Gazoo Racing is the official developer for Toyota's racing cars around the world. But after they were done updating and preparing those vehicles, the engineers from GR received other tasks such as creating a sportier version for the Yaris and the Supra.
Many Toyota fans were enraged by the fifth generation of the Supra since it shared many components, including the engine, with the Germans from BMW. But on the outside, the two cars couldn't be more different. Moreover, Toyota tried to pen the Supra with the fourth generation in mind. Thus, the long hood, low stance, and sloped-back greenhouse carried on its predecessor styling. None of these were lost or enhanced on the GR version. Still, the Japanese automaker introduced three new colors for it: Moareki Grey, Dawn Blue, and Matte Moonstone White.
Inside, the center console had to be revised to make room for the gear stick since the GR Supra was available with a six-speed manual transmission. Moreover, the carmaker added an Alcantara pack for the gear knob and gaiter.
But the most important change was under the car's skin. The base engine was a two-liter, turbocharged powerplant good for 252 horses (255 PS) with an option for the already known inline-six, 3.0-liter, and 377 hp (382 PS) version. Both were available with a six-speed manual, while the latter was also provided with an eight-speed automatic.
