Toyota Gazoo Racing and McDonald’s Japan have recently formed an exciting partnership that’s sure to satisfy Japanese car enthusiasts and kids alike. Whenever you buy a McDonald’s Happy Meal, you can get the Tomica Toyota GR Supra for free for a limited time.
What sets this apart from the standard Tomica GR Supra you can get at your local toy store? That would be its more detailed headlights.
In contrast, the standard Tomica number 117 Toyota GR Supra’s headlights are only painted in silver without any three-dimensional effects.
To promote this collaboration, Toyota Gazoo Racing and McDonald’s Japan have also created a collaboration movie, which will be released on April 28, 2020. The short movie will feature the HKS GR Supra drifting around what seems to be giant versions of McDonald’s famous food items such as its french fries and the Big Mac.
The Toyota GR Supra (A90 generation) is a successor to the iconic A80 Supra, which has known to reliably handle insane amounts of power when extensively modifying its iconic 2JZ inline-6 engine. Despite being a collaborative effort with BMW, Toyota Gazoo Racing developed the Supra’s chassis in their own direction, letting the Supra offer a completely unique driving experience from the BMW Z4. A two-mode adaptive variable suspension is standard, continually adjusting the rear multi-link set-up and front double-joint spring struts. Further aiding the Supra’s handling is its perfect 50:50 weight distribution. 19-inch wheels are standard, which are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires sized 255/35 R19 at the front and 275/35 R19 at the rear.
Another advantage that the Supra might have over its German sibling is its structural rigidity. It’s already given that a coupe will have better structural rigidity than a convertible, but the more surprising fact is that the GR Supra is not just stiffer than the Toyota 86, but it even exceeds that of the Lexus LFA. Yet, this was achieved by Toyota’s engineers without the use of carbon fiber. Astonishing, we must say.
Toyota Motor Philippines is currently selling the GR Supra at P4,990,000–well below that of the BMW Z4 M40i’s. This, however, is if you select the standard Prominence Red paint. If you want Lightning Yellow, Black Metallic, White Metallic, Silver Metallic, Ice Gray Metallic, or Deep Blue Metallic, you need to shell out P60,000 more. The most expensive color is Matte Storm Gray which is an additional P100,000.
