Toyota has faith Supra can lap The Green Hell in less than eight minutes

By Faiming_low on 21 Jan 2019 in New model

Attached Image Toyota Supra’s chief engineer reckons its latest sports car is able to lap the Nurburgring in under eight minutes.

Tetsuya Tada said that in an interview with American publication Road&Track and if pushed hard enough, the car should be able to post a 7 minute 40 seconds lap.

However, they have yet to go for an official time attack as the team believes the car's 250km/h speed limiter would steal valuable seconds off its lap time.


Tada-san said, “One day, perhaps, we cut the speed limiter and try the time attack. But even just driving it as it is, it’s really fast. On the old course, it’s very easy to break eights - 7:50, 7:40. It will do that easily.”
