During the 1991 season Toyota, while focusing its efforts on developing the new prototype for the World Prototype Championship, also evolved its Group C turbo car to try to win the Japanese Home Championship (JSPC).
The number of modifications that led to the Toyota 91C-V was extensive and, in addition to improving aerodynamic performance by shortening the rear end of the hood, the radiator on the right side of the body was relocated to the front of the vehicle. It was also possible to increase the frontal downforce, one of the biggest shortcomings in previous prototypes, improving cornering performance. The Toyota 91C-V was specifically designed to adapt to the characteristics of Japanese circuits, and was equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
In that 1991 season, made up of seven races, Toyota won 3 races, three for Nissan and one for Jaguar, but that was not enough to win the championship, having to settle for second and third position in the championship.
