You Can Now Drive the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept in Gran Turismo Sport

  You Can Now Drive the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept in Gran Turismo Sport The production-ready real thing will drop in early 2019.While the production-ready Toyota Supra is still almost a year away, you can now take the GR Racing Concept version for a spin...in Gran Turismo Sport. Yes, as promised when the car was revealed in Geneva last month, the next-generation Supra's race car twin is now playable in PlayStation's flagship racing game. Should tide hardcore Supra fans over until the real car gets its debut sometime early 2019.

Toyota said in March that the new Supra would debut in the first half of 2019. Strangely, Toyota is now hinting at some kind of Supra reveal at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that takes place later this month. Toyota revealed the news on Twitter along with an image of a camouflaged car.

Toyota said in March that the new Supra would debut in the first half of 2019. Strangely, Toyota is now hinting at some kind of Supra reveal at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that takes place later this month.

Toyota revealed the news on Twitter along with an image of a camouflaged car. It's unclear whether Toyota will reveal the production Supra in all its glory, or whether we'll simply see a prototype or covered car.

A racing version of the Toyota Supra made its debut at the Geneva auto show earlier this year. It gives us some indication of the production version, at least when you take away the large rear wing and the intake scallops. The overall design resembles the FT-1 concept that debuted way back in 2014 at the Detroit auto show.

It's essentially a race car with a sticker on it, but we're warned that some of the design cues came straight from the production car. Kevin Hunter, president of Calty Design Research, is responsible for the exterior styling. Although Hunter knows we have to be creative to see the real production Supra hidden under the race car, he's pleased with how the design was completed. "We're really happy with the way it came out," Hunter said as he was showing his most recent work.

This is a prototype, camouflaged version of the new Toyota Supra , and it is heading to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed . Not as a static display, but actually moving.

We don't know what Toyota has up its sleeve, but we hope it's good. Until then, we already know quite a few tidbits by chatting with Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada. The car will feature a turbo inline-six, a hybrid variant, and double the body rigidity of the Toyota 86, for example. It's also expected to have a perfect 50:50 weight balance front to rear, and as we've heard through the grapevine, it should drive differently than its platform-mate, the BMW Z4.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place July 12-15.
