Remember how excruciatingly slowly Toyota unveiled the new Supra? We definitely do. And it seems, so do the kids over at Toyota. The only difference is that they must have enjoyed every second, because it does appear that they’re intent on keeping the hype train at full steam for a while yet.
But if they’re going to do it by making slivers of pure excellence like this Supra GT4 concept, consider us well and truly on board for the foreseeable future.
Toyota’s official line is that what you see here “is a design and engineering study that explores how the Supra sports car might be developed as a competitive machine for international GT4 racing.”
Yes, Toyota’s referring to this as a concept at this stage, but we’re at the eye-narrowing stage on that one – there’s motorsport-spec fuel cells, diffs and driveshafts, as well as race-ready springs, shocks and anti-roll bars. These are not things that you slap on any old concept unless you’re ready to put Tip-Ex on the ‘concept’ bit and go racing.
