It didn't take long for someone to crash a Supra at the Green Hell.
It had to happen eventually, but we didn't expect to see this so soon because a 2020 Toyota Supra has already crashed at the Nürburgring. Don't worry, this wasn't a lucky person who somehow got a hold of a new Supra extremely early because this incident happened during the industry pool driving period, meaning a company representative was behind the wheel.
The crash happened at the Nordschleife's Exmühle section. The pod visible in some of the images is a way to conceal a damaged vehicle when hauling it away during the industry pool driving period. Automakers aren't keen on letting the public see their upcoming products, especially if the damage could potentially reveal secrets about a new machine.

Unfortunately, there are no other details about this crash. These photos only show damage to the Supra's front end, including having the front bumper torn away. The Exmühle section of the track includes a left-right complex of corners. The driver may have misjudged the line through this area and understeered into the track barrier.
The public can't get behind the wheel of the 2020 Supra until this summer. Prices start at £52,695 for the base 3.0L package, and the Pro trim level goes for £54,000 by including standard features like a larger 8.8-inch infotainment screen with navigation, 12-speaker stereo, head-up display, and heated seats.
Regardless of trim level, the 2020 Supra has a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six engine that produces 335 bhp and an eight-speed automatic with an active rear differential. An adaptive suspension is also on the standard features list.
