The Toyota Supra launches this week and we have pricing. Here's how much the Japanese sportscar will cost.
Under that curvy and striking body is a 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged 6-cylinder motor. It produces 250 kW and 495 Nm. Power goes to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and Toyota claims that it's offering will hit 100 kph in just 4.1 seconds.
It's the under-the-skin details which have us interested. Toyota is claiming a 50/50 weight distribution, high structural rigidity, and a low center of gravity which should make for an entertaining drive. While the platform is shared with BMW, Toyota tuned the spring and shock absorber settings for the new double-joint spring strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. Toyota also set specific parameters for the Supra's stability control system performance. Adaptive Variable Suspension is standard and features 2 modes: Normal and Sport. There is also an active differential.
Toyota is marketing its new Supra as a premium Grand Tourer and there will be considerable premium features fitted like Keyless Smart Entry, dual automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, rear camera, rain sensor windshield wipers, garage door opener, power folding mirrors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel will be standard. There will be a high-end multimedia setup, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay as well as a JBL audio system, but we're going to wait for official local confirmation to see what SA-spec Supras will receive in terms of tech.
We'll be driving the Toyota Supra in SA this week, and we'll have final confirmation of specification and features then, as well as a launch review.
