GR Supra GT4 is ready for customers, coming to Europe in spring 2020
Toyota Gazoo Racing confirmed today that it will start the sale of its GR Supra GT4 race car for customer teams in March 2020. The car will be offered first in Europe, then in North America in August, and finally in Japan/Asia in October 2020.
The GR Supra GT4 is based on the GR Supra, Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first-ever global model released earlier this year and is developed and produced by Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG).
A three-litre in-line six-cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger has been tuned to 320kW (430hp) with a 7-speed sports automatic transmission with paddle shift and the mechanical limited-slip differential driving the rear wheels. An Akrapovič exhaust system will be fitted and Ravenol will provide first-fill lubricants.
The front splitter and rear wing are made of natural fibre composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350kg. Following the specification of the GR Supra road car, the front suspension will be MacPherson strut, and rear suspension will be multilink with KW dampers at the front and rear. The braking system is enhanced through the use of a dedicated brake calliper for racing, six-pot for the front and four-pot for rear, while the car will use Pirelli tyres.
Safety will be a priority and the GR Supra GT4 will be installed with a high-strength roll cage on the lightweight steel body, and an FIA-standard racing seat with six-point harness. The interior will feature a carbon fibre instrumental panel with a display and steering wheel specifically designed for the GT4 competition.
The contact company for each region of the GT4 vehicle sales and customer support (including sales for spare parts and engineer support) will be the followingTMG for Europe, TRD U.S.A Inc. for North America, and Toyota Customizing &Development Co. Ltd. for Japan/Asia. The planned car price is 175,000€ (excluding tax, custom fee, logistic fee, etc).
