Toyota Gazoo Racing, the manufacturer’s racing organization, has announced the launch of the GT Supra GT4, a race car for customer teams based on the all-new Supra sports car.

The Supra GT4 comes a high-strength roll cage, a rapid refueling system, a rear-wheel drivetrain with an automatic transmission, various carbon fiber components, and a massive rear wing, among other cool race features. Despite all of these additions, you can expect it to weigh less than the road-ready counterpart.

To develop the Supra GT4, Toyota Gazoo Racing also partnered with Pirelli, Ravenol, and Akrapovič, which are helping to develop tires, provide lubricants, and create motorsport-specific exhaust systems, respectively.

Why Buy A Toyota: The cool new Supra isn’t the only reason

The GT4 racing category popular for its low cost and ease of entry, and GT4 cars are eligible to enter in a variety of races around the world, such as the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in the U.S., the GT4 European Series and VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring in Europe, and the Super Taikyu Series in Japan.

Despite the Supra having only just made its reappearance in the automotive world, this isn’t the first or even the second race-ready modern Supra. The car already competes in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and is scheduled to compete in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan next year.

Toyota has yet to announce pricing, release date details, or even how much power the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine will produce, but promised to share all of that and other relevant information later this year.
