Toyota’s future car called the Supra is coming soon. If you are a car enthusiast, you know that the current generation of Supra is a piece of perfection and it seems that it will be even more perfect when it hits the market in 2015. The Supra represents the only vehicle that can actually compete against the mighty Skyline. The new Supra is expected to be more powerful and enhanced in terms of exterior and interior, but the greatest thing about the new model is that it will be affordable. Let’s take a closer look at the new 2016 Toyota Supra.
2016 Toyota Supra Exterior
Once Toyota revealed their new FT-1 concept, rumors started circulating that their new 2016 Supra will actually be based on the concept. This sports car will be absolutely amazing in every way. The vehicle will be available as a coupe and convertible model. Having in mind that the new Supra will be based on the FT-1 concept, we can expect to see some radical changes. Both taillights and headlights will receive a new design and they will arrive with LED technology.
The front bumper will be similar to the bumpers you usually see on Formula 1 cars. As for the wheels, the vehicle will be offered with 19 inch light alloy units. The newcomer will also be based on a new platform. The new generation of this model will be developed in cooperation with BMW which suggests that the new model could share some of the elements like for example platform with the Z4. Sincerely, we don’t mind if the newcomer takes some of BMW’s design cues because their vehicles are the most impressive and appealing ones in the business.
Toyota Supra 2016 Interior
As far as the interior design of the 2016 Toyota Supra is concerned, the company said that it will have a rather bare interior primarily because they want to keep the driving experience pure. The cabin won’t feature way too many real buttons, and it will use a 10-inch touchscreen display instead. The new screen will control most of the functions inside of the vehicle.
Additionally, they spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort to design great, sports seats that will offer support and keep the driver and passengers in place even at highest speeds. Surfaces inside of the cabin will mostly be covered in leather.
Toyota Supra Engine
If the rumors are true, only one engine option will be available for the 2016 Toyota Supra. The vehicle will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine. The output of the engine is expected to be around 340 to 360 horses and 300 lb-ft of torque.
Besides the 2.4-liter engine, there will also be two electric motors to offer help to the engine. The combo will deliver over 450 hp. The vehicle will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, with top speed being rated at 190 mph.
