The highly anticipated Toyota Supra has leaked early, ahead of its official reveal at the 2019 Detroit Motor Show next week. Here's a first look.
Ahead of its imminent global reveal, Toyota tweeted out a video showcasing the all-new Supra. While we don't have official specifications as yet, we do know that it shares more than a few components with the soon-to-be-launched BMW Z4.
According to Toyota Supra chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada, inline 6 cylinder engines are a non-negotiable attribute. The BMW-sourced motor should produce around 284 kW and 500 Nm, giving the new Supra enough shove to see it run to 100 kph in around 4.4 seconds. For those craving precise handling, there will be 50/50 weight distribution, a rigid body and adaptive dampers. Some rumours suggest that more engines including 4 cylinders will follow.
We'll have more details when the Toyota Supra launches early next week.
