Toyota to Construct Futuristic Road-Going Hybrid Hypercar with Connections to Le Mans Muscle Vehicle

Toyota recently revealed its GR Super Sport Concept. This took place on the occasion of the unveiling of the 86th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. These are actually a preview of more things which are yet to come.

The hybrid hypercar will arrive within a 3 years time span. The GR Super Sport Concept was introduced to the rest of the world for the first time at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon. This was way back in January of this year.

However, now Toyota has declared that the future hypercar will be a work in progress and that it will feature hybrid technology. This high tech car will have parts and pieces inspired from the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The race is definitely on. With the inclusion of leading-edge hybrid electric setups and the best fuel economy technology, the car will have everything anyone can dream of in a single package. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine, it is furthermore electrified in a special manner.

This heady mix delivers an output of 1000 hp. In this, it is a dead-ringer for the TS050 Hybrid LMP1 Race Car. Time alone will be the ultimate arbiter of how this hypercar of the future will fare in the world of cutthroat competition.

Such competition includes rounds engaged in at the World Endurance Championship. This is a very exacting motorsports series. Only the world’s leading vehicles get to race at the event.

As the future beckons with its excitement and exhilaration, new versions of older vehicles will grace the highways and byways of the world’s routes. Cars will not just be commodities anymore but entire extensions of the masculine ego that define style and sophistication in a superb way.
