THE NEXT GENERATION SUPRA.
Confirmation that Toyota is progressing with the sports car being developed in association with BMW is coming these days from both Japan and Germany. In the past three years, BMW and Toyota have made repeated public announcements about their joint technology development programs for hybrid and Fuel Cell propulsion system and last year they agreed to also look at the joint development of a sport car platform.
Reportedly the project has confirmed its feasibility and two sports car of different character are in the pipeline, although still far from official unveiling.
From Parkour to Parcour.
Fabrizio Giugiaro made a rather thrilling statement, at the launch of its Italdesign Parcour concept-car, according to Automotive News Europe. He, reportedly, said: «Parcour was devised as a new way of living and experiencing a metropolitan route creatively», whatever that might mean. I assume he was referring to the potential of the supercar, rather than the actual creative use of it in megacities like Paris, New York where the Parkour «art of movement», the art of overcoming obstacles is a non-competitive sport. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkour).
Those guys do it with their own muscle not with the 540plus horsepower of the Parcour engine. The agile look of the Parcour speaks for itself and is full of promises, as we should consider in a moment.
