Toyota presents the GR Super Sport concept at Tokyo Auto Salon 2018

In the same way, Toyota is also expected to be serious and eventually make the GR Super Sport see the light of production despite it being just a concept for now. In fact, it looks like Toyota simply took its Le Mans competitor and added everything required to homologate it for the road!

Like the race auto it's inspired by, the Super Sport Concept is powered by a twin-turbo 2.4-liter V6 engine and a Toyota-Hybrid System-Racing powertrain producing a combined output of 986 horsepower.

Toyota Gazoo Racing aims to refine its cars and people toward the goal of making ever-better cars through participation in motorsport activities, including global and national races and rallies. However, Toyota says it does give us a taste of what the company aims to achieve with its next-generation sports cars.

The vehicle is powered by a 2.4-liter, twin-turbo, direct injection V-6 engine that produces power in tandem with the THS-R hybrid system, derived from the company's World Endurance Championship entry, the TS050 Hybrid. It was developed by Toyota's Gazoo Racing division, and draws plenty of inspiration from the TS050 Hybrid World Endurance Championship race auto.

The GR Super Sport Concept is a showcase for what the recently developed Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nurburgring (GRMN) division is capable of.

Jones said he practices each week as though his role will go beyond special teams. "I'm not really looking at it like that". It's a big task to go out and win a playoff game and play against a good team, divisional round.

"If the e-Palette Concept is the next generation of the horse-drawn carriage, the GR Super Sport Concept would be the polar opposite as the next-generation racehorse".

Toyota's performance sub-brand, Gazoo Racing, is a matter of months old.

Toyota's return to world rallying saw it finish third in the manufacturer championship past year, with Latvala fourth in the drivers' standings. The rest of the vehicle is "composed of mostly the same main parts" as well, as Toyota admits.

Team principal Tommi Mäkinen said the team is ready to build on its pleasing first season.
