sales of GR Supra GT4*1, a race car for customer teams, starting from March 2020 to Europe. The sales area will expand to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing intends to strengthen its focus on customer motorsport*2 in order to enable motorsport-lovers around the world to participate in races.
The GR Supra GT4 is based on the GR Supra – TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s first-ever global model released earlier this year – and is developed and produced by TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH（»TMG»）.
A three-litre in-line six cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger has been tuned to 320kW*3（430hp）with a 7-speed sports automatic transmission with paddle shift and the mechanical limited slip differential driving the rear wheels. An Akrapovič exhaust system will be fitted and Ravenol will provide first-fill lubricants.
The front splitter and rear wing are made of natural fiber composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350kg*3. Following the specification of the GR Supra road car, the front suspension will be MacPherson strut, and rear suspension will be multilink with KW dampers at the front and rear.
The braking system is enhanced through the use of a dedicated brake calliper for racing, six-piston front and four-piston rear, while running on Pirelli tires.
