Toyota has finally lifted the veil off its enhanced GR Supra which also comes equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Part of the enhancements include a more matured chassis for refined driving performance, enhanced handling performance and ride comfort through improved steering and suspension as well as modified stabilizer bushings for an improved initial steering response.
Toyota has also revised the Supra’s chassis control systems for better overall steering feel and control.
The new Supra runs on newly-designed 19” forged aluminium wheels with revised spoke and cross-sectional shapes for lighter weight and higher rigidity. Toyota says each wheel saves 1.2 kg which adds an advantage to ride comfort and handling stability due to the reduction in unsprung weight.
The Supra comes in three exterior shades; Volcanic Ash Gray Metallic, Dawn Blue Metallic and new matte Avalanche White Metallic for a limited quantity of the manual model. There is also a new tan interior trim that can be had as a manufacturer option for the manual model.
Furthermore, Toyota has improved the sound quality using optimal sound tuning of the JBL Premium Sound System.
And speaking of the elephant in the room, Toyota’s Supra houses a 6-speed manual transmission with an iMT system for optimal computer-controlled engine speed. It is powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine with 285 kW and 497 Nm of torque.
Order books for the manual transmission-equiped Toyota Supra will open in May with local introduction earmarked for the third quarter of 2022.
If you’d like to see it, it will be on display at this year’s Festival of Motoring in August. Both auto and Manual variants will be offered with pricing announced at launch timing.
