The Toyota Supra is inching closer to production and the company has begun removing camouflage from its prototypes.
As you can see in the latest spy photos, the model echoes the FT-1 concept but features a significantly revised front fascia with larger air intakes. The car has also been equipped with LED headlights and upper vents that mimic the concept.
Moving further back, we can see aerodynamic side skirts and muscular rear fenders which emphasize this is a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Other notable styling features include a double bubble roof and vents in front of the rear wheels.
The Supra’s rear end is covered by snow but there’s no mistaking the sporty rear diffuser and the massive dual exhaust system. The model also has an integrated spoiler and LED taillights.
While the camouflage is still hiding a number of secrets we’ll get a better glimpse at the upcoming model when Toyota unveils the “modern racing concept” at the Geneva Motor Show next month. Reports have suggested the model could be called the Supra GRNM Racing concept and images depict an aggressive coupe with a front splitter, canards and center-locking wheels.
The production model will eventually follow the concept and reports have suggested the car will have a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that develops 335 hp (249 kW) and up to 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. The model is also rumored to be shorter and lighter than the previous-generation Supra as the car is claimed to weigh just 1,496 kg (3,284 lbs).
