We’ve been waiting a very long time for the new Toyota Supra but the Japanese carmaker isn’t ready to reveal the car in full just yet. Instead, we’re being told that a wrapped prototype will make its first public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.

To keep us hyped, here’s a photo of said vehicle, which will continue the ‘A’ naming series used on its predecessors based on the generous splattering of ‘A90’ letterings all over the camouflage. Also in view are the prototype’s wheels and brakes that look a lot like those seen in previous spyshots.

The rest of the vehicle is pretty similar too, with a tall nose, triple air intakes, vented hood, a double-bubble roof, slim taillights, lip spoiler and prominent headlamps. These cues aren’t much of a mystery as they are present on the GR Supra Racing Concept that was revealed in March.

The A90 Supra was co-developed in a joint project with BMW, where the Germans will introduce their new Z4. However, both cars will be very different from one another in terms of not just exterior styling but also the interior and chassis tuning.

It has been widely reported that the Supra will be powered by a BMW-derived 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six petrol engine that is available with only an eight-speed automatic transmission, with no manual option for the purists. A perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a centre of gravity that’s lower than the 86 have also been promised.

Now, take a seat and continue playing the waiting game while sharing your thoughts with us if the fifth-generation Supra will live up to the hype.
