There have been rumours of a Supra revival for five years now, but finally, after endless whispers, prototypes and teasers, the new Toyota Supra is here. While it has a lot of similarities with the BMW Z4; the new Supra has done quite a bit to be called the ultimate modern sports car.
Engine: V6 – 3 LiterPetrol Engine
Torque: 500 Nm
Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds
Top Speed: 250 km/h
Drive System: Rear Wheel Drive
Wheels: Lightweight aluminum 20″ wheels,
It is note worthy that the new Supra is small, at only 4379mm long and is exactly the same length as a Porsche 718 Cayman, this despite of a long bonnet and sloping roofline. With a compact wheelbase, at 2470mm, about 100mm less than the smaller GT86.
Let’s also not forget that Supra has a strict two-seat cabin.
Everything from the switchgear to the iDrive is borrowed from BMW.
The Supra is a result of a BMW-Toyota collaboration first announced in 2012. The two companies are working together on engines and lithium-ion batteries, and this rear-wheel drive sports-car platform. In addition to the Supra, this platform underpins the new BMW Z4.
