Toyota's new Supra sports car finally launches in South Africa this month with the Japanese automaker also unveiling a limited edition Hilux Legend 50 edition. Mazda's all-new 3 also debuts in Mzansi.
The Supra which was developed by BMW for Toyota is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged engine developing 250kW and 500Nm. It employs an 8-speed gearbox, and power goes exclusively through the rear-wheels.
Look out for more news on the Supra later this month.
While the Supra is unlikely to be a massive volume-seller for Toyota, the brand will launch a special edition of its ubiquitous Hilux bakkie labeled Legend 50, to celebrate 50 years of the vehicles presence in South Africa.
The Legend 50 will be available in 13 derivatives and pricing starts from R472 000 and tops out at R712 100. Buyers will note that the Legend 50 replaces the Raider models and can be distinguished by a black grille, running boards and bar stretching from the cab to the load bay.
