The harbinger of the new Toyota Supra was a racing prototype

Toyota company several years ago announced the revival of the Supra model, but at the Geneva Motor Show 2018, the serial version of the model was not shown again. In the capital of Switzerland, the Japanese brought a racing prototype Gazoo Racing Supra Racing Concept. In fact, we have a really new Toyota Supra 5 generation that will get the A90 body index, but in the racing configuration with an aggressive aerodynamic package with a lot of carbon elements, slick tires, and Spartan interior. Toyota catalog To date, the company has confirmed only the name of the model, its main configuration (front-engine layout and rear-wheel drive), and also called the approximate time frame for the start of sales – this will be 2019. No further details. As for the concept car, it stands out with a carbon fiber splitter in the front, a huge rear wing, a massive diffuser, ventilation slots in the hood, widened wings, developed aerodynamic fins and small rear view mirrors on thin legs. In the cabin, there is a bucket seat for the pilot, safety cage, quick-release steering wheel in the form of a steering wheel with a display on it and a screen on the center console. All this is not much like a production car, although if you drop all the tinsel from the outside, then some conclusions on the design can be done now. The new Supra will receive a long bonnet and a rearward-cocked cab, narrow horizontal tail lights, a spoiler integrated into the trunk lid, head optics with diode sections and a hard top. Recall that the model is developed in close cooperation with BMW, which on the same chassis are preparing the successor of the Z4 roadster – that’s where the roof will be transformed.
