Tamiya introduced the Toyota GT-One on a formula-style chassis, preceding the similar Audi R8R and Porsche 911 GT1 LM releases. The car represented is the #27 racer that placed 9th (7th in class) at the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours. The Type A Reinforced slick tires and Sport-Tuned 540 motor allow for rapid cornering and more straight-line speed, and the bodyshell's shape is said to produce more downforce than the Porsche and Audi shells. The striking red/white livery is reproduced using extensive decals.
