Toyota Supra Set to Debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018!
Toyota of Europe gave up the goods on the new Toyota Supra.
We have known that it is coming. BMW and Toyota have been working together on a next generation sports car. BMW’s sports car will wear a ‘Z’ badge. Toyota’s sports car, which slots above the entry-level 86, brings back the iconic Supra nameplate.
Now, Toyota of Europe has taken to Twitter to drop hints. The biggest of which is the reveal date and location: The 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Festival of Speed takes place this year from July 12-15. So, we will finally see the new Supra in just a week’s time.
We have taken the supplied image above and brightened up all of the shadowed area. The lightened photo showcases a lot of styling details poking out from the deceptive camo wrap.
This fifth-generation Supra has the chassis code ‘A90,’ as can be seen stamped all over the intricately wrapped exterior. Also note that GR insignia on the door, that is part of Toyota GAZOO Racing, Toyota’s newfound sports car and racing arm. This Nurburgring-based Toyota racing outfit, presumably, has been heavily involved in the development of the A90 Supra. This explains all of the Nurburgring spy shots that exist of the car.
Styling-wise the biggest surprise is in the side profile. The aggressive front end hasn’t changed from the FT-1 concept. Similarly, the rakish short tail, with an aggressive wing element closely matches the Supra renders and concepts that have been floating around the Internet for years now. It’s the side profile that is of interest to us. We spy fender vents up front, aggressive scalloped door panels and side skirts, anwide, flared quarter panels. The overall effect is short, mostly wheelbase and 100% desirable. We shall see what surfaces at Goodwood next week.
