With DNA sourced directly from the legendary 2000 GT, each and every Supra has shared the same core fundamentals: an inline-six up front, Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) and a modern chassis. As Toyota’s purest expression of performance, Supra has redefined the sports car time and time again. And, as we prepare to launch the next chapter of Supra, let’s revisit the past to see how the marque evolved from grand tourer to pure driver’s car.
Toyota has taken excruciating measures to ensure that GR Supra not only has a nearly perfect weight balance, but also that its overall weight is placed in the right areas. To help achieve this, Toyota dropped the engine and transmission as low as possible for a low center of gravity. They also moved this powerplant as far back as possible, helping keep the car’s center of mass, well, in the center of the car, for optimum handling performance.
A wide platform contributes to overall vehicle stability, so GR Supra is engineered around its ultra-wide track width of 1595 mm/1590 mm (front/rear). This wide stance is matched to a precisely calculated wheelbase — creating what our engineers call the “golden ratio” — resulting in a chassis that delivers high-speed comfort, unparalleled agility and instant communication between road and driver.
GR Supra’s 8-speed automatic transmission is compact, lightweight and strong. Its placement has been precisely calculated to help optimize the overall center of gravity, and its components are robust enough to welcome the ferocity of 365 turbocharged pound-feet of torque. Intelligent computer control and precise gearing also ensure that this transmission works in perfect harmony with the engine to deliver explosive acceleration and maximum power to the road.
335 horsepower. 365 lb.-ft. of torque. One engineering marvel. The fire-breathing heart of Supra is its signature 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine. Smart technologies like a twin-scroll turbocharger, Variable Valve Timing and electric wastegate ensure that this engine provides plenty of power, instant response and one glorious exhaust note.
Because daily driving isn’t an exercise in maximum attack, GR Supra offers Normal and Sport driving modes. Normal Mode is perfect for your commute, offering a smooth ride, easy handling and effortless shifting. Pressing the button to activate Sport Mode transforms GR Supra into a true track-dominating beast, punctuated with a deeper, meaner exhaust rumble. All of GR Supra’s senses heighten, giving you more instant response and a whole lot more adrenaline.
