The new Toyota Supra production prototype has made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK.
We’ve seen countless spy shots and we got a taste of the latest Supra at the Geneva Motor Show with the GR Supra Racing Concept, but Toyota’s front-engined, rear wheel drive sports car is now inching ever closer to production. The revived Supra is expected to go on sale internationally in the first half of 2019.
A new Toyota Supra production prototype has made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which takes place this weekend where Toyota’s chief engineer Tetsuya Tada and master driver Herwig Daenens will race the reborn legendary coupe up Goodwood's iconic hill climb.
The reborn Supra shares the same platform with the upcoming BMW Z4.
Toyota has confirmed that the Supra will be powered by an in-line 6-cylinder engine which is likely to be a turbocharged 3.0-litre engine sourced from BMW, which makes sense if you consider that Toyota and BMW have been collaborating to develop the Supra and the next Z4, both which share the same platform. Exact details have yet to be confirmed but you can expect the Supra to offer in the region of 250 kW and 500 Nm of torque with a more powerful GRMN version expected later. A lesser, entry-level Supra model is also a possibility.
The Supra production prototype wears black, red and white Toyota Gazoo Racing livery in Goodwood to hide its design details.
We will keep you informed as soon as more information is revealed.
