Pending its official presentation, scheduled for next January 11, the Toyota GAZOO Racing continues with the development of Toyota GR Super Sport with which he will compete in the World Endurance in 2021.

In absolute secrecy the Japanese team is accumulating kilometers with its new vehicle on different circuits in Europe. Although he has tried not to know images of his hypercar, the site dailysportscar.com had access to a photo during the tests that are being carried out in Portimao, Portugal.

Although the image is somewhat diffuse, it can be seen that the GR Super Sport has a decoration very similar to that of the Toyota TS050 HYBRID that consecrated the Argentine champion Jose Maria Lopez, to English Mike conway and to Japanese Kamui Kobayashi and that he won in the 2020 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the swiss Sebastien Buemi, also Japanese Kazuki Nakajima and the New Zealander Brendon Hartley.

One of the main unknowns of this project is knowing which powertrain it uses. Before the changes made in the technical regulations so that the WEC senior class is composed of vehicles LMH y LMDh, the idea of ​​the Japanese brand was to use a twin-turbo V6 internal combustion engine of 670 CV combined with a hybrid powertrain from 268 CV for the front axle.

It is worth remembering that by regulation, the Toyota GR Super Sport of the WEC must have a street version with a minimum production of 25 units.
