Was watching this for a bit. The GR010 is a monster. Is the Super Sport project still a thing or is that dead??
There doesn't seem to be much good, credible information on the GR Super Sport. There are claims it was axed due to a serious accident in a test mule at Fuji, but there's only one source.

It should be noted that the rules do not require them make an entire homologation special anymore, just the car's engine and hybrid unit.

Given the hypercar uses a 3.5L twin turbo V6, I would presume this requirement has already been fulfilled. However, I couldn't find anything to confirm how it fulfilled homologation requirements. It all gets very technical.

TLDR. I don't know.

I wonder if the V35A-FTS, the new V6 twin turbo engine, is related to homologation in any way.

It has been placed in the following vehicles:
I’m sure there is some relation. A variant is rumored to be in that GT3 concept car whenever they build it or whatever it’s being built as.

The worst part about the crash too is the GTE Pro leader was AF Corse. The car that crashed the Corvette out was an AF Corse LMP2. 🤔
