Yes, we hear you – there’s been enough news of the Toyota Supra already, and still we have yet to see the real thing. While Toyota continues to drop teaser after teaser of the new sports car ahead of its highly anticipated Detroit unveiling, over at the ongoing Tokyo Auto Salon, the company has revealed the GR Supra Super GT Concept as yet another preview of the road car.

But before you scoff at the idea of Toyota putting out two “racing” show cars (including last year’s GR Supra Racing Concept) even before the real thing is out, this one at least signals its intentions of bringing the Supra name back to the Super GT race series in 2020, replacing the Lexus LC. As with all the GT500 cars in the championship, the Super GT is wide and low to the ground, all big intakes, flics and massive wings.

The front of the car is dominated by a huge full-width air inlet and sizeable canards that sit just under the Supra’s F1-inspired nose, while the bonnet features deep air canals. The broad wheel arches hide multi-spoke centre-lock wheels shod with Bridgestone Potenza slicks, and the tall side sills hold an assortment of aerodynamic addenda. The rear diffuser and obligatory tea tray wing complete the race-ready look.

No mechanical details have been released, but it certainly won’t be using the road car’s 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six engine. That’s because the GT500 formula has been running a 2.0 litre turbo four-cylinder since 2014, as part of a Class One convergence with the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM).
