The new Toyota Supra will not be cheapApril 18, 2018
Sportcar Toyota Supra a new generation, work on which is carried out together with BMW, will differ significantly in price from the coupe GT 86. “The car will not be cheap,” said Vice President of the European office of the brand Herald Kilmann in an interview with AutoRAI.
The top manager also confirmed that Supra will share the platform and power unit with the new generation BMW Z4. In this case, the design and settings of the chassis will be significantly different. There will not be a hybrid installation, although there were rumors about it, and the model will receive only a gasoline engine.
Chief Project Engineer Supra Tetsuy Tada previously said that the sports car will not be equipped with a manual transmission, since the automatic transmission with two clutches will better realize the potential of the power plant.
This unit will be a three-liter inline six-cylinder with two turbochargers. According to preliminary information, the output of the engine developed by BMW will be about 450 horsepower.
