ToyotSupr sales have not yet begun, and someone has already managed to crash one of the cars: a sports car flew into the bump stop during races at the Nurburgring, as a result of which the front end of the coupe was seriously damaged.
The accident occurred on the Exmülle section, in a bunch of left and right turns. According to preliminary data, the driver made a mistake with the trajectory, flew out of the corner and crashed into the fence.
Who was behind the wheel is unknown. The accident did not happen during the track days: the track was closed for car manufacturers. That is, the sports car was brought to the track by Toyota itself. After the accident, the car was loaded into a closed trailer and evacuated from the track.
- ToyotSupr will go on sale this summer. The sports car, which is the closest relative of the new generation BMW Z4, is equipped with a three-liter inline-six with a capacity of 340 horsepower, which is paired with an eight-speed automatic. There will also be more modest engines: two-liter turbo-fours with a capacity of 197 and 258 hp.
The Russian annual quota is limited to only 22 cars. The sports car will reach us in the second half of the year. Buyers are promised a personal manager and individual drift master classes.
