Is the new Toyota Supra too demure for your liking? Well, maybe the Supra TRD will get your attention...
The Supra nameplate has been resurrected and Toyota’s latest rear-wheel-drive creation is expected to hit South African shores in June or July 2019. However, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) has gone to work to create this Supra TRD Concept in an effort to showcase its modification potential.
The Supra TRD Concept is fitted with a carbon fibre front splitter to increase downforce while also reducing lift at high speed. The concept is also equipped with carbon side skirts as well as rear carbon spats and a carbon spoiler mounted on the boot lid. The doors also gain additional aerodynamic garnish to enhance airflow towards the rear. The concept rides on lightweight 19-inch forged aluminium wheels with a mesh spoke design.
While the visual treatment gives the Supra a wider and more aggressive stance, its engine remains unchanged. The Supra TRD Concept is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged 6-cylinder engine with 250 kW and 495 Nm of torque which is directed to the rear wheels using an 8-speed automatic transmission.
