Performance and Specs

It takes strong will, determination, and a relentless spirit not just to finish the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, but to conquer it as well. The race has been dubbed as the “Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency”, so it is not surprising that it is already considered an achievement to simply finish the race. Toyota has taken it to the next level with Toyota Gazoo Racing conquering the race and claiming victory for the past three years.

The GR Supra is equipped with the same determination that has fueled the victories of these cars.

Toyota Gazoo Racing kept the pedal down for the 2021 model year, and they also boosted the output of the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine from 335 hp to 382 hp. It is an impressive 14% increase after just a year on the market. Torque was also raised from 365 lb-ft at 1,600-4,500 rpm to 368 lb-ft at 1,800-5,000 rpm.

In the second year of production, the chassis of the Supra 3.0 was also updated. The lateral rigidity was increased due to the lightweight aluminum braces that were added. They also added front and rear bump stops and new damper tuning. To make the Supra more stable through quick transitions like compound turns, they revised the program for the electric power steering (EPS), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Differential, and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS).

For the GR Team, however, updating the Supra was just not enough. In 2021, they added the Supra 2.0 to the lineup.

The Supra 2.0 was a new option for the clients to get an intermediate model between the GR86 and the Supra 3.0. It was given a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine though it shares a lot of its technology with the 3.0-liter inline-six like the twin-scroll turbo, direct fuel injection, and continuously variable timing on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The intake valve timing and duration is adjusted by the variable intake valve lift system. This results in 255 hp at 5,000-6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 295 lb-ft at 1,550-4,400 rpm. This enables the Supra 2.0 to go from 0 to 60 in just 5 seconds.

The Supra A91-CF Edition is another way for the GR Team gearheads to keep things interesting for 2022. The Supra lineup also had some welcome changes which includes standard heated seats for the 3.0 grade and the 3.0 Premium grade getting new red interior. All models with premium audio will also have full screen Apple Car Play® compatibility.
