    TOYOTA GAZOO Racing to commence sales of GR Supra GT4 in March 2020 to Europe, and expand sales to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October

    TOYOTA GAZOO Racing confirmed today that it will start the sales of GR Supra GT4*1, a race car for customer teams, starting from March 2020 to Europe. The sales area will expand to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing intends to strengthen its focus on customer motorsport*2 in order to enable motorsport-lovers around the world to participate in races.

    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 320 kW*3 (430 hp) 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 fiber composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350 kg*3. 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-piston front and four-piston rear, while running on Pirelli tires.

    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 fiber instrumental panel with a display and steering wheel specifically designed for 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 following; TMG for Europe, TRD U.S.A., INC. for North America, and TOYOTA CUSTOMIZING & DEVELOPMENT Co., Ltd. for Japan/Asia. Please contact the listed company for how to apply for purchase. The planned car price is 175,000€ (excluding tax, custom fee, logistic fee, etc.).

    *1 GT4 vehicles are sold to race participants and cannot be driven on public roads.
    *2 Private customer teams purchase race cars from manufacturers that are modified versions of production vehicles and enter them into races.
    *3 Subject to change depending on the SRO BOP (Balance of Performance).

    Yeah that’s not a road going car though.
    Think of this like the Porsche GT cup cars, or even spec Miatas.
    They can’t ever be made road legal when bought from factory as an off-road vehicle.

    They are cool though!

    Im interested in what they might do to it cosmetically, other than stripping the car of unnecessary things that might hold up its weight.

    I think @A70TTR said this was the test bed for the grmn. So maybe we will a similar engine in the production car at some point.

    Wow, so it's 194K after the conversion. That's unfortunate that there isn't a street version of the GT4.

    Assuming is just B58B30M1? Or O1? Maybe that's what all the VINs listed with the O1/B58D became?

    They are cool though![/QUOTE]
    They are turn key spec race cars. So you can drop one on the track and meets all current regulations and requirements!

    lots of manufacturers actually do this, they aren’t just usually advertised publicly and often have their own websites or dealership program.
    https://hpd.honda.com/Racing-Line
    Honda Is an excellent example as you also buy spec parts piecemeal.
    You’ll often see sites like these require some form of proof you’ll be racing it, because they may not normally sell crate engines publicly from factory and the pricing is usually very good.

    I can’t say I recall seeing Toyota do this here in North America, so maybe this is a start.
    I just came from japan and there is a milder version of factory support over there, but not in the same vein as a normal grassroots enthusiast would need.

    Lexus has had a program for a while ^

    You need a capable chassis for anyone to want it.

    Wondering if they would sell the big wing and diffusors seperately as street-legal 'aero-kit'.
    We need that downforce on the back tires :)

    £175,000 in the UK which is cheap compared to an equivalent Porsche or Aston but obviously it's a race car only.

    GRMN sounds interesting. I hope current mkV owners are offered first dibs. I wonder how they'll compare price/spec-wise to keeping and modifying a standard car?
