New 2019 Toyota Supra: official images and details revealed

Back in July 2018, a low, long-hood sports auto wearing camouflage with mysterious "A90" markings blasted up the narrow, curvy Goodwood hill climb during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. After much speculation in recent weeks, the fifth generation of Toyota's legendary sports vehicle has finally been unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Built alongside the Z4 in Graz, Austria, first deliveries of the GR Supra are due by late summer, with a limit of 900 cars in Europe in the first year, on an expected price tag of around £50,000.

Both the 3.0 and 3.0 Premium grades will feature the same 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine that makes 335 hp (340 PS) and 365 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. The auto also has an 8-speed automatic transmission with racing-style paddle shifters. One notable Bring a Trailer sale saw a late-era Supra with just 7,000 miles on the odometer sell for $121,000, while a similar '94 Supra went for $80,500 earlier past year. Toyota is claiming a zero to 100kmph acceleration time of 4.1 seconds.

The new Supra takes some cues from predecessors such as the 1965 Sports 800 (a tiny two-seat coupe similarly at home on the road and on the track), the 1967 Toyota 2000GT (they each have "double bubble" rooflines), and the 1990s-era Supras with much same body style (prominent front grill, hatchback rear) as the one unveiled in Detroit.
