Fans of Toyota Supra, you were not having visions. Really comes a new Supra, which Toyota obliquely confirmed in the press release of the new GR Supra Racing Concept to be exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show. The sad news is that Toyota does not seem to have brought the version for the road.
However, if you booked a ticket or a hotel (or both), Supra Racing Concept is a pretty decent consolation prize. (Also, there are … many other incredible cars there.) And besides, combined with the not-so-spies shots of the road-going version that have been seen around the world, it's enough to have a rough idea of ​​how it will look the new Supra
At least, the GR Racing Concept can be played at Gran Turismo Sport
Driven by a mixture of nostalgia and, of course, a great deal of love for The Fast and The Furious, sports car fans have been yearning for a new Supra for decades. And it's really coming, thanks to a partnership with BMW that started a few years ago. But the process of designing, building and testing the car on the road has developed in a slow and exhausting slow motion, with prototypes appearing in almost the entire world. And yet, there is still no official revelation in sight.
Going back to the concept of racing, Toyota did not design a lot of statistics to flatter, unfortunately. But the racing concept at least has a pretty wild style. Loaded with composite body material, light and wild, sitting on Michelin racing tires, and sporting a rear wing the size of a chairlift, it seems infinitely fun to drive. The majority (or, let's be honest, all) of us will never have that opportunity, but there is a consolation in this consolation: the GR Supra Racing Concept will be added to Gran Turismo Sport in an April update. Maybe by then, Toyota will be ready to show us the real thing.
