Another day, another Lego collaboration with an automaker. This time, the toy company collaborates with Toyota for the creation of the Lego Toyota GR Supra.
The Lego Toyota GR Supra is part of the brand’s 35th-anniversary celebration of the Supra nameplate. Painted in a shade of Lightning Yellow, or at least mimicking the GR Supra’s Lightning Yellow paint, the 1:1 Lego model is made out of 477,303 Lego bricks and weighs significantly more at 1,885 kg versus 1,640 kg for the real thing.
The exterior lights are functional, and as a matter of fact, the car is powered by electric motors, which makes it drivable, too. Flat out, the Lego Toyota GR Supra will top out at 28 kph. Not exactly as fast as the real thing, but still impressive nonetheless.
The interior is likewise made out of Lego bricks, but the seats and steering wheel are from the actual GR Supra. The toy company managed to recreate the interior perfectly, from the dashboard to the infotainment system and the center console.
The Lego Toyota GR Supra will be displayed at Legoland until October 11. After that, the Lego GR Supra will make special appearances at Japan’s Super GT race series.
The Japanese automaker also released two special editions of the GR Supra exclusive to Japan which is also part of the nameplate’s anniversary celebrations. Called the GR Supra RZ 35th Anniversary Edition and SZ-R 35th Anniversary Edition, only 35 units of each model will be sold in Japan.
Both models feature 19-inch matte black forged alloy wheels, matte black mirror caps, and red brake calipers. The RZ 35th Anniversary Edition is only available in Matte Storm Gray while the SZ-R 35th Anniversary Edition is available in 5 colors, including Lightning Yellow. And then as for the interior, both models feature a red and black interior with aluminum sports pedals and a 35th Anniversary carbon fiber plaque at the passenger’s side dashboard.
Engine choices remain unchanged for both special edition models. The RZ 35th Anniversary Edition is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbocharged gasoline engine that received an upgrade for the 2020 model year in Japan and other select markets. This engine produces 387 hp and 500 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the SZ-R 35th Anniversary Edition gets a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbo gasoline engine that produces 258 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Both are of course mated to an 8-speed automatic,
As mentioned, only 35 units of each model will be sold in Japan. Until August 31, it will be on a first-come, first-served basis. After that, the Japanese automaker will offer the vehicles via a lottery system.
