THE TOYOTA GR SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSC IS ALMOST HERE! Woohoo! Heck yeah! After years and years of waiting...wait, what?
What is this Toyota GR SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSC or SSC whatever?
*le gasp* You don't know about the GR SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSC? Alrighty then, gather round kids, cause this is gonna be a long story. Where'd my marshmallow go...found it!
Once upon a 2018, the Toyota TS050 Hybrid race car, which is a Le Mans Hypercar fyi, won the 2018 Le Mans. But, wait, it doesn't end there- it also won the 2019 Le Mans. The GR Super Sport is based on the aforementioned TS050 Hybrid race car and is meant to take racing engineering from the track to the road. Toyota has been teasing the GR Super Sport hypercar for a while now, first showing a concept in 2018 and teasing it in the first video in 2019. The hook for this concept was that Toyota would engineer the car for the new LMH hypercar category, the new premier class for endurance racing, as well as on-road use. Back in 2018, Toyota GR President Shigeki Tomoyama said Toyota would "develop sports cars from active race cars." Interesting, ikr!
Just looook at it!
So, as I was saying, after years and years (two years but whatever) of waiting, the production version of the SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSC is gonna debut on 15 January! WHICH IS ALSO THE DAY WANDAVISION IS DEBUTING! Just putting it out there...
The Toyota GR Super Sport produces 671 bhp through a hybrid powertrain with power going to both axles. The racer weighs 1,030 kilograms/2,271 pounds and rides on Michelin tyres. Here's the teaser:
