Just When You Thought the Reimagined Supra Couldn’t Get Better
It’s only been a few short years since Toyota’s beloved Supra—one of the most coveted and lauded street racers of all time—was reintroduced to the streets, and already we’re seeing new iterations with tons of new upgrades hitting the streets nationwide. With more power, racier design, finely tuned suspension, and driving response that can withstand any corner on Earth, the Supra just keeps getting better. And now, there’s an all-new, better-than-ever, maybe the best yet Supra to chew up the asphalt and dominate the competition. Ladies and gentlemen, witness the new Toyota GR Supra.
Going Gaga for Gazoo
If you know anything about Toyota, then you are no doubt familiar with the brand’s TRD packages. That is Toyota’s racing and performance arm, “Toyota Racing Development,” which has long taken normal Toyos and upgraded them with a bevy of high-performance packages, whether off-road or on. But there’s a new badge in Toyota town, one that brings a whole new level of excitement, one that true Toyota fans have had an eye on overseas for a few years now, and one that is now available on the all-new GR Supra. The “GR” stands for Gazoo Racing and picks up where Toyota’s racing arm leaves off. In fact, “Gazoo” means garage, and everything about the new Supra is both inspired by and created for those tuners who spend untold hours in the garage, whether it’s trackside or right at home, trying to coax every bit of extra power or grip out of their cars. With the GR Supra, the engineers and designers at Toyota have done it for you.
More Power Means More Action
The base GR Supra model comes loaded with a thrilling 2.0-liter twin-scroll single-turbo inline four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 255-horses that’ll hustle from zero-to-sixty in a brisk 4.7 seconds. Plenty thrilling for your average sport coupe and more than enough for the recreational or even semi-serious racer. But now, thanks to the folks in the Gazoo department, you can get behind an all-new 3.0-liter iteration that features a twin-scroll single-turbo inline six-cylinder that can make up 382 horsepower and motivate you from the line, straight to sixty in an absolutely stunning 3.7 seconds. Those are the kinds of numbers that put the GR Supra just a hair below European Supercar telemetry and easily rivals that of Porsche and BMW. (And the fuel-economy-conscious drivers in the room will note that even with all of those horses, it still manages to earn a best-in-class 30 mpg on the highway and 22 in the city!)
Thank You, Gazoo!
So there it is. Thanks to an all-new, never-before-seen package, one of the greatest racecars of all time just got even greater. The GR Supra. Come and get some vroom.
