The highly anticipated Toyota Supra sports car is scheduled to make its public debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK. The only thing is that it is a prototype model and will be draped in a full camouflage.
According to Toyota, the prototype model will be participating in the Goodwood hill climb with Chief Engineer Testuya Tada and Master Driver, Herwig Daenens behind the wheel. This will give onlookers and fans around the world a first taste of the glorious in-line six-cylinder engine as well as how the near-perfect balance (50:50) chassis and front-engine rear-wheel drive sports car will dance through the corners.
Upon closer inspection of the camouflaged Supra, we can tell that the road-going version shares the same silhouette as the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept ( “test drive” exercise of the GR Supra Racing Concept race car is now available) down to the raised boot lid. The prototype also wears a less elaborate rear diffuser, twin exhaust pipes (one on either side of the car) as well as stylish five twin-spoke alloy wheels shod in Michelin branded rubbers.
The new Toyota Supra is expected to hit markets in the first half of 2019 and will be available strictly as a coupe. If you prefer an open top motoring experience while carving through a mountain pass, perhaps the BMW Z4 that shares the same development grounds with the Supra will pique your interest.
