    Overview

    The highly anticipated Toyota GR Supra is now available via official channel through UMW Toyota Motor in Malaysia with a minor refresh for the 2021 model year. Codename the A90, Toyota’s new performance sport coupé was first teased to the public as the FT-1 concept back in 2014 and it has been 21 years in the making since the iconic Supra nameplate last grace the road with the A80 Toyota Supra in 1993.

     01

    Toyota through its racing arm the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, has partnered up with BMW to develop the now fifth generation Toyota GR Supra. Underneath the expressive exterior, the Toyota GR Supra shares the same platform, engine, mechanical parts and a good majority of its interior with the latest BMW Z4. And unlike the previous generations Japanese thoroughbred, the new Toyota GR Supra will be assembled alongside the G29 BMW Z4 in Graz, Austria.

    History

    The Toyota Supra is a high-performance sports car produced by Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan from 1978 to 2002. Initially, the Supra was a luxury version of the 6-cylinder engine of the Toyota Celica. Starting in 1986, the Supra became a separate sports car that had nothing to do with the Celica. In the first generation, the Celica XX in Japan, or which is marketed under the name Celica Supra for export is the Celica Liftback whose wheelbase is longer to accommodate a 6-cylinder engine. 

    The machines available are M 2000 cc, 4M 2600 cc, and 5M 2800 cc. This car has 5 generations till now. for the Fifth Generation (2019-present) was introduced at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, United States on January 14, 2019. Production began in March 2019 and went on sale in Japan on May 17, 2019, in the United States on 22 July 2019 and in Australia on 2 September 2019. In addition, this car is also produced for the Asian region such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines etc.

  • Exterior

    Exterior 

    The new Toyota GR Supra exterior design is the direct result of Toyota’s 'Condensed Extreme' design philosophy. The 'Condensed' theme is evident in the relationship between its large-diameter tyres, short wheelbase and overall length, while 'Extreme' is demonstrated in the car's wide stance, with tight cabin proportions.

    Visually, the Toyota GR Supra is well proportioned, voluptuous and dare I say better looking than the BMW Z4. You can immediately tell of the driving configuration (front-engine rear-wheel-drive) purely by its suggestive long bonnet and a short rear overhang.

     01

    The lights were positioned inward as much as possible both front and rear to accentuate the fender volume, paying homage to the 2000 GT and the 1993 A80 Toyota Supra.

     02

    As opposed to the BMW Z4 retractable hardtop, the Toyota gets its very own unique swoopy double bubble hardtop and a seamlessly integrated rear lip spoiler. Its curvaceous silhouette is reminiscence of the works from Italian bespoke coachbuilder Zagato.

     03

    Fitted as standard are a set of 19-inch five twin-spoke two-tone alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. 255/35 up front and a wider 275/35 at the rear. Colour options available are the White Metallic, Silver Metallic, Ice Grey Metallic, Black Metallic, Matte Strom Grey Metallic, Lighting Yellow and Prominence Red.

    Upfront the performance car gets the full LED treatment for its headlights, tail lights, turn signals, reverse lights, daytime running lights, and fog lights. The headlights also come with auto high beam. At the rear, the Supra has dual exhaust pipes just below the bumper. It rides on staggered 19-inch wheels in order to maximize grip at the rear.

    Wheels

    The Toyota Supra has wheel sizes (aka rim sizes) including but not limited to 18 X 9, 18 X 10 or 19 X 9 inches 


  • Interior

    Interior

    Toyota GR Supra interior is heavily influenced by BMW. Though not identical, they share most of the parts with its German counterparts albeit with a simpler layout.  Like the familiar BMW i-Drive system, steering wheel, indicator stalks, transmission control, climate control system and down to the door handles just to name a few. Supra comes with a 3-spoke design that is wrapped in leather and comes with paddle shifters. The steering wheel has manual tilt and telescopic adjust functions, and contains audio and cruise controls.

     01

    Dashboard

    Up front, the driver is greeted by Toyota’s very own high-definition digital driver’s instrument display, one of the few Toyota parts found in the cabin. A central positioned tachometer and shift-timing indicator reminds you that you are in a serious piece of machine.

    Asymmetrical centre console envelops the driver while the padded pillars serves as a leg bolster when negotiating corner at speed. Black leather upholstery dominates the interior with carbon fibre trims. The 8-way power adjustable leather seats are racing-inspired, with integrated memory function for the driver.

    Space&practicality

    On the interior, some of the advantages of the Toyota Supra on the interior include the relatively spacious cabin size. So that users will certainly feel more comfortable, even though there are only two seats available. This is because this type of Toyota Supra car is included in the same type of sports car as the Toyota 86, so there are only 2 seats provided. The driving position is excellent with low sitting position but with less-than-ideal rear visibility. Interior space is adequate for two. For a performance sportscar, the boot is more usable than the humble 290-litre claimed volume suggests.

    Boot

    For the boot is still able to accommodate two large suitcases.

    Infotainment features

    There is a head unit measuring 6.5 inches touch screen. This head unit can be used to tune radio, bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple Car Play. The sound quality of this car is also quite good. Because in the interior there are 10 speakers spread over several points to spoil the ears of users.

    Comfort features

    The new Toyota GR Supra comes standard with adaptive headlights, racing inspired eight-way power-adjustable seats with memory function for the driver, dual-zone climate control, a head-up display, an 8.8-inch centre touchscreen control, a reverse camera and a 12-speaker JBL sound system. On the more technical side, standard equipment of the Toyota GR Supra includes Brembo brakes with ventilated discs, coloured front brake calipers with Toyota Supra logo inscripted, adaptive dampers and Electronically Controlled Rear Limited Slip Differential (LSD).

    Safety features

    In terms of safety, the Toyota GR Supra comes fitted as standard with a full suite of driver assistance systems, including Forward Collision Warning with Brake Function, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control (All speed), Speed Limit Info, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist(BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Tyre Presure Monitoring System (TPMS), and last but not least a 7 SRS airbag with front, front side, curtain and driver knee protection.


  • Driving Performance

    Powertrain performance

    Engine

    Powering the rear wheels is BMW’s ultrasmooth B58 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder twin-scroll turbo engine with direct injection, developing 388 PS at 5,800 rpm and 500 Nm of torque from 1,800 rpm. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h and century sprint is completed in 4.1 seconds with launch control function.

    In sport mode, engine sound changes and throttle response sharpened, accompanied by a more aggressive shift pattern, damping, steering and active differential performance. A special "track" setting can be selected which reduces the level of intervention from the Vehicle Stability System.

     01

    Transmission

    Power is sent to the rear wheel via a tried and tested 8-speed ZF automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Gearshift is smooth and refined but less performance oriented compared to the more effective PDK dual clutch transmission available in the Porsche 718 Cayman. Purist will be gutted to find that there is no manual version announced as of yet.

    Fuel consumption

    The Toyota Supra is capable of consuming 24 mpg of fuel or 10.2 kilometers per liter in urban areas, 31 mpg or about 13.1 kilometers per liter on roads outside the city, and 26 mpg or 11 kilometers per liter if the two conditions are combined.

  • Ride Comfort

    Ride Comfort

    The new Toyota GR Supra comes fitted with Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) featuring double-joint spring MacPherson struts at the front and a five-link axle at the rear. Paired with lightweight aluminium and steel composite frame with high body rigidity allows for a more precise and detailed refinements to the suspension geometry. The overall result is a surprisingly supple and comfortable ride but also sporty when pushed near its limit.

    The front suspension subframe and control arm mounting points have been made extremely rigid to ensure it corners with precision. A perfect 50:50 weight distribution is achieved thanks to the front-engine rear-wheel-drive layout which allowed for a neutral and agile handling characteristic.

  • Conclusion

    Conclusion

    The Toyota Supra is an iconic nameplate that has a rich history in Japanese car culture, mentioned alongside legends like the Honda NSX and the Nissan GTR. With the controversial BMW partnership, some may argue that the new Toyota GR Supra is no longer a purebred Toyota. But there is no denying that the Toyota GR Supra retains the original Supra spirit in its design concept and its overall execution. Putting the German influence aside, the front engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration with limited slip differential, paired with an effective 3.0-litre in-line-six engine, makes for a great driver’s car with high performance and great precision.

Toyota GR Supra has total 8 color options in Philippines: Red, Silver Metallic, White Metallic, Black Metallic, Matte Storm Gray, Lightning Yellow, Ice Gray Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic
