The first image of the 2018-spec Toyota TS050 Hybrid was released on Thursday, featuring an updated livery.

It is the first glimpse of the only hybrid-powered LMP1 car set for the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship ‘Super Season’.

Toyota confirmed its driver lineup for the upcoming season last week, with Fernando Alonso replacing Anthony Davidson for most of the 2018 race.

The two-time Formula 1 champion will join Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima in the No. 8 car while Jose Maria Lopez, Mike Conway and Kamui Kobayashi will remain in the No. 7 car.

The updated car is understood to have already completed an initial test this year.
