“DIVE into the HYBRID” Music by Yasutaka Nakata
The state-of-the-art TS040 HYBRID has proven that Toyota’s hybrid technology is more than just environment friendly?it also boosts the “Fun to Drive” quotient by providing superior acceleration performance. It was just such performance that helped rocket Toyota to become the first Japanese manufacturer ever to win the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) manufacturers’ title, when it captured the crown in 2014.

A Need for Speed – Sounds of Urgent Development
In high performance motorsport engineering, it is vital that knowledge obtained from races and test runs be speedily applied to technological development. That is why – in order to facilitate timely on-site delivery of various parts – equipment for manufacture and precision testing must be available at the actual design engineering facility. To achieve ever-improving results, there is a need for speed – not only at the racetrack, but in the workshop!
