Featured Cars Introduction
Toyota GR Supra Race Car '19
The Supra returned after a 17-year hiatus, with this racing version competing at the Nürburgring in 2019.
After 17 long years, the beloved Supra made its return, first as the race-ready GR Supra. Toyota's flagship sports car was co-developed with BMW, borrowing among other things the BMW Z4's superb inline-6 engine.
The 2-seat sports car made its first appearance at the 2018 Nürburgring 24 hour race a year before its release along with the slogan: To make even better cars. It entered the SP8T class in 2019 after its release.
With Masahiro Sasaki, Uwe Kleen, Herwig Daenens, and Morizo at the wheel, the GR Supra started the final race at the Ring from 99th place, but steadily made its way up the field as the drivers avoided a number of accidents at the beginning of the race. Eight hours into the contest, the car was involved in a slight crash, but fortunately for Toyota, damage was minimal and the car went on to finish in a respectable 41st place overall, and 3rd in its class.
Its outing proved that the GR Supra was a true sports car with a genuine race car heart.
TOYOTA 86 Gr.4
This is a Gran Turismo original version of the Toyota 86 FR sports car modified for Gr.4.
The FT-86 Concept was introduced in 2009 to the delight of Japanese sports car enthusiasts everywhere. The exciting front-engine/rear-drive sports car was developed by a collaborative effort between Toyota and Subaru, and it rekindled the spirit of the legendary Toyota AE86. In 2011, the production version of the FT-86 made its long-awaited debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The "FT" (Future Toyota) designation was dropped, going simply by the name Toyota 86. The new-generation "Hachi-Roku" (86 in Japanese) featured a profile similar to that of the FT-86 II Concept shown at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The sleek body adopted Toyota's "Aero Handling" concept, which was the company's advanced aerodynamic philosophy.
Under the hood was a naturally-aspirated 1998cc DOHC flat-4, or "boxer" engine, mounted aft of the front axle. It produced an even 197.2 HP at 7,000 rpm and 151.2 ft-lb of torque at 6,600 rpm. The power was transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Its ideal 53:47 front/rear weight distribution allowed for true sports car handling, with some models getting a limited-slip differential for even more precise cornering. Another reason for the car's amazing agility was because its center of gravity was located in the same place as many exotic supercars, sitting only 18.1 inches off the ground. The car was also lightweight, tipping the scales at 2,712 lbs.
Tuning firms, such as Modelista and TRD, offered plenty of customization for the 86, and they showed us that it made for a excellent starting point to build a race car. In sum, the 86 was a lightweight sports car that truly catered to the young car enthusiast of its day.
*This model was specially tuned to meet Gr.4 regulations by Gran Turismo.
