Toyota announced the premiere of a new sports carFebruary 13, 2018
The company Toyota has published a teaser image of its new sports car and announced its premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6. At the same time, the Japanese brand did not open the name of the novelty, confining itself to the message about the “revival of the legend”. Most likely, we are talking about a new sports car, which is positioned as a successor to the Supra.
In the model line of the Japanese brand, the car will take a step above the GT86 and will be the new flagship of the Japanese company. At the same time, the car will be sold under a new subbrand of Gazoo Racing.
The new Supra will share the platform with the third-generation BMW Z4 roadster – German and Japanese specialists are jointly developing a chassis for the new generation sports car since 2014. Thanks to the body of carbon fiber, the weight of the car will be less than 1,400 kilograms.
Flagship sports car Toyota will receive a hybrid power plant with an electric unit on the front axle and all-wheel drive. In addition, the sports car for the first time in the history of Toyota will receive a robotic gearbox with two clutches.
The engine line should include a two-liter four-cylinder with a capacity of about 245 hp, also a three-liter six-cylinder unit that produces about 330 horsepower. Both motors will be provided by BMW. In total, customers will be offered four modifications of the sports car – Supra, Supra GR, Supra GR Sport, Supra GRMN. All versions of the machine will differ greatly between technical characteristics and price.
