Toyota teases the world once again with the upcoming Supra Prototype

July 9, 2018

Talk of an all-new Toyota Supra has been going on for quite some time now. The Japanese carmaker has even released a special Gazoo Racing Supra to show just what its iconic coupe is capable of. And now, Toyota is set to reveal the latest iteration of its Supra model—in prototype form, that is.

The Supra prototype will make its global debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. This was confirmed by Toyota along with some teaser images of a coupe wrapped in black, white, and red camouflage—a nod to the brand’s very own Gazoo Racing division.

It won’t merely be a reveal with a Supra sitting still, mind you. The car will actually be driven around the legendary track by Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada and “master driver” Herwig Daenens. While Toyota wasn’t too keen on spilling all the beans, it did serve up a few juicy details.

For one, the new Supra will be a front-engine, rear-wheel drive offering with an inline-6. The motor could be the 3.0-liter turbocharged mill with 335hp and 500Nm of torque. This will allow the car to blast from rest to the century mark in 4.5 seconds, reports say.  The Supra could also come in a more affordable package with a 2.0-liter turbo four with 245hp.

Of course, all this remains to be seen once the Toyota Supra hits the production floor in the first half of 2019. For now, we’ll just have to be content with the Supra prototype that will be revealed this weekend at Goodwood.
