Here’s a new video from Germany’s Sport Auto magazine that shows journalist Christian Gebhardt steering a 2020 Toyota Supra around the Nürburgring’s tight corners in an impressive 7:52:17, all from a camera mounted in the passenger seat.
Interestingly, the feat comes after Gebhardt drove a BMW Z4 M40i, the sports car that shares much of its engineering and mechanics with the Supra, around the ‘Ring in 7:55:41 back in September 2018. That means the Supra bested its German sibling by three seconds and change.
The video gives us a nice sense of the exhaust note from the Supra’s 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six, which makes 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque and boasts a 4.1-second 0-60 mph time. Gebhardt briefly peaks at 260 kmh — 161 mph — during a long straightaway near the end of the course, which is higher than the car’s advertised top speed of 155 mph.
