On March 6, 2018, at the Geneva Motor Show, Toyota unveiled the GR Supra Racing Concept. Despite a 16 year gap since the production of a new Supra, the speedster has attracted a new generation of followers thanks to the popular video game Gran Turismo® and the movie franchise The Fast and the Furious.
Created by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (the international umbrella organization for Toyota’s global sporting program), the GR Supra Racing Concept is a compact, two-door car, with front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration. The large “90” race number on its doors is a historical reference to Supra’s codename and a big visual clue to the fact that this concept heralds Supra’s return in a fifth generation.
