Toyota unveils the GR Supra Racing concept in Geneva

Toyota unveils the GR Supra Racing concept in Geneva

Today, Toyota previewed the new Supra with the GR Supra Racing Concept that's debuting at the Geneva Motor Show. BMW will unveil its new model in a few months.

Toyota says the GR Supra Racing Concept demonstrates its commitment to bringing the Supra back to the market.

You might think it unusual that Toyota would use a motorsports vehicle to shape its road cars, but that is actually what Kiichiro Toyoda believes in.

The GR Supra Racing Concept is also to be featured in an update of the Gran Turismo Sport video game scheduled for release in April.

Hanley wouldn't be drawn on pricing, but said that the car's arrival in Australia wouldn't necessarily follow the same bargain-pricing strategy of the 86, which launched in 2012 with a completely unexpected sub-$30K pricetag. I wasn't given the mission to create a Supra, I was told to discuss possible developments with BMW.

The roadgoing Supra is expected to go on sale in South Africa in the first half of next year. (Plus, there's. lots of other awesome cars there.) And besides, combined with the not-so-spy shots of the road-going version that have been spotted all over the world, it's enough to get a rough idea of what the new Supra will look like. The Supra was originally a sport-tuned Celica model before becoming its own rear-wheel drive sports auto in three successive generations. "It's fun on the road as well as the race track, the autobahn and the English countryside".

Back to the Racing Concept, Toyota didn't lay out a bunch of stats to fawn over, unfortunately. Likewise, the interior is fitted with an OMP competition set, racing dash, quick release steering, roll cage, fire extinguisher and carbon fiber door panels. "Being [price] competitive is important, but it will play a very different role to a volume vehicle". At the rear, we find a massive wing, the Supra's trademark cosmetic add-on.

The number 90 on the car's flanks is a historic reference to the Supra's code name, and an important visual cue announcing the fifth-generation model. Previous generations of the Supra were the A40, A60, A70, and A80.
