General info

The TS050 featuring the typical Le Mans Prototype racing car body, with the lower flat front bonnet, the oversized fenders, the complicated side pontoon design, a vertical fin and a large spoiler. It was in the tricolor of white, red and black, with logos of the sponsors that supports Toyota Gazoo Racing for the 2018-19 WEC season.

The bodyshell, unlike other Mini 4WD cars, was made of clear polycarbonate with plastic mounting attached, meaning it can be painted in any color with spray paint (Usually the special paints for polycarbonate). Because cutting is also required, this makes the assembly of the car harder for those not used to this.

It was equipped with black, small diameter low-profile fin-type wheels and the black low profile tires. Both the chassis frame and A parts were molded in black.
