Future Toyota Supra face-lifted

by SpeedLux

Word is out that the most anticipated collaboration that everyone is waiting to bat an eye on is the jointly-developed Toyota and BMW sports cars. Additionally, these cars would produce over 470 hp in plug-in hybrid specification.

Theophilus Chin recently created the new rendering of Toyota’s side of the project. Toyota has used its FT-1 Concept’s design while integrating a sporty look. Moreover, Toyota has also used some design elements from the GT86 especially its iconic wheels. The rear wheel arches and roofline are also a sign of lineage of the GT86. The most remarkable feature of the design is its long bonnet and a blacked-out front grille which gives it a muscular appearance. The rendered model is undeniably exceptional with its design however reports suggest that the new Toyota Supra and BMW’s replacement of the Z4 will both have a lightweight aluminum space-frame chassis and additional reinforcements of carbon fiber, improved and strengthened plastic body panels.

When we compare that with through an engine perspective, the BMW side of the project is set to replace the Z4’s model which will be available with both a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine and a 3.0 liter turbo six cylinder. And a new model hybrid plug-in variant will also be produced by the company later in the future. On the other hand, the Toyota will be available with the same 3.0 liter turbo six-cylinder engine and will also be offered a hybrid variant with the same 3.0 liter six cylinder engine. Overall the BMW’s four-cylinder should be able to produce about 241 hp and 350 Nm of torque and the Toyota 3.0 liter engine can deliver about 335 hp accompanied by 450 Nm of torque. The hybrid is speculated to produce as much as 470 hp.
