I know it's all camo'd out and such....and I know its still in testing phase, but I just can't see that "camo'd/production" car looking anything like the GR Supra Concept....I just can't. I hope they are making it look this ugly on purpose....because it just doesn't have nice lines in these pics. Again, I know this is a test car and it's packed with camo and fake panels....I just hope the real deal will look good....I really hope so.
Yeah, I have a hard time seeing it also. Hopefully it's under there somewhere.
It honestly doesn't look that bad to me, I'm interested in a camo-free look at this thing just to see how the body lines flow down the length of the car. The nose/tail don't look bad at all, I want one lol. Just give me a better 0-60 than 4.8 (slower than your predecessor) or a very, VERY mod-friendly drivetrain/tune-able ECU and I'm sold.
Not sure how you cant see the concept under the camo. Aside from the widebody and big wang, it looks pretty spot on to me.
The Blue front calipers and red rears is an interesting look lol.
Yeah for real! Looks the same, save for the stuff we know is racecar stuff. Overall shape, the integrated duckbill, the roof, the vents, overall length, etc. I'm actually surprised with how close the Racing Concept was to the prototype cars.
Yes, interesting... The brake and tire sizes just don't scream 340+ hp to me, more like 240hp. Thoughts?
It's on winter wheels+tires, and looks like it has the same brakes as the M240i in terms of size. Same front caliper but the rear appears to be a slider, which is typical of BMW brake setups.
If anything the brakes are more indicative of this car being light as opposed to underpowered.
Yep, the less unsprung mass the better.
Says the guy with giant brakes on every car lol
I like it, the front looks remniscent to the current 86
The side profile on this thing is very nice. The front looks awkward but I'm sure once the camo is stripped off it will look good
Typically bmw have decent wheel fitment too, so hopefully Toyota don't fuck that up.
Imagine it with a nice wide set of 18s and meaty tyres. Will look very tough.
Yeah, I also don't understand how people dont see this looking like the GR Supra Concept.
Looks identical to me! (Obviously minus the wide body etc).
They may not look huge, but if the weight they're claiming on this car is correct, then it would make sense for the calipers to be smaller and not gigantic.
For e.g. I drive an S15 and the brakes on those aren't really big. They stop awesome because of the light weight.
So as you can imagine, weight plays a big part with a lot of aspects in a car.
Good pics, looks pretty nice, although as noted winter wheels/tires so hard to see the actual stance, gap in fenders etc. blue BMW calipers...love the CB Antenna ha ha...In the first pic if you enlarge it you can clearly see the driver face, anyone know him?
Yeah, that's Jason Statham.
Keeping in mind, they're 17" wheels and the rotors completely fill the wheel space, meaning they're between 330-350mm in diameter. Not small by any means
