Toyota Gazoo Racing To Commence Sales Of GR Supra GT4 Race Car

29 October 2019

Toyota Gazoo Racing will start sales of the GR Supra GT4 race car to customer teams in March 2020. The new competition model will initially be offered in Europe, followed by North America in August and Japan/Asia in October next year, strengthening the company’s focus on customer motorsport1.

The GR Supra GT4 is based on the road-going GR Supra, Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first global model, released earlier this year. It is developed and produced by Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG).

The three-litre in-line six-cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger has been tuned to 430bhp/320kW2 and is matched to a seven-speed sports automatic transmission with paddle shifts and a mechanical limited-slip differential. The performance elements include an Akrapovič exhaust system, and first-fill lubricants are supplied by Ravenol.

The car’s front splitter and rear wing are made of a natural fibre composite, contributing to an overall vehicle weight of 1,350kg2. Following the specification of the GR Supra road car, the suspension system features front MacPherson struts and a multilink arrangement at the rear. Adjustable KW performance dampers are used both front and rear.

The braking system is uprated with dedicated Brembo racing callipers – six-pot at the front and four-pot at the rear – and the OZ five-hole 11×18-inch wheels are shod with 305/660 Pirelli tyres.

Safety provisions include a high-strength roll cage for the lightweight steel body and an FIA-standard racing seat with six-point harness. The interior is fitted with a carbon fibre instrument panel with a display and steering wheel designed specifically for GT4 competition.

The contact companies for regional sales and customer support, including spare parts and access to engineers, are: TMG for Europe; TRD USA for North America; and Toyota Customizing and Development for Japan/Asia. The planned price of the GR Supra GT4 is €175,000, excluding any taxes, customs fees and logistics and other costs (approx. £151,000).
