The Prius family of vehicles is growing fast, from plug-in to minivan, and now it has it's newest member. Toyota has released a photo of a new Prius race car, set to compete in next year's SuperGT season. The Prius GT300 looks nothing like its namesake and, if it wants to compete as a race car, won't drive anything like it either.
The GT300 will use a hybrid drivetrain of course and will compete in a class with the new Subaru BRZ and Honda CR-Z, replacing Toyota's former SuperGT offering, the Corolla Axio racer. More details about the GT300's specifications should be available in January.
This isn't Toyota's first foray into racing electric and hybrid vehicles. The automaker recently set a Nurburgring record for EVs and will enter a hybrid into the 2012 FIA World Endurance Championship.
