Performance details about the upcoming Toyota Supra have emerged during an interview with the car's head engineer Tetsuya Tada.

Speaking with British publication Autocar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Tada said “ I can’t disclose specific figures, but the output of this engine is on a par with that which we have with the F Series from Lexus.”

It's expected the Supra will be powered by one of BMW's 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines. In the M2 it's good for 272kW and 450Nm, but the recently introduced M2 Competition upped that to 302kW and 550Nm.

Tada added: “But you can imagine from seeing it that the car is light and compact – its wheelbase is even shorter than the GT86’s.” 

Further, Tada went on to comment on the car’s weight saying it's “around 200-300kg lighter than the F Series”,  which working off the current RC F 1795kg weight, indicates the Supra will likely tips the scales at approximately 1500kg – on par with the 1496kg figure leaked in February.

The new Toyota Supra is expected to be officially revealed by the end of September. Once it goes on sale, it will rival the likes of the BMW’s M2 and platform-mate the new generation Z4.
