Are you interested in becoming one of the first buyers of the 2020 Toyota Supra? For example, the transparent panel on the hood scoop of the FT-1 is unsurprisingly not on the production vehicle.

The image also gives us a proper look at the shape and proportions of the front headlights which are flanked by vertical air intakes at either side.

THERE will be much hand wringing and apologising at Toyota HQ this morning, as what appears to be pictures of the production Supra's front end appearing online.

We know, you're getting a bit bored with the wait for the new Toyota Supra, a vehicle missing from Toyota's range for 16 years.

The Supra is slated to make its global debut at the upcoming Detroit Autoshow in January 2019, where the world will hopefully be filled in on details of the powertrain.

The special-edition Supra, Toyota says, will be one-of-a-kind, and feature red mirror caps, red leather interior, matte black wheels and a matte grey exterior.

The Supra, which will be offered only as a coupe, will initially come with a BMW-sourced turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. With a steel and aluminium body, the new Toyota Supra also uses BMW M Active limited slip differential and tips the weighing scale at around 1.5 tonnes with optimal 50:50 weight distribution. A carbon-fiber badge on the interior will indicate its status as the first 2020 Supra.

If so, then we have some good news, because Toyota will be auctioning off the very first production example of the sports vehicle. Proceeds of the sale will be shared by the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
