The GT300 Prius is real!

A few weeks ago, I posted a concept image of a GT300 version of the Toyota Prius. I remember at the time commenting that if that car were to actual exist, then the Prius would ascend to new levels of coolness. (Which wouldn’t be hard, since the Prius already starts at a -2.)

Enter the Tokyo Auto Salon. With a joint partnership between Team APR (who fielded two Axio GT in seasons previous)  and TRD, the Toyota Prius will be entered in the GT300 Class of Super GT.

With the new Prius in the mix, I think it’s fair to say that being ‘green’ just got a little bit cooler. Not much information has been released, but I think that it’s cool to see this car in the metal.

What do you guys think?

    • I don’t know, I think that it’s still pretty cool. At least Toyota is thinking outside of the box a bit. Also the costs of running a GT300 team should be less than running a GT500 one, so at least we get to see different models in the series.
