Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has just unveiled and revealed all the nitty gritty details about the all-new GR Supra. It’s common knowledge to all car enthusiasts that the Supra is known for being heavily modified by the tuning community, especially the A80 generation, which was known to have its famous 2JZ pump out well over 1,000 hp just because the engine was so well built, it can handle so much power and punishment than what Toyota intended it to produce. Well, Toyota Motor Philippines has said during the Q&A session that they are currently evaluating whether to offer Toyota Racing Development (TRD) parts for the all-new Toyota GR Supra.
The folks at Toyota Racing Development created a plethora of parts for the Japanese-market GR Supra, though these parts are mostly aesthetic. These TRD parts are all made out of carbon fiber and Toyota says most of these are indeed designed to give the GR Supra better aerodynamics. The front spoiler helps increase downforce and reduce lift at high speeds and makes the front end lower by 14 mm. The side door garnish, which removes the faux side vent design, smoothly directs airflow to the rear, in which carbon fiber fins can be added for the rear diffuser, as well as a carbon fiber rear spoiler, which aim to increase the GR Supra’s downforce. Lastly, a set of black 19-inch forged aluminum alloy wheels complete the GR Supra’s menacing looks.
For now, these TRD parts are exclusive to Japan, but it won’t be long before this is also sold overseas. Assuming this comes to fruition, this is not the first time that Toyota Motor Philippines will offer TRD parts for its vehicles. Most of the local Toyota line-up has a set TRD parts available, such as the Vios. Back when the Toyota 86 was first released, Toyota also made the sports car’s TRD parts locally available, including a few upgrades to give it better handling such as stiffer springs.
