Interesting that the car has tested at Fuji already and is running Bridgestone tires. I really think they will either race this car or produce road versions of it, maybe (hopefully) both?

The Carbon fiber prototype is just a WEC car in different body.
even the steering is exact one from WEC.

I wonder how much of THIS goes into actual car in the end...

Logical thinking but this wont be happening.
As far as I am aware, to make this car reliable enough to be sold to consumer. Toyota will need to remake the whole engine, Hybrid system(
Motor and battery), regulation with Japanese vehicle law etc. another word, nothing will stay in the car...lol

But I have no doubt that once the car is out, it will be worthy to take it on track!

Why? Japanese vehicle laws say you can't make/sell a hybrid exotic? Especially considering the hit it was at TAS and winning an award. Making it reliable shouldn't be a problem, since it's most likely not going to be ran at Le Mans by customers Mercedes is doing something similar with their project one using an f1 engine with some modifications. I like this car more a little more than the GT-One. I find it very reminiscent of it though, the 4 headlights, the inner fender cutouts.

@Japanese Samurai, is the as-books article just those preview pages? It seems like it's numbered at the bottom so just a two-page article. Anything new?

With the TS050 livery applied on it, the car looks strikingly similar to something out of Ridge Racer...

Thanks. I was hoping for some more information on the car. I haven't seen an interview yet about it, maybe it will have a future and then we can see if it races or is the basis for the lmp1.

Toyota has completed a successful first test with the latest version of the TS050 HYBRID.
They were testing for three days at the Aragon circuit in Spain last week with Sebastien Buemi and Mike Conway driving.
