Toyota's hotly anticipated GR Supra sports car has arrived in Australia delivering exhilarating performance and reigniting a Toyota performance car heritage that stretches back to the 1967 2000GT.

The all-new Supra will spearhead Toyota's new GAZOO Racing performance brand as its first global model that was developed in collaboration with the brand's motorsports arm and offers the performance to provide a thrilling drive experience on the road or track.

Toyota Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley said the all new GR Supra used Toyota's learnings from motorsport and applied them to a stylish sports coupe that would give customers a taste of Toyota's true performance potential.

"The Supra has a long lineage in Toyota's sports car heritage and while it's been 17 years since the badge last graced a Toyota sports car, this all-new model offers the legendary performance traits of its predecessors and is very worthy of being the first global product under our GAZOO Racing brand," Mr Hanley said.

"Under the GAZOO Racing brand, we will deliver a whole raft of sports and high performance cars that will offer technologies and ideas developed under extreme motorsport conditions to provide a whole new breed of exciting and fun-to-drive Toyota cars.

"With its straight six turbo engine, rear-drive configuration, low-slung compact dimensions and perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the GR Supra has been designed first and foremost as a driver's car with no compromise.

"Priced from under $100,000, it also offers exceptional value rivalling far more expensive European sports cars with its truly engaging driving experience and high level of specification," he said.

Powered by a 250kW/500Nm turbo 3.0-litre straight six, the GR Supra is offered in two grades priced from $84,9001 for the Supra GT, with the top-of-the-range GTS variant starting at $94,9001.

As Toyota's new performance car hero, the Supra arrives 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 Normal and Sport modes and a launch control function that enables a 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.3 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.

Riding on 18-inch (GT) or 19-inch (GTS) wheels wrapped with specially developed Michelin rubber, the GR Supra features a low, wide stance and perfect 50/50 weight distribution to ensure the ultimate in traction, stability, responsiveness and balance for the road or track.

A comprehensive suite of driver assistance features includes active cruise control (ACC), front collision warning with brake function and daytime pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection2, lane departure alert, speed limit info (SLI) and active speed limiter.

Additional safety features include seven airbags, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear view camera, front, clearance and rear parking sensors with rear end collision warning (RECW), and tyre pressure monitor.

Befitting its premium status, the GR Supra's interior marries a high level of features with a contemporary race-bred design.

Standard features include dual zone climate control; keyless smart entry and start; heated, eight-way electrically-adjustable leather-accented sports seats with lumbar support; a 10-speaker multimedia system incorporating Bluetooth®3 connectivity, AM/FM/DAB+4 radio, satellite navigation5 and voice recognition; and a wireless phone charger6.

A step up into the GTS variant adds sports pedals, head-up display, and premium JBL®7 audio system with 12 speakers.

The GR Supra GTS is also available with two exclusive options - Alcantara interior trim and upholstery and a matte grey paint - each priced at $25008.

GR SUPRA DESIGNED TO DELIVER PURE SPORTS PERFORMANCE



** Optimised aerodynamic design for pure sports performance **
** Combination of aluminium and steel in body structure for lightweight rigidity **
** Classic long bonnet, compact cabin styling reflects Toyota sports car heritage **


Toyota has designed the all-new GR Supra as a pure sports car without compromise.

As a front-engine, rear-drive two-door sports coupe, its visual appeal lies in the classic shape evoked by its long bonnet, compact swept back cabin and low beltline.

It's a design that not only makes reference to Toyota sports car heritage - such as the double bubble roof that appeared on the 1967 2000GT - but has been created specifically with the aerodynamic requirements and balance needed for high performance driving on the road and racetrack.

Underpinning its sports performance is a chassis that measures 2470mm in the wheelbase with wide front and rear tracks of 1594mm and 1589mm respectively1.

These dimensions have been specified to deliver what Toyota refers to as the "golden ratio" between wheelbase and width to provide superb responsiveness, stability and agile handling.

Overall length of the GR Supra stretches to 4379mm, with the car measuring 1854mm wide and just 1292mm in height1.

To deliver such a low overall height, and subsequently the low centre-of-gravity necessary for true sports performance, Toyota dropped the running ground clearance1 below its usual standard minimum of 130mm to just 119mm.

From the bold front end, featuring slimline LED headlights and large openings necessary for cooling the high-performance engine, through to the sleek, low-slung side profile with its muscular rear haunches and rear punctuated by dual tailpipes, the Supra's styling perfectly marries its sports performance.

The car's design offers far more than aesthetic appeal though with its packaging providing a perfect 50:50 front/rear weight distribution and sleek bodywork optimised to reduce lift and deliver a low drag co-efficient.

Underneath, the engine, fuel tank and rear axle are fully covered while a number of fins, spats and undercovers along with side skirts help regulate airflow for better aerodynamic performance and straight-line stability at high speeds.

In addition to its aerodynamic properties, the body and structure of the GR Supra was designed to be both highly rigid and lightweight through the use of a combination of aluminium and high-strength steel. In fact, the torsional rigidity betters that of the ultra-high performance LFA supercar that was built on a carbon fibre monocoque chassis.

Tipping the scales at just 1495kg2, the Supra features an aluminium bonnet, doors and wheel arches, while the rear hatch is made from a composite of polypropylene and fibreglass.

Both the 18-inch machined alloys for the Supra GT and 19-inch forged alloys, standard on the Supra GTS, are fitted with low profile Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres that were specifically tuned for Supra and feature a bespoke compound to offer outstanding grip.

The Supra GT wears 255/40 ZR18 rubber on the front and 275/40 ZR18 tyres on the rear with the GTS using a lower aspect ratio tyre with 255/35ZR19 and 275/35ZR19s on the front and rear respectively.

The new Supra is offered in a choice of seven standard colours3, plus an optional matte grey for the GTS. These colours are all named after iconic racetracks to reflect its development by Toyota GAZOO Racing.

The names were chosen by Toyota Australia employees and include Fuji White, Suzuka Silver, Goodwood Grey, Monza Red, Silverstone Yellow, Le Mans Blue, Bathurst Black and Nurburg Matte Grey.

PURE AND SIMPLE: GR SUPRA CABIN DESIGNED FOR DRIVING



** Race-bred design offers clean stylish packaging focussed on the driver **
** Big bolstered power adjustable, heated sports seats with leather accented trim **
** Premium HiFi audio and multimedia systems with wireless phone charger **


Pure and simple: that was the design brief for the interior of the new GR Supra and Toyota has delivered with a cabin that focusses strongly on the needs of the driver.

It features a race-bred simplicity that is stylish and functional and made for ensuring high-speed stability for the driver and passenger with easy access to all the functional elements necessary for enthusiastic driving.

Up front, the thin dash that stretches across the width of the car and compact instrument cluster allow clear visibility through the windscreen and side windows to enhance awareness of the car's positioning at all times.

The premium three-spoke steering wheel measures just 373mm in diameter and is adjustable for both rake and reach to provide the optimum driving position.

It also features controls for audio, phone and cruise control and paddle shifters for the automatic transmission ensuring drivers rarely need to take their hands off the wheel.

In order to provide an instrument cluster that offers clear visibility and compact dimensions, the GR Supra uses an 8.8-inch screen that provides a digital speedometer, central analogue-style tachometer and multi-information display.

As a car designed for driving, both driver and passenger sports seats offer large body-hugging side bolsters, adjustable backrest width and lumbar support, eight-way power adjustment and seat heating for the optimum comfort and support.

The standard upholstery uses black leather with the option of Alcantara or red leather accented trim available for the Supra GTS.

The wide centre console offers handy access to the transmission shift lever, switch gear and cupholders and features a large integrated knee pad on the driver's side to offer additional support against lateral G-forces during fast cornering.

The highly supportive and comfortable seats in the GR Supra are complemented by further premium features including dual zone climate control, smart entry and start, electrochromatic rear view mirror, wireless phone charger1 and a USB power socket all standard in the Supra GT variant.

On-road infotainment is provided by the latest multimedia system with a large circular mouse-type controller to enable scrolling and zooming, located on the centre console.

The multimedia system with voice activation offers full Bluetooth®2 connectivity, AM/FM/DAB+3 radio and satellite navigation4, with all information displayed on an 8.8-inch touchscreen.

Superb sound reproduction is via a 205w 10-speaker HiFi sound system with a 7-channel amplifier.

A step up into the top-of-the-range Supra GTS version adds a 425w 12-speaker JBL®5 HiFi Surround Sound audio system.

The GTS is also appointed with sports accelerator and brake pedals and a head-up display.

As a sports car, the Supra is a compact two-seater but still offers ample storage space for a weekend away with a rear luggage capacity of 290 litres and passenger side glovebox with seven-litre capacity.

STRAIGHT SIX POWER FOR OUTSTANDING SUPRA PERFORMANCE



**Rear-drive 250kW/500Nm 3.0-litre inline straight six offers 0-100km/h in 4.3s**
**Smooth, close-ratio eight speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters**
**Agile handling with electronic LSD, active dampers and multilink rear suspension**


The Toyota Supra has long been associated with an inline six-cylinder engine so when the decision was made to resurrect the legendary sports car with an all-new model, straight six power was an essential ingredient.
 
At the heart of the new GR Supra is a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 250kW between 5000 and 6000rpm and peak torque of 500Nm from 1600 to 4500rpm.
 
Fitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger, variable valve timing and direct fuel injection, the engine delivers smooth linear power that enables the Supra to sprint from standstill to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds.
 
In order to optimise fuel consumption, the Supra is fitted with a stop/start system that helps deliver combined cycle fuel consumption figures of 7.7l/100km1 with CO2 emissions of 177g/km2.
 
Drive to the rear wheels is via a close ratio eight-speed automatic transmission that offers sequential manual shifting via the shift lever or paddle shifters located on the steering wheel and a launch control function for rapid acceleration off the line.
 
To ensure high precision cornering, handling and stability, the torque is delivered to the rear wheels through an electronically controlled limited slip differential that allows flexible torque distribution between the rear wheels of between 0 and 100 per cent.
 
With its race-bred focus, the new GR Supra's suspension has also been developed to offer outstanding handling and agility under all conditions and features a double-joint-type MacPherson strut arrangement at the front and multilink system at the rear.
 
The suspension has been designed to provide an outstanding sporty feel without compromising ride quality to give drivers the best on both the track and road.
 
This has been achieved through extensive tuning of components to deliver high rigidity and low weight to aid responsiveness and ensure the greatest ride comfort.
 
In addition to this, the adaptive variable dampers can also be set to Normal or Sport modes to further adjust to road and driving conditions providing the optimum balance between dynamic control and ride comfort.
 
Given the performance potential of the new GR Supra, high performance Brembo brakes have been fitted with large ventilated discs with four-piston calipers on the front and single piston calipers on ventilated discs at the rear. To highlight the braking performance, the calipers on GTS models are painted red.
 
The braking system also delivers peak performance through its various electronic assistance operations that include ABS, VSC, active cornering assist (ACA), and brake assist as well as having standby, drying and fade-prevention functions.
 
The steering too offers pure sports car performance with the electric-power assisted rack and pinion system providing a tight 2.1 turns lock to lock, superb feedback and variable assistance depending on vehicle speed.
 
As a car designed to deliver both exhilarating driving on the track or out on the open road as well as comfort through the city, the GR Supra's drive mode select offers a variety of driver-selectable options.
 
Normal and Sport mode adjust throttle response, steering weight, transmission shift timing, suspension damping and the operation of the LSD according to driving behaviour and conditions.
 
Either Normal or Sport modes can also be selected individually for each of the engine, transmission, steering and suspension characteristics.
 
A vehicle stability control (VSC) switch also allows the driver to run with full status, Traction mode, that suppresses the operation of the system slightly, or Off mode, that turns the system off completely.
 
While the GR Supra is designed for driving, Toyota has also ensured it is driving in the safest possible manner with a comprehensive array of driver assistance technologies3 fitted as standard on both grades.
 
These include all-speed active cruise control; front collision warning with brake function and daytime pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection; lane departure alert with visual, audible and steering wheel vibration warnings and steering assistance; and blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert.
 
A speed limit info (SLI)3 system detects certain road speed signs and displays the information on the multi-information display or head-up display (GTS only), while a speed limiter system enables the driver to set their own limit.
 
If the limit is exceeded, the system controls engine torque and the transmission to automatically suppress acceleration.
 
The GR Supra is also fitted with a reversing camera with guide lines and clearance sensors with rear end collision warning (RECW) to provide plenty of visual and audio information on the car's surroundings when parking.
