Although the Toyota Supra has not yet been presented, it has already been handed over to a few lucky people. Journalists – one of our American colleagues was among the happy – but also rally driver Jari-Matti Latvala, who delivers his impressions in this video.
The Finn, accustomed to driving his 400 hp Yaris on uneven slopes, obviously enjoyed this small supra-short break on the perfect bitumen of a racetrack and offered himself tips "at 250 or 260 km / h". Do not rely on it to reveal the specifications of this generation A90, which must remain secret for some time.
However, we got to know the car through the teasers and information posted here and there. We know, for example, that this generation is A90 "remains with his heritage of sports coupe with front-wheel drive and six-cylinder in-line mounting" (Dixit Toyota) The six in the series with a turbo show a performance of more than 300 hp. An automatic eight-speed gearbox from ZF is assigned. An ideal mass distribution of 50/50, an active differential and adaptive suspensions ensure perfect performance.
The new Supra, which was also to be offered with four-cylinder engines, will be presented at the Detroit 2019 Show and launched in the first half of this year. The impatient can already pre-book their copy with a deposit of 2000 euros.
