Back in July 2018, a low, long-hood sports car wearing camouflage with mysterious “A90” markings blasted up the narrow, curvy Goodwood hill climb during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. For Toyota enthusiasts, “A90” was the giveaway: the A40, A60, A70 and A80 that came before were Supras. The Supra was coming back.
Now, the much-awaited fifth-generation Supra has made its debut at the Detroit Motor Show, ending years of anticipation and speculation. The new Supra goes on sale later this year and will be available in two versions – 3.0 and 3.0 Premium, as well as a Launch Edition which will be based on the 3.0 Premium version.
The new Supra is powered by a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine. It’s a 3-litre twin-scroll turbo six that produces 335bhp and is teamed with a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Toyota is claiming a zero to 100kmph acceleration time of 4.1 seconds.
