Toyota Gazoo Racing has confirmed the Supra GT4 race car will be available for teams to purchase in 2020.
Based on the GR Supra GT4 Racecar Concept, Toyota will use the car to strengthen its focus on customer motorsports.
The GT4 category is popular with private race teams around the world due to its low cost and ease of entry.
For those not following the Supra story, the car already participates in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in North America and, from 2020, is scheduled to compete in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan.
In order to develop the Supra GT4, Toyota Gazoo Racing has joined forces with three technical partners: Akrapovič, Pirelli and Ravenol. Akrapovič will cooperate on developing motorsport-specific exhaust systems, while Pirelli will collaborate on tyre development and Ravenol will provide lubricants.
Like the standard production version of the new Supra, the GT4 uses a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six matched to an automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels.
The Supra GT4 will be equipped with a roll cage, a natural fibre composite front splitter and rear wing, a motorsport specification fuel tank with fast refuelling system and an FIA-standard racing seat.
Details regarding the specifications of the GR Supra GT4, including its selling price, sales area and release date, are scheduled to be announced later this year.
