2019 Toyota Supra spotted in the UK ahead of Goodwood debut
12 July 2018 - IndianAutosBlog
The 2019 Toyota Supra will debut in prototype form at the Goodwood Festival of speed in the UK on 12 July 2018.
Days before that, IAB viewer Johnny Daly has spotted an all-new Toyota Supra prototype on the public roads of the country.
The all-new Toyota Supra debuted in concept form as the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the forerunner inspired by the Toyota FT-1 concept from NAIAS 2014. The fifth generation Toyota Supra is a compact, two-door sports car with a front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration. It sits on a new platform co-developed with BMW, one that will underpin the next-gen BMW Z4 as well.
The 2019 Toyota Supra will likely measure around 4.6 metres in length, 2.0 metres in width and 1.2 metres in height, and have a 2.5-metre wheelbase. The reborn legend may come as a Gazoo Racing-exclusive model. It sports a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine that sends power to the wheels likely via a ZF-made 8-speed automatic transmission. Reports say that this engine delivers 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque.
The next-gen Toyota Supra will go on sale in the first markets in early to mid-2019. Contract manufacturer Magna Steyr will build the sports car in Graz, Austria. The fifth-gen model could be a fine brand-building tool for TKM.
