Toyota GR Supra priced at $64,990
The two-seater sports coupe is the first Toyota to earn the “GR” badge
The Toyota Supra returns to Canadian showrooms for the first time in more than 20 years, as the fully-loaded 2020 Toyota GR Supra prepares to turn heads and bust records on Track Days this year priced at $64,990.
The 2020 Toyota GR Supra is an iconic marque from Toyota’s history, brought forward into the future.
This two-seater sports coupe is the first Toyota to earn the “GR” badge – signifying that it has been track tested and fine-tuned by GAZOO Racing, Toyota’s in-house motorsports team, which counts Toyota’s global president, Akio Toyoda, amongst its drivers.
The GR is lightweight and rigid with 50:50 balanced body wrapped around a high-performance powertrain. With a low centre of gravity, and 335 hp plus 365 lb/ft of torque delivered to the rear wheels, the Supra is ready to put all challengers in the rear-view mirror.
It starts with a 3.0-litre inline, six-cylinder gasoline engine, enhanced with direct injection, variable valve timing and a twin scroll turbocharger.
The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic that delivers lighting-quick up and downshifts, enhanced with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual control.
Short ratios for the lower gears and a Launch Control function enable powerful acceleration and maximum traction, with an estimated 0-96 km/h time of just 4.1 seconds.
A limited slip active differential on the rear axle uses an electric motor and multi-plate clutches to minimize understeer and oversteer, as well as controlling lateral torque when cornering – even when accelerating or braking – to enable greater momentum and control through turns.
The 2020 GR Supra is fitted with an extensive list of standard features starting with a 425-Watt 12-speaker Premium JBL Display Audio system with 8.8-inch screen, integrated Sirius XM Satellite Radio and untethered Apple CarPlay.
A new Toyota Supra Connect feature enables a full-service concierge service, remote locking/unlocking, embedded navigation with over-the-air updates, automatic collision detection with SOS and roadside assistance, stolen vehicle locator and more.
Additional technology features – standard on every model – include a fully digital gauge cluster and head-up display.
