Toyota’s motorsport expertise will benefit a production model that was previewed by the GR Super Sport Concept.
But how much is that? Well, if we were to give credit to Motoring, who asked the brand’s Australia spokesman, Orlando Rodriguez, about it, it could top AUD $1 million, or about USD $740,000 at current exchange rates.
“It’s probably at that hypercar sort of level. Pricing? It’s going to be at that level”, said Rodriguez, who wasn’t keen on releasing more information on the impressive project. “We don’t even know when cars will be available, what markets they will go to and where they will be road registerable and where they won’t”, he added.
The Toyota GR Super Sport Concept that offered a glimpse into the production model debuted at the beginning of the year, at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
It has a lot of components found on the Japanese automaker’s WEC racer, the TS050 Hybrid, and is powered by a twin-turbo 2.4-liter V6 engine combined with a THS-R (Toyota Hybrid System – Racing) with multiple electric motors.
Toyota claims that it has a combined output of 1,000PS (986hp / 735kW), so the production model could offer about the same, give or take.
