Several new Toyota Supras in Hungary received extensive damage while still sitting on the car transporter taking them to showrooms. The cause of the incident remains a mystery, but photos provide a great look at the destruction. 


The truck driver may have caused the crash by backing into something. Alternatively, something tall, like another semi-truck, may have hit the car hauler. Regardless of the cause, the damage mostly occurred on the lower level of the transporter. The dark gray Supra down received a hard hit to the rear corner that was enough crumple the bodywork, destroy the taillight, and shatter the back glass.

The situation isn't quite as bad for the white Supra on the transporter's upper level. The damage for it is mostly on the lower section of the rear bumper where sections of the bodywork are now gone. There's also damage to the exhaust, including bending the tip of one of the pipes by roughly 90 degrees. One taillight is gone, and there are scrapes on the trunk lid.

There was also damage to the red Supra on the lower level, according to Tire Meets Road. The photos don't provide a good look at things, but the gray car is likely responsible for at least some scrapes and scratches to the crimson machine's front bumper.

In the United States, deliveries of the 2020 Supra Launch Edition are now underway, and Toyota is getting serious about advertising the new model on television. If you don't have an order for the Launch Edition, it's still possible to get the similarly equipped Premium trim level for a starting price of $54,920 (after $930 for destination) or $59,744 for a fully loaded example with all the available accessories.
