Toyota GR GT3 Concept

Let’s talk about the Toyota GR GT3 Concept first. Toyota’s bespoke racing concept is not for the light-hearted and will pack a serious punch not only on the track, but also on the road, as it will also spawn a street-legal version in the near future that will sits on the Toyota Supra in the company’s line-up.

Toyota hasn’t revealed a timeline for its debut and won’t see it in the flesh for the foreseeable future.

Just like the Porsche 911 GT3, the Mercedes-AMG GT, the Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT3 and even the Bentley Continental GT3. All of these were first ordered for the roads and then tuned for the race track, and that’s exactly what the company will do with the GR GT3 Concept. The only catch is that Toyota hasn’t revealed a timeline for its debut and won’t see it in the flesh for the foreseeable future.

Headlining the update is a stiffer suspension setup, a 20kg weight loss, a 10mm increase in width for improved aerodynamics, and a 10mm drop in height, which results in a huge reduction in body roll when cornering. In addition, it uses a mechanical LSD, a close ratio gear transmission and a low end gear set, which has been improved through repeated “breaks and repairs”.
