2020 Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept

The GR Supra Racing Concept Roars Back To Las Vegas

The GAZOO Racing-Built Machine Returns to Support the Release of the All-New 2020 GR Supra

PLANO, Texas (November 5, 2019) – The GR Supra Racing Concept is back at SEMA for an encore appearance in Toyota's display at the 2019 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.

'At the 2018 SEMA Show, the GR Supra Racing Concept offered a good hint of what we had in the pipeline. Now we can appreciate its competition body lines alongside the production 2020 GR Supras,' said Steve Appelbaum, national engagement marketing manager for Toyota Motor North America.

2020 Toyota GR Supra Racing ConceptThe Racing Concept's pure front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration makes use of advanced lightweight materials in its construction. Created by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, the concept exudes high-performance qualities intrinsic to Toyota's flagship sportscar. The large '90' number plate on its doors refers to the GR Supra's chassis code, A90, and was a visual clue that this concept heralds the return of the fifth generation Supra.

The Racing Concept features the aerodynamic traits expected in a race car. Optimized to generate downforce, the aero package includes a carbon-fiber splitter, canards, vented wide fenders, side skirts, a carbon-fiber diffuser, and a carbon-fiber wing with swan-neck stays.

The aerodynamics package keeps the pressure on the Michelin racing slicks mounted to lightweight BBS center-lock wheels to provide glue-like adhesion with the tarmac. Brembo forged-monobloc calipers with slotted rotors reign in the speed.


Inside the cabin, a race-focused cockpit forms around the OMP racing seat. A fortified latticework of chromoly steel adds strength and rigidity to the chassis. A carbon-fiber steering wheel includes a digital display along with vehicle controls.

Its development and intended purpose embodies the beliefs of Kiichiro Toyoda, the founder of the Toyota Motor Corporation. He felt that participation in motorsports presents challenges that can directly contribute to the development of better cars, while at the same time generating interest and excitement among motoring fans.
