Toyota Supra is Set to Release in 2018
Toyota Supra has developed in a joint engineering venture with the new BMW Z5, which is currently in its final development phase. Supra is Toyota’s one of the high-performance models which are creating history since 1978. The latest Supra is manufactured along with the joint venture of BMW Z5 which is soon to be launched by the company as well. The new and improved Supra is in its 5th generation and the model is in the market for the past 14 years. If the news to be trusted, the Toyota Supra will reach the showrooms of UK in the latter half of 2018.
Toyota Supra is coming up with both traditional petrol engine and a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. It will come with a fixed-roof coupe and the BMW roadster will weigh little more than 1400kg in turbocharged 2.0-litre four cylinder entry-level guise. Supra was first previewed by a pair of Toyota FT-1 concepts that were unveiled at the 2014 Detroit motor show.
Toyota Supra Features and Engine
Toyota and BMW have developed lightweight construction processes that will be used within the body structures of the Supra and Z5. The Z5 will receive BMW’s newest engines that will deliver around 251hp and a turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder unit, the B58, in the Z5 M40i M Performance with 340hp. The newly-developed twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 petrol unit, which will be shared with various Lexus models over the longer-term will be the performance flagship of the new lineup. The new Toyota Supra has expected 0-100 kph time of less than 4.0sec and a governed 249kph top speed.
Toyota Supra version is seeming very surprising, as the car doesn’t look like a Toyota at all. Now as the price and the release date has not being confirmed yet, we will have to wait some more time for the detailed information of this car.
