Yes, it has BMW stamped all over it but there’s more than meets the eye
The partnership between Toyota and BMW has so far facilitated the introduction of the new Z4 and, more recently, that of the new Supra.
Now, technically, the B58 six-cylinder engine powering the 2020 Supra is the successor of the 2JZ powerplant, except it’s created by the Germans.
Inside the new Supra, the 3-liter engine makes 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, enough to propel the sports car to 60 mph (96 km/h), from a standstill, in 4.1 seconds.
Inside the BMW Z4, however, the same engine makes 382 hp and 369 lb-ft of twist, but the Bavarian roadster is also some $15,000 pricier than the new Supra.
Sure, these are just some basic info on the Supra’s engine and we’d love to go into details but that would defeat the purpose of Engineering Explained’s neatly structured video.
