The 2020 Toyota Supra launch is happening now, and journalists from across North America—including us—are getting their first crack at driving one of the most anticipated sports cars of the year. We can’t tell you what we think of it yet, but we can give you a taste of the media drive program straight from social media. Ever wondered what the Mk V Supra looks like doing a burnout? Well, wonder no more.
Although it shares its underpinnings with the 2019 BMW Z4, the 2020 Toyota Supra promises to be completely different from its German cousin. Developed separately due to strict German antitrust laws that prevented BMW and Toyota from working together, both cars were put through a rigorous testing regimen by their respective engineering teams. Power comes from a 3.0-liter turbo I-6 rated at 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. That engine is sourced from BMW and paired to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Unlike its grand touring predecessor, the legendary fourth-generation A80 Supra, the 2020 model (the A90) is a two-seat, rear-drive sports car. It weighs just under 3,400 pounds and puts more emphasis on handling than ever.
