Toyota Teases Its Street-Legal 986HP GR Super Sport Hybrid Supercar

Toyota isn’t widely known for producing cutting-edge supercars, though the Japanese marque is no stranger to ultra-high-performance vehicles, from the relaunched Supra to the 550hp+ LFA. And Toyota is now finally giving the public a glimpse of its highly-anticipated forthcoming road-legal supercar model known as the GR Super Sport.

Unveiled at the 88th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GR SS is based on Toyota’s two-time Le Mans-winning TS050 HYBRID race car. When Toyota first announced its plans to produce the GR SS back in 2018, the manufacturer stated the car would be powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 2.4L V6 that’s hybrid assisted and good for putting down almost 1,000hp (986 to be exact). Despite its street-legal status, the GR SS takes ample visual inspiration from the company’s endurance racer, with slippery, low-drag coefficient bodywork supplemented via a suite of lips, wings, and other aero bits, and a bubble-style cockpit. Pricing, final specs, and production numbers have yet to be revealed, though Toyota will presumably build at least 20 units, as per FIA WEC homologation rules.
