Spied! BMW Z5 and Toyota Supra Caught Winter Testing Collectively

Caught with its leading down, the upcoming BMW Z5 was captured winter testing in Sweden with its platform partner, the Toyota Supra. We have noticed both sports automobiles photographed in camouflage just before, but never ever together and not with the Z5’s soft best down.

Whilst the Toyota Supra looks almost identical to previous test mules, the camouflaged Z5 has some noticeable variations, largely in the rear finish. The taillights on this prototype seem to be close to production, with horizontal lamp housings as opposed to the round dummy lights worn by Z5 testers we’ve noticed in the past.

The previous spy shots captured the Z5’s modest trunk lid spoiler, but the latest shots show a more pronounced molded lip that contributes to a sportier-hunting rear end. The easy-looking small, round exhaust guidelines have been replaced by bigger oval-shaped ones, most likely similar to what the production version will have.

From the side, the new spy shots clearly show a new front fender, now with a vent proper behind the front wheels. This not only adds a far more aggressive appear but probably also reduces air pressure in the wheel nicely, like the Air Breather vents discovered on other BMWs.

As we previously reported, the upcoming BMW Z5, the replacement for the Z4, and the Toyota Supra will share the identical platform that is getting co-created by Toyota and BMW. Once finalized, both rear-wheel-drive vehicles are anticipated to be constructed by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.

Particulars on the powertrains have not been released, but expect to see turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines sourced from BMW, although there are rumors the Supra will pack a Toyota-developed twin-turbo V-six. There have also been rumors of a hybrid powertrain later in production.
