Japanese automaker Toyota has repeatedly held testing of the sports car Supra GR, but never published an official lap time. To correct the situation decided the publication Sport Auto, pilot who made the race on the “Nordschleife”.
Test driver German publication Sport Auto Christian Gebhardt drove at the Nurburgring in the new Toyota Supra GR. Sports car broke the circle 7 minutes for 52.17 seconds, according to Auto Informant with a link to the website of the publication.
The fifth-generation coupe managed to beat the BMW M2 Competition, which was a circle for 7 minutes of 52.36 seconds, and the platform of the BMW Z4 Roadster M40i, showed the result of 7 minutes 55 seconds.
Note that the new Supra has a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo engine capacity of 340 HP, which is mated to an automatic transmission. The car is primarily targeted on the city roads and not the track. In this regard, the time that car showed on the track, is pretty impressive.
