merupakan kompetisinya yang ketiga dan selanjutnya mobil ini terus memenangi
tiga dari total enam ajang selama partisipasinya. Casisnya, yang telah
dimodifikasikan untuk tahun 2013, dirancang oleh TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH (TMG) –
tempat tim ini bernaung. TMG dulunya merupakan rumah bagi tim World Rally dan
Formula 1 TOYOTA, dan bertanggung jawab atas rancangan dan pengoperasian mobil
TS020 (GT-One) TOYOTA untuk ajang Le Mans pada 1998-99. TMG kini menggabungkan
karya khas rancangan mobil balap dengan sebuah inovasi baru dengan menggandeng
