The hybrid Toyota GR HV will go on show at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month bearing a quirky H-pattern automatic transmission.

BUILT OFF THE SAME platform as the Toyota 86, the GR HV Concept, named for Gazoo Racing and Hybrid Vehicle runs a tweaked version of the hybrid set-up from the TSO50 that competes in the World Endurance Championships. Toyota claims it’s inspired by the Supra and Toyota Sports 800.

Toyota said, “The LED headlights, five-bolt wheels and rear diffuser evoke the components used on the hybrid-powered WEC racer”.

The push button ignition is located on top of the shifter which, via the red M button on the centre stack can be used to simulate six-speed manual operation; the driver then physically moves the shifter via an H-pattern set-up.

There’s no word on the combustion engine or the overall output of the electric motor and petrol engine combined.

  1. Love the idea of hybrid and the performance if true would be Cayman GTS levels for a wee fraction of the price. But what have they done to the only good looking Toyota in existence, looks like they outsourced design to the Honda civic Type-R team, hopefully it looks nothing like this crock.
