The wait is almost over for one of the most anticipated new car arrivals of the year.

The reborn Toyota Supra made its first public appearance in final production form at the annual Goodwood Festival of the Speed in England yesterday.

The Japanese car maker is still keeping the car under a mild cloak of secrecy by wearing a camoflagued wrap to disguise its finer details, with the coupe set to drop its mask within the next month or so ahead of its international launch program beginning in September.

The car was driven up the Goodwood hillclimb course by chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, the man also responsible for the smaller 86 coupe.

Toyota has yet to confirm full mechanical details of the Supra, but it will be powered by a 3.0-litre turbo charged six-cylinder shared with the BMW Z4 it is being jointly developed alongside.

It is expected to produce around 250kW in basic trim, and drive the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic, giving it the ability to accelerate from 0-100km/h in under five seconds.

The new BMW Z4 is scheduled to be revealed at the annual Pebble Beach Concours in California at the end of August. The Supra could also shed its camoflague there considering the popularity of the Supra - and potential sales - in the United States.

Stay tuned for more details on the 2018 Toyota Supra.
