Toyota is gearing up for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, with its racing division – Toyota Gazoo Racing – announcing it will launch a new concept car there, and releasing a teaser image of it.
The Le Mans endurance race is scheduled for the weekend of June 10-11, and Autoblog.gr he will be in the pits and paddocks of the La Sarthe circuit to cover him.
The endurance race celebrates 100 years this year, with Toyota having a stand in the paddocks to display the GR Corolla test car, powered by an internal combustion engine that uses hydrogen.
However, more interest is caused by the concept that the Japanese company will bring, with Toyota Gazoo Racing not revealing the identity of the car, only saying that it will have technologies that have been developed through many challenges in motorsport.
Judging by the front bumper, the model may not be related to the GR Super Sport, whose development was reportedly halted after a model caught fire during testing almost two years ago.
To conclude, together with the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) and Mazda, the first Japanese car manufacturer to win Le Mans in 1991, TGR will host an exhibition themed to promote tourism in Japan and showcase technological development efforts to to achieve a carbon-free society in Japan.
