New supra finally seen in the flesh/metal!

Recommended Posts

We nipped to Lexus Leeds to look at a replacement M2 for the other half, whilst there, (next door is Toyota) and sure enough a Supra at the front of the showroom.

 

Sadly didn't get a chance to go in and take a look, sit in it, but honestly , underwhelming car. I only noticed it being a petrolhead that I am on the way out.

 

Its teeeeny weeeny , 1990s style wheels you could probably buy cheap off ebay.

 

The front just looks so boring, again 1990s . Yes I get it they are trying to recreate their 90s heyday.

 

Its like Toyota version of an old 90s raver , still thinks he is cool but is bald fat and looks like Daddy pig.:lol:

 Aceeeeed......

 

Shame. I am sure it handles well and everything else and is no doubt a piece of exceptional engineering, you wouldn't notice it unless you were looking for it so to speak. Ironically the Z4 stands out more.

 

:surrender:

In the flesh, they're stunning imo. Saw a pair at C&M on Sunday and wow, I'd love one one day - not slow either.

I just wasn't that impressed especially with all the fanfare around it? Maybe as it was a dull day and it was in a dark blue colour? 

Like I said its probably superb engineering but just didnt do anything for me? Must be an age thing.:lol: I'll get my cocoa!

Going to look on weekend to see what the fuss is about. I rather have the Z4 M40i. Looks way better. One guy is trying to cash in putting it up for £65,000

 

Good luck with the sale :lol::lol:

Have to agree with stan. Saw it at japfest, definitely underwhelming

I saw one at Japfest "Oh is that the new Supra"?

 

Had a look round it, really wasn't impressed at all. "Underwhelming" is spot on :thumbs: Noticed the one at C&M on Sunday and didn't even give it a second glance. Didn't even notice there was another one there :lol:

We are back on Saturday to Leeds will take a proper look and see if I can see inside? 

Not that I will be buying one anytime soon, happy with the Stang, although it does look very dated compared to all the futuristic Lexi (plural to Lexus)?

I've been trying to work out a way of stretching my car allowance to get one for work :lol:

I had reserved judgement till I saw it and love it, loose the Qashqai wheels in favour for some nice concave aftermarket ones and it'll make the car imo. Plus 12 sec 1/4 mile isn't too bad either.

Your photos make it look good davey :lol:

 

In standard guise it’s not all that but I think once they’re modded that would change

lol nice car, even though it stands out I dont think it has the road presence but it will be a headturner for sure.

 

Although I feel the Z4 better and more spacious, I have a feeling within a few months there will be something else to rival it for cheaper

For me, the biggest issue with it is the GT86 is a thing... And about half the price. That's a fair lump for aftermarket parts. :drive1

Agree with @davey_83 saw same one at caffiene and machine, first time seeing in the flesh, thought it looked quite good. Was surprised I liked it as not really a fan off the pictures I had seen or the old supra. (respect the old supra but don't actually like it, same with GTR)

However thought this modern day Supra looked good. (unlike the gt86 which is terrible)

Absolutely this, 350z in standard trim with touring wheels looks very underwhelming but some Teins new wheels/spacers and it looks a whole new beast.

Not seen one in the flesh yet, but hopefully soon.  I have seen some reviews of black ones and I think they seem to suit dark colours more... whether that says anything about the looks a dunno, but I think its a grower.  I'll reserve judgement until I see one in the flesh.

Don't normally like red for a sports car but imo this looks so good. Be interesting to see what Evolve Automotive do with their demo car.

I think the new Supra looks good. I think regulations have made the proportions what they are which is a shame because with a few tweeks it could've been a stunner!...........and drop a few fake vents too!

 

Toyota 2000GT is my all time dream car..........if I'd won the euromillions last night I'd be on the hunt for one today!

The FT-1 looked amazing! Not sure what this is


Yeah think that was the Supra before regs and accountants got involved! Shame eh!

Unfortunately concepts always ignore things like road regs, realistic aero, etc. so always look better than the finished product. I have to say in a couple of colours the Supra looks a bit tasty, loving the red.
