Australian pricing and specification details for the upcoming Toyota GR Supra have been officially announced, ahead of its launch in September.
Two trim levels will be offered, both with the same turbo inline-six but differing equipment levels.
Opening the range is the GT, priced from $84,900 plus on-road costs (around $94K drive-away). Standard equipment includes LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, eight-way power adjustable heated sports seats with leather accents, electrochromatic rear-view mirror, Qi wireless phone charging, heated electric folding exterior mirrors and an 8.8-inch central infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation.
Standard safety tech is aplenty too, with the base GT fitted from the factory with seven airbags, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, and tyre pressure monitoring.
Step up to the GTS – priced from $94,900 plus on-road costs – and you get larger sports brakes (348mm front and 345mm rear), red calipers, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, 12-speaker JBL premium sound system and a heads-up display.
GTS customers also get the option of ‘Nurburg Matte Grey’ paint for $2500, or red leather and black Alcantara combination leather trim (also $2500).
Speaking of paint, the GR Supra’s colours are named after famous racetracks – the full palette consists of Fuji White, Suzuka Silver, Goodwood Grey, Monza Red, Silverstone Yellow, Le Mans Blue and Bathurst Black (plus the aforementioned Nurburg grey).
All GR Supras are powered by the same engine: a 3.0-litre turbocharged BMW-sourced inline-six, which produces 250kW of power and 500Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, enabling a 4.4-second 0-100km/h time. An active rear differential, launch control and adaptive dampers are standard.
As for the buying process, customers will be able to place a reservation for the Supra starting June 19th at 12:00pm AEST, with a refundable $1000 fee. The order site will stay open until 100 reservations are received – the build slots will then be allocated randomly to those who registered. A Toyota concierge will get in contact soon after to confirm the customer’s desired trim level and colour, along with a further $4000 non-refundable deposit that will secure their order.
Just 300 units have been allocated for the first 12 months – so you’ll need to get in quick to get your hands on a car.
