Future classic: Racer Townsend Bell chats about new Toyota Supra

The car has yet to be unveiled, but it looks to be on the future classic path

Much has been made about the new Toyota Supra, and IndyCar driver Townsend Bell has weighed in about the highly anticipated car that looks to have the makings of a future classic.

“When I was in high school, one of my good friends had a 1990 Toyota Supra Turbo; all white, it was an awesome car,” Bell said in a video uploaded to Facebook.  “It had performance, it had style. It was so distinctive. It was unmistakable.”

Bell said the new generation of Supra, which was co-designed by Toyota and BMW, will carry the torch of one of Toyota’s more desired cars nicely.

“I’m just getting to see this new Supra in its camouflage paint scheme and I have to say, at first glance, it’s very striking,” he said. “It follows in that heritage of being distinctive.”

While he was impressed with the looks, Bell also enjoyed the engine.

“It’s got a great engine sound, an off-throttle crackle that is undeniably a sports car and there’s a little bit of anger in there,” he said.

Toyota has been touting its new Supra for months, but a full debut isn’t expected until early next year.
