Supra's descendant will come equipped with hybrid power
According to AutoExpress, a new hi-po sports car is on its way, which draws inspiration from the LF-A and will likely be equipped with the Lexus GS450h's hybrid setup. The 3.5-liter V6 produces around 340 HP and should dispatch the sprint to 60 in under five seconds. That, coupled with a seven-speed sequential box, should strike an interesting balance between sporty acceleration and above average fuel economy.
AutoExpress has said that the 30-MPG sports car will likely be shown at this year's Detroit Auto Show and will be priced to compete with Nissan's new GT-R.
