Engineered with exceptional precision, offering the performance, body and soul of a true sports car, the new Toyota GR Supra.
Known as the car that started the Gazoo Racing brand of Toyota performance models, it is also a highly regarded one by long-time fanatics.
Its Malaysian launch was part of a collection of five, comprising the GR Corolla, GR86, Corolla Cross GR Sport and Hilux GR Sport.
Fully-imported (CBU) from Japan, the sports coupe is available in two variants, with two different transmissions.
GR Supra 3.0 M/T priced at MYR 645,000, and GR Supra 3.0 A/T at MYR 655,000. Prices are on-the-road, w/o insurance, plus a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
Eight exterior colours. White Metallic, Black Metallic, Prominence Red, Lightning Yellow, Dawn Blue Metallic, Volcanic Ash Metallic, Matte Avalanche White Metallic and Matte Storm Grey Metallic.
Weighing in at 1,578 KG (GR Supra 3.0 M/T), 1,600 KG (GR Supra 3.0 A/T), the new GR Supra stands at 4,379 MM long, 1,854 MM wide, 1,299 MM tall, and with a wheelbase spanning 2,470 MM.
Its entire design profile merges racing aerodynamics with a modern, powerful look that screams driving performance.
The rear end’s design is toned and athletic, with sleek lines and sporty elements matching the front’s outlook. Seamless, the body-moulded boot lid spoiler and black sporty diffuser with a dual exhaust setup, mixes nicely with its double-bubble sloping roofline.
Other elements, like the trimmings (Toyota/GR emblem, Supra script), and the very thin and slit-like top bumper-edge-curving air vents, complete the layout.
The headlamps are in an angularly-shaped eye design. Slanted inwards, they look very focused and ties the whole front together. They are adaptive LED units, with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and LED turn signals.
The tail lamps match the head lamps but in its own style, slightly slimmer and features an inverted ‘P’ light graphic. They are made of LED combination units, and have been paired to a set of diffuser integrated LED fog lamps.
The side mirrors are power-retractable and adjustable, with electrochromic (driver), reverse linked (passenger), memory function, and signal and blind spot indicators.
Fitted are Brembo brakes (ventilated disc with four-piston fixed calliper (front) - ventilated disc with one-piston floating calliper (rear)).
Gripping it to the tarmac is a set of new lightweight 19-Inch all-black multi-spoke forged alloy rims, wrapped in 255/35 R19 (front), 275/35 R19 (rear) Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.
The new GR Supra has a dashboard inspired by the layout of single-seater racing cars, designed to put the driver in the centre of action.

Space in the cabin is snug. Considering it to be a sports coupe, just enough head, shoulder and legroom is to be expected. The tightness is welcomed, as it hugs the occupants firmly.
Sufficient storage areas are present, including side door pockets, centre console compartments and a decent-sized glove box.
The three-spoke steering wheel comes in all-black leather, and gets multi-switch functions, tilt and telescopic adjustments, paddle shifters (GR Supra A/T), and an Electric Power Steering (EPS) system.

The suite of ADAS, along with the accompanying systems will make the sporty driving experience more exhilarating, and most importantly, safer.
It is installed with an 8.8-Inch central touchscreen infotainment system that comes with a touchpad remote controller, and supports Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, navigation, and vehicle status information and settings.

Positioned low within the cabin, the seats are ergonomically comfortable, delivering outstanding support and cushioning.
Then, the welcomed tightness of the cabin space lends the feel of a firm full body grip for the driver at all speeds and corners.
Elsewhere, it gets a retuned suspension, and more rigid vulcanised rubber in the front and rear anti-roll bar bushes for sharper handling.
Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) is at play, featuring double jointed Macpherson strut with stabiliser bar (front) and five-link with stabiliser bar (rear).
Overall, it is precise, quick and balanced, relaying adequate feedback to the driver, and provides a more refined cruising comfort and high levels of performance control.
It has good sound insulation, covering all the NVH aspects, and there are no abnormal wind issues at any speed.
The new Toyota GR Supra is a total driver car, with every aspect of its build inside and out, focused on performance.
Aesthetically, it also comes bearing a strikingly sporty and modern design inside and out, notably, the cockpit that’s racing-inspired.
Performance-oriented, check. Sleek design, check. Manual transmission, check. The GR Supra is a head turner no doubt, and an overall well-built, road racer.
