These Supra Owners Won’t Be Getting Their Cars on Time
A trailer carrying a whole bunch of new Toyota Supras in Hungary got into a bit of trouble yesterday. We don’t know what happened, but it looks like at least 3 Toyota Supras got damaged.
It’s possible the truck was rear-ended or it backed up into something. The white unit on top suffered damage to its rear bumper and exhausts. The dark grey/black one on the bottom level looks totalled, with half its rear completely unidentifiable. It also looks as if the red Supra in front of this one was pushed out by the impact and may have suffered some damage too.
About the new Toyota Supra
The new Supra is the first global model of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s GR sports car series. Ever since first competing in Germany’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring endurance race in 2007, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing has been aiming through its motorsports activities to develop its cars and people, with the goal of “making ever-better cars.” The knowledge and know-how it has built up over the years have been funneled into bringing the Supra back to life in the form of the “GR Supra,” as a car that people the world over will find fun to drive.
The new Supra produced at the Magna Steyr, Graz Plant in Austria is the first product in a comprehensive collaboration with BMW. Following shipment by sea, the cars will pass through Toyota’s Motomachi plant for delivery to customers in Japan.
The all-new fifth-generation Supra marks the end of a 17-year hiatus since the conclusion of production of the previous generation in 2002. Ever since the Supra’s inception in 1978, all generations have been front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicles powered by an inline six-cylinder engine. The latest rendition is no exception. This time around, extensive attention has also been paid to the three fundamental elements of wheelbase, tread, and center of gravity, thus achieving handling performance befitting a pure sports car.
