Less is better, these advanced wheels are 1.2 kg lighter per unit than the older model. The next touch is the addition of a choice of body colors, namely Matte Mineral White, Portimao Blue and Sparkling Cupper Grey.
The cockpit design of the New GR Supra is also said to be driver-oriented. However, customers still feel comfortable because there is an electric seat adjustment so that the right combination of sitting position is obtained between racing and touring needs.

The New GR Supra carries a powerful inline 3,000 cc 6-cylinder engine capable of producing 350 PS of power at 5,000-6,500 rpm and 500 Nm of torque at 1,600-4,500 rpm. Twin-scroll Turbocharger is claimed to ensure the engine is able to channel the best power in each engine speed range to the 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with tight gear ratios.
