THE LEGEND RETURNS
- The fifth generation of Toyota’s legendary sports car
- The first global GR model from Toyota Gazoo Racing
- Conceived as a sports car in its purest form, with no compromise
The all-new Toyota GR Supra is the fifth generation of Toyota’s legendary sports car and the
first global GR model from Toyota Gazoo Racing
The new Toyota GR Supra has been conceived as a sports car in its purest form, with no compromise that might diminish the pleasure of the driving experience. Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada has adhered to the classic form of a front-mounted, straight-six engine driving the rear wheels, building on the heritage of Toyota’s past Supra generations and original 2000GT sports car.
Driving enthusiasts can expect an exhilarating blend of power, agility and precision handling, delivered by the car’s combination of a short wheelbase and wide track, light weight, low centre of gravity and highly rigid body.
The 3.0-litre engine is fitted with a single twin-scroll turbocharger and produces 335bhp and 500 Nm of torque. Coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it is characterised by smooth and powerful acceleration, with large amounts of torque available across the full spectrum of engine speeds.
Toyota Gazoo Racing was instrumental in honing the new sports car’s performance, working extensively on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife and surrounding roads in Germany to achieve the most agile, stable and rewarding handling possible. Further extensive testing was carried out on roads around the world.
To be certain that the car delivered on its promise, Toyota President Akio Toyoda put it to the test at the Nürburgring in his role as a Master Driver before giving it the final green light.
New Toyota GR Supra deliveries to UK customers will start from September 2019. All cars are being manufactured in Graz, Austria.
