Sources have caught Toyota’s Supra prototype testing for the first time with no extra panels covering the body. This gives us the best idea so far of how this coupe will turn out to be.
From the pictures, one can easily spot the final production design cues like the pointy nose with the sleek headlamps and the XXL-sized air dams which inadvertently means that whatever’s nestling under that hood means business. The rear portion, on the other hand, is characterised by a roofline that slopes aggressively on to a mean set of tail lamps, twin exhausts and a diffuser.
Although Toyota has remained tight-lipped about the specs of the powertrain that will power the 2018 Supra, a leaked specification sheet points to a 3.0-litre turbo petrol motor with 335bhp/450Nm and an eight-speed auto transmission. Reports also state that a 2.0-litre turbo motor with 195bhp-248bhp on tap will join the line-up in the future, depending on the market.
Toyota is expected to showcase the new Supra at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for the details.
