An image has just emerged online which appears to show the upcoming Toyota Supra Racing Concept set to premiere at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
The Japanese automaker recently confirmed such a vehicle would launch in a couple of weeks and published a teaser image showing its roofline, decklid, and a towering rear wing. This image, initially published in a Japanese magazine and shared by SupraMKV, appears to show the same concept in all its glory.
If this image is indeed genuine, the first thing to note is that the Racing Concept adopts essentially the same bodywork as the original FT-1 Concept. What makes the new concept so different is the plethora of aerodynamic parts, including the aforementioned wing and canards on both sides of the front bumper.
Additional racing touches include yellow headlight covers, centerlock racing wheels with Bridgestone tires, and a lowered ride height.
What is of most interest to us is the fact that Toyota has officially referred to the Racing Concept as a preview of the all-new generation Supra. This makes it seem as though the design of the road-going sports car will be similar to the Racing Concept, albeit without the aero parts. Consequently, the exterior design of the FT-1 may remain relatively untouched for the production model.
Stay tuned to Carscoops in the coming weeks leading up to the Toyota Supra Racing Concept’s launch in Geneva.
