First look at Toyota Supra

First look at Toyota Supra

It's not long until Toyota pulls the wraps off its most anticipated models in years, the new Supra.

We'll have to wait until January 14 at the Detroit Auto Show to see the fifth-generation (A90) Toyota Supra with our naked eyes, but here's something to tide us over until then. For example, the transparent panel on the hood scoop of the FT-1 is unsurprisingly not on the production auto.

Toyota has sent out another teaser of the 2020 Toyota Supra, this time showing its side mirror. It gets a large front splitter with triple-vent air dam, a pointed nose with the T-badge and LED headlamps with integrated DRL-stripes.

We've seen multiple spy shots of it, over what seems like the better part of a year by now; numerous test mules across the world, heavily camouflaged examples being driven at the Nurburgring and other motorsports events, one Nascar version, and now, literally weeks away from its 2019 Detroit Auto Show reveal - Toyota's best-kept secret has seen the light of day.

Full details of the Supra will be confirmed at the 2019 Detroit motor show. Its VIN will be #20201 and it will feature a special paint scheme (teased below) including matte gray exterior paint, matte black wheels, red mirror caps, and a red leather interior featuring a carbon-fiber plaque denoting it as the first 2020 Supra. It shares several bits with the all-new BMW Z4 and uses a BMW-sourced 3.0-litre inline six engine producing around 340 bhp and 475 Nm of peak torque. There will also be additional features apart from those mentioned earlier that will be announced at a later date.

Separately, Carscoops reports that first production Supra in the USA market will be auctioned off for charity. All of the proceeds for the vehicle will be donated to the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The first production MkV 2020 Toyota Supra will be up for auction there next month on Saturday, January 19.
