The accident occurred during the test

On the “Northern Loop” of the Nurburgring broke the first sports car Toyota Supra of a new generation. At the same time, apparently, the car belonged to Toyota itself, since the accident did not occur during public track-days: the track was booked and closed exclusively for tests by automakers.

According to Autoevolution, the accident occurred in the Eksmühle section: the driver of the Supra was supposed to be wrong with the trajectory, lost control and crashed into the fence. As a result, the car was severely damaged front end. The pilot and passenger cars were not injured. After the accident, the coupe was loaded into a closed trailer and taken off the track.

The new Toyota Supra is built on a common platform with the BMW Z4. The coupe is equipped with a three-liter row “six” with a power of 340 horsepower, an eight-speed automatic gearbox, an adaptive suspension and an active rear differential. Versions of the sports car for Japan, in addition to the “six”, will be equipped with four-cylinder turbo engines.
