In a few days a new generation of Toyota Supra will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Toyota Europe announced on Twitter that during this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed we will have the opportunity to see the brand new Toyota Supra. Today, we received a press release confirming this information, together with an official announcement that the car will be racing for all 4 days of the festival, however, it will be a prototype version instead of a production one.

The car will have a camouflage shown in the pictures below, however, we will be able to admire it in motion. The car will start in a hill climb and will be driven by Testuya Tada, the chief engineer responsible for the development of the Toyota Supra, and Herwig Daenens, the main driver of the Japanese company.

After several leaks, Toyota has confirmed that the car will have a 6-cylinder in-line engine and that the power will be transferred to the rear axle only. This is likely to be a turbocharged 3-litre engine from BMW with 340 hp and 500 Nm of torque. This will allow to sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about 4.5 seconds.

There will also be a basic variant of the Toyota Supra with a 2-litre engine. The 4-cylinder in-line engine version is expected to have a power of about 250 hp and will run from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about 5.5 seconds.

Recently there have been rumours about the price of the US-spec of the new Supra. The car can be bought from $63,500.
