TOYOTA GR SUPRA RACING CONCEPT DEBUTS ON GRAN TURISMO SPORT
On Jun 13 2018 06:39:26
The Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept - which grabbed headlines with its world premiere at last month's Geneva Motor Show - is now available on Gran Turismo Sport™ exclusively on PlayStation®4.
The visually stunning front-engine rear-wheel-drive Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept conforms to Grand Touring Endurance regulations. Its purposeful circuit racing-derived design cues make extensive use of state-of-the-art composite materials to ensure both rigidity and lightness. Every minute detail of the concept car was meticulously modelled for the game, from the striking exterior to the competition-focused cockpit. It provides gamers with an unrivalled immersive experience to push the concept car to the limits on a wide variety of virtual in-game racetracks.
Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc. and first launched 20 years ago, the Gran Turismo series has become the staple for out-and-out racing game fans around the world. With the April in-game update, the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept will join an ever-growing list of Toyota road and race cars, including the legendary Toyota 2000GT, the 24 Hours of Le Mans Toyota TS050 Hybrid and the much-loved Toyota Supra A80 - precursor to Toyota's latest concept. The GR Supra Racing Concept revives the great heritage of one of Toyota's most famous sports cars.
The Supra name evokes power, performance and handling that defined a succession of world-class cars for a quarter of a century. As a thoroughbred sports car, the Toyota Supra built a reputation both as a formidable performer on road and track, dominating Japan's top-level GT racing series and earning legions of fans. With the concept's debut last month, it marked the clearest indication yet of Toyota's ambition to bring back one of the company's most legendary sports cars, which is currently under development and is slated for launch soon.
