2020 Toyota GR Supra

HOW much do you want a shiny new 2020 Toyota GR Supra? Toyota Australia has officially revealed the pricing and sales process, with the range starting at $84,900 plus on-roads for the GT and $94,900 plus on-roads for the GTS.

Available to order from 19 June, with delivery in September, the GR Supra will be offered in just these two specification levels, and is powered by a 250kW/500Nm twin-scroll turbo 3.0-litre straight six. Just 300 cars will be available in the first 12 months.

Due to unprecedented demand for the reborn Supra and the limited volumes available, Toyota has developed a new online sales process to ensure a fair allocation of vehicles and give customers a unique experience.

Potential new owners will be able to log on to a dedicated website on 19 June at 12:00 noon AEST, to participate in the first round of vehicle reservations. This window will remain open until approximately 100 reservations are confirmed.

The online reservation website will use a randomised balloting process to allocate the first 100 reservations and these lucky few will then go on to complete the full registration process.

Successful customers can expect to receive confirmation of their reservation within 24 hours before receiving a phone call from Toyota’s dedicated Supra concierge. They will then be guided by the concierge throughout the purchase process.

Those who miss out in the first round, will receive information about timing for future reservation windows when they are determined. Multiple rounds are planned within the first year, timed to align with further availability of cars.

Customers will also be able to opt out at any stage prior to delivery, and the centralised ordering process will be the only way to buy a Supra, with sales management and deliveries handled by Toyota dealers.

As Toyota’s new performance car hero, the GR Supra GT and GTS variants arrive with a long list of standard comfort, convenience and safety features and a vast array of performance hardware to deliver an outstanding driving experience.

Drive to the rear wheels is through a new quick-shifting, sports-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission, with a launch control function that enables a 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.4 seconds.

To deliver outstanding handling and agile, dynamic driving characteristics, the GR Supra is fitted standard with an active limited slip differential and adaptive suspension.

A full suite of Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance features includes active cruise control (ACC), pre-collision safety system with pedestrian and cyclist detection (PCS), lane departure alert, auto high beam and traffic sign recognition.

Additional safety features include seven airbags, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear view camera, front clearance and rear parking sensors and tyre pressure monitor.

The high quality interior comes with a list of standard features that includes dual zone climate control; key-less smart entry and start; and heated, eight-way electrically adjustable leather-accented sports seats with power lumbar support.

There’s also an electro-chromatic rear view mirror; and a wireless phone charger. On the outside, styling is enhanced with LED lights, electric heated and folding mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels, with all features standard across the range.

Step up into the GTS variant though and you’ll also add high performance sports brakes, head-up display, a premium JBL audio system with 12 speakers, and larger 19-inch alloy wheels. The GTS also offers an optional Alcantara interior trim and matte grey paint.

The new Supra will be available in a choice of seven standard colours, plus that matte grey for the GTS, with each olour named after iconic racetracks from around the world, and chosen by Toyota employees.

The complete colour range is Fuji White, Suzuka Silver, Goodwood Grey, Monza Red, Silverstone Yellow, Le Mans Blue and our own Bathurst Black.┬áThe matte grey, well it’s called Nurburg Matte Grey.
