Oh shit, in one of those clips it actually sounded like a BPU Supra.
It was a little hard to tell in the video, but this one has a different set of wheels. Maybe this is the high performance model?
Than we have these two.
Sounds really good. Nice exhaust crackle. Guy seemed to have a little problem exiting the same corner. A little loose. .... I like that.
Sounds like a DCT/Auto.
Looks like at least two mules are out running different wheels/brakes combo's. I noticed some prototypes are running single pot sliding calipers and some are runing a set of 4-pot BMW M Calipers similar to those found on the M2.
So I would expect a low blow entry level with around 330bhp and basic brakes/wheels, then a higher spec car with over 400bhp, 4-pot brakes and more aero parts.
I suspect that underneath the new body, the Supra is mostly M2 hardware.
These looks like the wheels from the M4 GTS, don't they?
Here is what the BMW sounds like. He noted that in the morning it started to rain so the car didn't go that fast.
One can only hope. I think the base model will use the B58 while the top of the line one will be fitted with the revise S58.
Unlike with the Z4, Toyota should definitely forgo the 4 cyl version.
this is definitely the best sounding test car to date. the two mule with the larger wheels are probably 6 cylinder models, pretty much the equivalent of today's 35i and 35is. the one with the 17in likely the 4 banger 20i/28i (hopefully not for US).
What do you guys think the latest spy video sounds like? I don't think it sounds like anything BMW currently offers.
And more spy shots of the latest prototype.
im thinking it sounds like a BMW I6.
(as the BMW blog article says it sounds like the B58 like the M240) I agree it does sound very similar especially the way it pops as the revs drop..
At least it sounds good!
Those tires look pretty big, at least bigger than what's on the M2. Would seem to indicate there's more power than the N55 or whatever. But who knows.
