With five generations across almost five decades, the Supra’s legacy continues to display power, performance, and innovation evident in this all-new Toyota GR Supra model we have today.
The iconic sportscar started out in the 1970s as a larger and more powerful version of the Toyota Celica. The first-generation Celica Supra had an inline-six engine and is one of the first Toyota models to get the electronic fuel injection system.
Up until the second generation in the 1980s, the Celica continued to share its name and DNA with the Supra featuring a more angular design from its predecessor. It finally became its own model by the mid-80s with the third generation featuring an updated 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 200 hp and the turbocharged version at 230 hp. Towards the 90s, the fourth generation got a redesign featuring a bolder look further inspired by the 2000GT. With its reduced weight and increased performance, the fourth-generation Supra’s turbo version is able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (96 kph) in just 4.6 seconds.
Seventeen years since the fourth generation was in the market, with some rumors, teasers, and the FT concept cars along the way, the fifth generation finally arrived in 2019. Developed under Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) in collaboration with BMW, the fifth generation carries “GR” in its official model name, proudly bearing the specialized research and development of high-performance cars that TGR continuously aims for.
The Toyota GR Supra has been developed inside out to offer a more powerful and luxurious driving experience and follows a design philosophy unique to Toyota and its engineers, creatively summing up the model’s athletic stance and aerodynamic look with the term “Condensed Extreme”.
Powered by a twin-scroll turbocharged, inline-6 3.0-liter engine, the GR Supra boasts a maximum output of 335 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Its nearly perfect 50:50 front to rear weight distribution provides optimum handling and cornering for the driver. Beautifully engineered from the 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and custom-made Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires to the double-bubble roof, Toyota envisioned the GR Supra’s design as a combination of style and performance for maximum driving pleasure.
Within the stylish sporty model is a luxurious black interior accented with carbon trims. The GR Supra also comes with Alcantara sports seats with an 8-way power adjustment for both driver and front passenger, an 8.8-inch infotainment system derived from BMW’s iDrive, and a 12-speaker High Fidelity Surround Sound System by JBL.
