Following plenty of teasers with the latest being a short clip from Toyota Mexico, official details and photos of the automotive giant’s long-awaited 2020 Supra coupe have now emerged. Having made its debut today at the Detroit Auto show, the two-seater boasts 335 horsepower, 50:50 weight distribution, and a slew of personal design touches made by Toyota President Akio Toyoda himself such as its long sculpted hood.
According to AutoBlog, the Supra features “a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline-six engine with a variable intake valve lift system.” It’s capable of reaching 60 miles per hour in just 4.1 seconds before it reaches its limited top speed of 155 miles per hour. Moreover, the car arrives with an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard adaptive variable suspension complete with variable-assist and variable-ratio electric power steering. In line with the spirit of Toyota Gazoo Racing, the coupe is also fastened with 19-inch forged alloy wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sports tires, four-piston Brembo brake calipers, and 13.7-inch front brake rotors.
Elevated features continue with the car’s selectable driving modes (Normal and Sport) alongside keyless entry, dual climate control, automatic windshield wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, power folding side mirrors, and a leather steering wheel. Moreover, safety is heightened with forward collision warning and auto emergency braking attributes. Not to mention, lane departure warning with steering assets, road sign recognition, and auto high beams also complete its security specs.
