2020 Toyota Supra Crashes At The Nurburgring, Loses Its Nose

The Nurburgring has claimed the integrity of yet another vehicle, a new Toyota Supra that crashed at the German track yesterday, during the Industry Pool.

The car hit the guardrail head first, which left a good chunk of its front end missing, as the images posted on Facebook by TopNurburgringVideos reveal. The impact was severe enough to trigger the airbags and seems to have left the Supra immobilized.

It’s impossible to tell from this angle whether it has sustained other damages, but it does need a thorough inspection before deciding whether it’s worth salvaging. We don’t know the circumstances that led to this outcome, although if we had had to guess, we’d bet on either speed, losing grip or a driver error – or all of the above.

This appears to be the second recorded incident involving the all-new Supra. The first took place last summer, before the car was officially unveiled, and saw a prototype hitting a guardrail. Our spy photographers were present at the scene and took a few pictures of the aftermath, which you can see here.

Due to the extensive damages suffered, the test car had to be towed away. Luckily, nobody was injured and, unlike the car, the driver escaped without a scratch.

    wHEN You realizes that you actually drives a rwd BMW Z4 IN the middle of a sharp turn…

      “…We’ve driven prototypes of both, and each have their own personality. Unlike the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ “Toyobaru” platform-sharing coupes–which are nearly indistinguishable from each other in styling or feel–the Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 have their own distinct personality, body, interior design and package, and driving dynamics. So don’t be tempted to say they are the same car: One with a roof and one without. The Supra is every bit the slick Toyota you expect it would be and should be.” -Chris Walton, author from MotorTrend

    Don’t be harsh on the car guys, the car is as good as how the driver is.

    • Lucius

      Toyota has presented us with a “sports car” offered only with the kind of drivetrain you’d find in a Buick crossover…..I’m gonna be harsh on it.

  • Harry_Wild

    The new Supra redesign front end looks much better after the accident!

    Even the Green Hell doesn’t like the front of the car, decides to put a patch to improve it.
