Toyota will introduce a new colour scheme for its World Endurance Championship LMP1 contender in 2016.
The Japanese manufacturer will abandon the blue-and-white livery in which its cars have raced since its return to frontline sportscar racing on the birth of the WEC in 2012 in favour of black, white and red.
The colours were unveiled on Thursday at Toyota's official motorsport announcement in Japan on a 2015 TS040 HYBRID show car.
The first sight of the 2016 TS050 HYBRID in black, white and red is not expected until the official launch of the all-new LMP1 ahead of the official WEC test at Paul Ricard at the end of March.
The new livery follows the adoption of the Toyota Gazoo Racing team name in May last year and, according to a statement, "signifies the increasing importance of motorsport" to the manufacturer.
So-called 'teaser' shots of the TS050, which is powered by a new turbocharged powerplant, taking part in its first test at the Aragon circuit in Spain have been released by Toyota.
