The fact that there is going to be a new 2016 Toyota Supra is not news anymore. We already know that the next generation MK5 Supra is going to be not only a beast of a car but also one of the most impressive cars out there, offering state of the art technology coupled with an incredible styling. We don’t know if it will be able to fill in the shoes of its bigger brother, the MK3 Supra but we do know that new Toyota Supra 2016 is going to be both faster as well as more fuel efficient, all with the help of a brand new type of hybrid powertrain.

The platform that new 2016 Toyota Supra will be built on will also be different comparing to its predecessor. While the first Supra was actually developed by Toyota, the new generation is going to be developed in cooperation with BMW, meaning that it will most likely share some parts of the engine as well as its platform with the next generation Z4. This isn’t a bad thing though considering the current BMW cars are one of the most impressive to drive models out there.

Under the hood of this $60k to $100,000 machine there is going to be only a single engine option available. The Supra is going to use a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 which is going to be very different than the original inline-6. This will be making all by itself around 340 to 360 horsepower and as much as 300 lb-ft of torque thanks to a pair of turbochargers. Coming to its aid are going to be two electric motors, each powering one of the rear wheels, allowing the Toyota Supra 2016 to send all of its power to the rear wheels. The total combined grunt should be more than 450 horsepower which is quite impressive for a hybrid. The performance will also be outstanding, with early reports suggesting a 0 to 60 MPH time of less than 3.6 seconds and a top speed of well over 190 MPH.

On the interior of the 5th generation is going to offer quite a bare interior which Toyota said is needed in order to keep the driving experience pure. There are not going to be many physical buttons but rather a 10 inch touch screen which is going to control most of the car’s functions. The seats are going to be racing car like and all the interior is going to be wrapped in leather.

2016 Toyota Supra exterior on the other hand will look amazing. The lines are inspired by those of a Formula One car while its front end will feature two big air intakes which are there to cool the intercoolers and to make it look great. The headlights are going to be slim and long with an LED defining the outer contour. Just like the concept, the production model of the Toyota Supra 2016 will come with 19 inch light alloy wheels in the front and 20 inch rims at the back.
