NEW SUPRA TO GET GAZOO BRAND­ING

Autocar - - TOKYO MOTOR SHOW -

Toy­ota’s new Supra sports car will go on sale in 2019 – un­der the name of its newly launched road car per­for­mance arm, Gazoo.

In­sid­ers re­vealed in Tokyo that the car is un­der­go­ing fi­nal test­ing and will be used to build aware­ness of Toy­ota’s emerg­ing per­for­mance arm, Gazoo Rac­ing. The lim­it­ededi­tion Yaris GRMN, on sale next year, is the only Gazoo prod­uct pre­pared for sale in Europe to date.

In ad­di­tion to the hy­brid range-top­per, it is thought likely that the Supra will also be launched with the op­tion of 243bhp four-cylin­der and 328bhp six-cylin­der en­gines de­rived from BMW, which has de­vel­oped the Z4 on which the new Supra is based.
