2018 Toyota Supra spotted with production front end (video)

The highly anticipated 2018 Toyota Supra has been spotted again in prototype form on the Nurburgring. This time wearing what looks to be the production design front and rear bumper bars.

We’ve seen prototypes before that featured a mostly covered up front bar, but these latest examples (two separate videos below) give us some clues on what the front end will look like. Particularly noteworthy are the gapping front air dams.

In the corners are some deep intakes and a big ‘missing tooth’ gap in the middle, perhaps influenced by the camouflaging wrap that stops in the middle. Up until now the designs of these elements had been concealed. Around at the back we also get a pretty good look at how it will be designed.

There appears to be a big integrated rear spoiler, similar to the last Supra, the MkIV, with long and thin Lexus LC-like taillights, nicely bulging rear haunches around the wheels, and some separated twin exhausts.

As far as we know the new Supra will be offered in 30i and 40i forms. These will, although not officially confirmed, comprise of a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder producing around 185kW for the 30i, borrowed from BMW’s lineup, while the 40i is set to receive the German company’s 3.0-litre turbo inline six.

In the first video you can just hear the engine which sounds a lot like the BMW straight six, while the second video seems to showcase the four-cylinder version. Check them out below. A full debut is expected to take place in the next few months.
