The Toyota GT300 race car was first reported on late last year, at the time we were limited to a few unconfirmed renderings. Now we get a chance to look at the the real thing as it was displayed at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Team APR are responsible for this particular model and it features the full aerodynamic body kit which leaves it barely recognisable as a Prius. Under the hood , a near 300hp power unit is hiding to put it within the GT300 regulations, a far cry from the 134hp (100 kW / 136 PS) produced by the production model.

There are no further details at this stage, but if more do become available, you'll hear them here first.
