Toyota extends its Supra model line-up

January 10, 2021

Toyota’s GR Supra performance coupe line-up is growing with the introduction of a 2.0-litre model joining the 3.0-litre version that was introduced back in 2019.

The new 2.0-litre engine widens GR Supra’s market appeal and, being lighter and more compact than the 3.0-litre unit, improves the car’s inertia characteristics and chassis balance for even sharper handling.

Where weight is concerned, the GR Supra 2.0 weighs 100kg less than its 3.0-litre equivalent, a saving that further strengthens the car’s dynamic performance. The engine’s shorter length means its mass is located closer to the centre of the car, supporting an ideal front/rear balance and better inertia characteristics.

Although power is less – 254bhp/190kW – the engine’s performance is rewarding, supported by a muscular 400Nm of torque available across a wide range of engine speeds, harnessed through an eight-speed, rapid-shifting ZF automatic transmission.

The 0 to 62mph sprint can be accomplished in 5.2 seconds with GR Supra’s launch control system, and top speed matches the 3.0-litre model at an electronically governed 155mph.

At launch the new 2.0-litre GR Supra is offered in Pro specification and also in an exclusive, limited edition Fuji Speedway Edition.

The latter stands out with a unique white metallic paint finish for the bodywork with contrasting 19-inch matt back alloy wheels and red door mirror housings. In the cabin there are carbon fibre dashboard trim inserts and striking red leather and black Alcantara upholstery. The colour choices evoke those of the official Toyota Gazoo Racing livery.

Where equipment specifications are concerned, the Fuji Speedway also comes with all the features of the Pro model, but this special edition is limited to just 45 examples in the UK.

On-the-road prices for the new GR Supra 2.0 are £45,995 for the 2.0 Pro and £47,395 for the Fuji Speedway Edition.

UK sales and deliveries of the new GR Supra 2.0 began at the beginning of the month with first deliveries to customers expected imminently.
