The 2020 Toyota GR Supra GTS is one of the most talked-about sports cars of recent memory and we recently spent a week with one in Australia. Before we publish our full review of the new-age Supra, we want you to Ask Us Anything you may want to know about the car.
The Aussie range consists of the Supra GT and the Supra GTS. As you can probably guess, the GTS sits atop the family tree and adds features including a head-up display, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, sport brakes with red calipers, a 12-speaker JBL audio system, and various Alcantara trim packages.
Our test car was bathed in a stunning shade dubbed Nurburg Matte Grey which is the same as Phantom Matte Gray in the U.S. market. The paint finish beautifully accentuates the lines of the Supra, particularly its swollen rear wheel arches and turned heads wherever we went.
All Toyota Supra models sold in Australia come outfitted with BMW’s B58B30 six-cylinder engine that displaces 3.0-liter and features a single twin-scroll turbocharger. Unlike in Europe and Japan, there’s no four-cylinder turbo in sight Down Under. The 3.0-liter is good for 250 kW (335 hp) between 5,000 rpm and 6,000 rpm with torque sitting at a cool 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). We all know those numbers are a little conservative, however.
Mated to the engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission powering the rear wheels. This transmission may ‘only’ feature a single clutch but it zips through the gears with serious pace.
