The Minolta Toyota 88C-V Race Car `89 (commonly known as simply the Minolta) is a blue and white race car produced by Toyota. It appears in Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo (PSP), Gran Turismo 5, and Gran Turismo 6. This car appears to be the #36 driven by Geoff Lees, Masanori Sekiya, and Keiichi Suzuki. The trio would later finish 22nd place in the WEC-Japan round of the 1988 World Sports Car Endurance Championship. The 88CV was Toyota`s first attempt at equipping its Group C car with something other than a turbocharged inline-4, an engine it had used until 1988. But as the level of competition became elevated, the inline-4`s modest output, fuel economy, and durability called for the company to build something better. And Toyota did, in the form of a new twin-turbocharged 3.2-liter V-8. This power plant exhibited remarkable flexibility, providing gobs of low-end and mid-range torque. Power was rated at more than 789 HP, and with boost pressure turned up, the engine was able to produce over 986 HP for qualifying runs. Toyota plopped this motor into a new lightweight carbon composite body. Thus, the 88CV was born. Announced at the end of February, an 88CV prototype began test runs in April 1988. The 88CV briefly took the lead in the final before retiring with mechanical problems. In the final round of the World Championship WEC in Japan, the 88CV managed to secure 5th place in qualifying against the best competition in the world, but in the end, mechanical problems led to a 22nd place finish. After the season was over, the 88CV underwent extensive design changes and evolved into the 89CV.
