Toyota Gazoo Racing Bringing Supra to 24 Hours of Nürburgring
Toyota Gazoo Racing are bringing not one but two cars to compete at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring Endurance Race. Not only will there be a Lexus LC (as in 2018), but a Toyota GR Supra as well! This just 3 years after Toyota Gazoo Racing’s return to the ring.
This will be the GR Supra’s first entry in this particular race, but it has seen action on the Nürburgring last year.
About the Toyota GR Supra
The all-new 2020 GR Supra is no mere sports car—it’s our purest expression of performance, designed to allow driver, car and road to become one. Beautifully balanced, and even more beautiful to look at, the GR Supra is set to define the next generation of performance.
With its sensuous bodywork, athletic stance and expressive, jewel-like LED headlights, the 2020 GR Supra is a stunning work of art. But it’s the science behind the design that makes this car a true masterpiece. Up front, its wide grille is designed to channel cool air directly to the turbocharged engine, helping optimize performance. Up top, its “double-bubble” roof adds space inside while reducing aerodynamic drag outside. And its flared rear spoiler does more than make a dramatic statement—it helps reduce body lift and helps keep Supra planted when running at speed.
Our approach to designing the GR Supra was simple: We wanted to create the best driver’s car, period. Under the hood, a 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline six redefines responsiveness, letting drivers control the throttle with millimeter precision. We moved this engine as far back, and as low, as possible—optimizing the center of gravity for a 50:50 front/rear weight distribution. A rigid chassis, adaptive suspension and Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport tires help ensure that this Supra drives as good as it looks. And with its active differential and Brembo® 40 front brakes, this car is equipped to give its driver the ultimate in control.
