The speed test took place on the German autobahn - a high-speed track where you can drive at the highest possible speed. A new generation of Japanese sports coupe showed a top speed of 263 km / h, and then an electronic speed limiter came on.
Due to the fact that the Japanese sports car Toyota Supra 2020 model year is beginning to slowly go on sale around the world, on the Internet and especially on YouTube, more and more owners of new items boast of their valuable acquisition. Car blogger Shmee recently posted a video on YouTube that shows what a cult Japanese car can do on a German high-speed track.
Having chosen an empty and rather long stretch of road, the car was dispersed to 263 km / h - that was exactly what was on the speedometer.
As you all know, these devices are not entirely accurate, since they usually show a speed slightly higher than the real one, so the blogger used a specialized smartphone application that provides results based on GPS data to get a more accurate indication of the speed of the car.
When the maximum speed limiter came on, the actual speed of the Supra was 259 km / h. Interestingly, real speed measurements turned out to be slightly higher than officially declared, which are equal to 250 km / h. The same situation is with the power of the coupe engine, as various tests on the dyno stand showed that the in-line six-cylinder turbocharged engine has much greater power compared to the one declared by the automaker.
In conclusion, I note that now, Toyota engineers are creating more powerful versions of the Supra sports car of the A90 generation. There is no doubt that they will be noticeably more expensive than the performance of the machine that is currently on sale.
Toyota prepared special drones for Tokyo Olympics
The Japanese brand will hand over 20 unmanned e-Palette unmanned shuttles to the Tokyo Olympics in a special version of Tokyo 2020. All of them will ply the Olympic and Paralympic villages.
Toyota showed drones for the Tokyo Olympics, which will be launched along the looped route in the Olympic and Paralympic villages. On such unmanned e-Palette shuttles will be the participants of the Olympics, as well as attendants. Interestingly, when creating these drones, Toyota engineers took into account the wishes of the athletes themselves, and also focused on the features of specific places of operation. So, thanks to the prompts of the athletes, the e-Palette received large doors and electric sliding ramps - they will help Paralympics to fit in the shuttle.
Olympic drones, whose length reaches 5,255 mm, can carry up to 20 passengers at a time, including an insurance driver. Or seven people and up to four athletes in wheelchairs.
e-Palette has at its disposal a software and computer complex that, collecting information from cameras, laser rangefinders and a high-precision three-dimensional map, paves its route. The new Toyota drones have a fourth level of autonomy according to SAE classification. This means that the shuttles can move without the help of a person within the given boundaries. The drone can accelerate to 19 km / h, and its cruising range is 150 km. e-Palette has even been taught how to interact with pedestrians: its eye-like optics glow when a drone passes someone or replenishes energy.
