Upcoming Toyota Supra spotted with barely any camouflage
With the Geneva Motor Show opening its doors soon, Toyota seems busy preparing the new Supra for its much anticipated debut. As recently spotted by our spies, it appears that the next-generation Supra has already dropped most of its camouflage, revealing most of it's production body line. Only a thin layer of foil with swirl prints hide some of the finer details of the vehicle.
In front, we can see the large air intakes more clearly together with the shape of the bumper. Also equipped on this test mule are the production LED headlights, showing it's final design. Noticeably, there is a small vent situated below the headlight that likely channels air to the brakes or possibly an oil cooler and exits through the front fenders.
Moving to the side of the vehicle, we see that there is also a vent for the rear fender. This design could be nod to the rear vent found of the fourth-generation Supra. Similar to the front vents, the rear vents likely helps cool the rear brakes as well. The rear of the cars is heavily covered in snow, hiding details of the trunk and taillight. Despite that, the lack of false panels show the shape of the rear diffuser very clearly. Furthermore, the rear view clearly shows that the Supra will adopt a double bubble roof.
Under the hood, the Supra is said to adopt a 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. Power is expected to be around the 300 to 350 PS mark and will likely be channeled to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. A manual transmission has yet to be confirmed.
Last week, Toyota released a teaser of the upcoming Supra which will debut at Geneva. Surprisingly, the silhouette features a large rear wing attached to the vehicle. That said, it is possible that Toyota will debut the Supra as a GTE racer under Gazoo Racing first before showing the road-going vehicle.
