TOYOTA IS CONSIDERING reviving the Supra HV-R GT hybrid race car in an attack on the Le Mans 24 Hours, according to reports in the European press today.

Powered by a 352kW V8 paired with front in-wheel electric motors and a 150kW rear-mounted electric motor, the Supra HV-R GT took out top honours at Japan's Tokkachi 24 Hour race in 2007.

A report by British magazine Autocar today suggests that Toyota is considering updating the HV-R GT's hybrid technology ahead of a possible 2012 Le Mans attack, by which time the Supra will be nearly 20 years old.

According to the report, Toyota's exit from Formula 1 has lead the Japanese brand to begin exploring opportunities in other motorsport codes.

Whether Toyota would continue with the older SuperGT-based Supra body or instead utilise the newer LFA design is unclear.
