Toyota's made a Le Mans auto for the road

If this is any indication of what Toyota's future supercars and sports cars will be like, count us in.

Featuring the same 2.4-liter twin-turbo V6 engine from the Toyota TS050 Hybrid, the Super Sport Concept delivers nearly 1,000 combined horsepower between its internal combustion and electric motors.

Last year, Toyota boss Akio Toyoda said that as the auto industry approaches times of tremendous change he is "strongly determined to make sure that cars will be fun for the next 100 years" One small step towards that honorable goal would be Toyota turning its World Endurance Championship TS050 race vehicle into a road-going halo machine.

And that's where the GR Super Sport Concept comes in. At CES, the company presented the e-Palette Concept, which is basically an automated living room.

The parts overlap between GR Super Sport Concept and TS050 is considerable, the automaker says, and will be instrumental to development of each in future. "Its appeal is more personal, like that of a much-loved horse to its owner". "This is how sporting competition contributes to Toyota Gazoo Racing's efforts to make ever-better cars".

The team's turbocharged Yaris WRC cars have better aerodynamic balance and upgraded engine cooling, while the driver line-up now includes Estonia's two-time WRC event victor Ott Tänak, who joins Jari-Matti Latvala and Esapekka Lappi.
