Toyota South Africa Motors has released pricing for its new GR Supra, with the local range comprising three variants at launch.
A derivative described as the “GR Supra Track” will start at R953 000, while the standard GR Supra will come in at R1 072 300 (and be offered in a choice of seven colours). The third variant is the GR Supra Matte Grey, which will be R20 000 more at R1 092 300 and differs only by paint colour (featuring, as you might have guessed, an exclusive Matte Storm Grey hue). For the record, the BMW Z4 M40i is priced at R1 036 699.
While the GR Supra Track (seemingly available only in red) features items such as standard cruise control, a 10-speaker audio system and manual front-seat adjustment, the two other models boast adaptive cruise control, a 12-speaker JBL audio system, power adjustment for the front seats, a head-up display, navigation, seat heaters and wireless smartphone charging.
The top-spec models furthermore gain parking sensors, lane-departure alert, a pre-crash system, automatic LED headlamps and leather/Alcantara upholstery (the Track model features fabric), as well as adaptive variable suspension. Interestingly, only the flagship models feature Isofix child-seat anchors.
As a reminder, the A90-generation Supra – which was developed alongside the BMW Z4 roadster – is powered by the German firm’s turbocharged 3,0-litre straight-six, which sends 250 kW and 500 N.m to the rear axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
SA-spec models run on 19-inch alloys (wrapped in 255/35 R19 Michelin rubber up front and 275/35 R19 at the rear), sprinting from standstill to 100 km/h in a claimed 4,3 seconds and topping out at 250 km/h.
A four-service/80 000 km service plan (with intervals of 20 000 km) is included, along with Toyota’s three-year/100 000 km warranty.
