TS030 has spare spaces for front wheel motors in sidepods but they later gave up that idea and shoved it away. So not really that different I doubt. Slimmer, higher, more 2012/13 F1-ish nose I guess.

It was my understanding that part of the change with the 2013 version of the car was removing the constraints on the design the trial of front and rear hybrid motors had imposed upon the 2012 car.

Or other fittings like pedals and steering wheel?

Seems like all the drivers are on their way or are arriving in Japan. Hope we get a treat! This should be a good read about Mike Conway http://www.toyotahybridracing.com/in-depth-mike-conway/ and some other questions here https://www.dailysportscar.com/?p=21520

Cockpit seems very bulbous.

With that kind of pics I can almost believe they might be actually hiding something and not just being late.

Toyota hybrid's press release; http://www.toyotahybridracing.com/hy...acing-in-2014/

Some interesting quotes
Quote:
The addition of an Aisin AW motor/generator on the front axle, in combination with the DENSO unit at the rear, means the TOYOTA HYBRID System – Racing now provides power to all four wheels.

Intensive simulation and calculation work at TMG has refined the TS040 HYBRID, utilising hardware-in-the-loop technology to test individual components based on real track data and powerful calculation computers to optimise designs...

Such cutting-edge techniques are significantly more efficient than track testing, allowing TMG engineers to continue optimising all aspects of the TS040 HYBRID chassis and lay-out for longer than rivals relying on traditional methods.

John Litjens, Chassis Project Leader: “The TS040 HYBRID is the result of more than one year of development at TMG. We started the first design studies back in November 2012 and gradually increased our efforts on this car, with our energies becoming fully focused on the TS040 HYBRID soon after Le Mans last year. We are very lucky at TMG to possess such advanced calculation and simulation technology which allows us to develop a car in the virtual world. This enables more pure development work to be completed on the design before a car is even built and this is even more significant when managing a major regulation change like we faced for 2014.
