Today, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing announced the dates for the launch of the GR Supra GT4 sales. The new customer racing car will be available in Europe from March, 2020.
In the media world, the announcement of the launch of the new GR Supra GT4, made a few months ago, attracted a lot of attention. In addition to spreading the news via the communication channels of TMG, Toyota Europe and Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), several motor-racing magazines as well as various GT4 race series and the ADAC GT4 Germany also reported on the launch of the new Toyota GT4 customer sport vehicle. In the coming four years, the racing cars will be built in Cologne-Marsdorf, the plant that was also responsible for building the Toyota Formula One and LMP1 racing cars. When they are delivered to customers, the vehicles will feature the RAVENOL logo and be filled with RAVENOL lubricants. During all the tests and races executed by TMG, the GR Supra GT4 will carry the RAVENOL logo.
RAVENOL lubricants in the GR Supra GT4
The Toyota racing car features an in-line six-cylinder 2,998cc engine with a Twin-Scroll turbo charger perfectly lubricated by RAVENOL RUP Racing Ultra Performance SAE 5W-40 engine oil with special USVO® technology. This highly sophisticated, fully synthetic engine oil with its unique formula of special molybdenum and tungsten additives is the ideal solution for motor racing, particularly in extreme conditions. Perfect lubrication at extremely high operation temperatures, a high HTHS viscosity and extreme shear stability are guaranteed. Other RAVENOL oils and operating fluids used in the Supra GT4 are RAVENOL DGL SAE 75W-85 GL-5 LS in the automatic gearbox (rear-wheel drive), high-performance RAVENOL Racing Brake Fluid R325+ for the braking system and the eco-friendly RAVENOL LTC - Protect C12++ based on 1.2 ethanediol (monoethylene glycol) for the cooling system.
