As those who follow me may know, I had a lot fun driving the Toyota GR Supra last year. Now, the 2021 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 is here and it is more powerful and faster than its predecessor.
It still has that slick race car design with great aerodynamics that appeals to those of us who really enjoy the handling and look of a good sportscar.
The Power – Toyota GR Supra 3.0
The Toyota GR Supra 3.0 now has reduced engine compression ratio from 11:1 down to 10.2:1 to give it a boost of power. This upgraded version of the Supra 3.0 also boasts of a 382-horsepower output and 368 lb-ft of torque.
Built for Speed
Toyota redesigned the engine to pump out higher torque figures at higher engine speeds. You can feel the push of the engine, even while running at full capacity.
The motor now churns maximum torque from 1,800 to 5,000 rpm. The power increase results in faster acceleration from the previous model.
The Toyota GR Supra 3.0 can reach 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
Toyota fitted the new Supra with dampers, front and rear bump stops, and new aluminum braces to the strut towers to improve lateral rigidity.
Toyota also reworked the programming of the adaptive variable suspension, the electric power steering, the vehicle stability control, and the active differential. This all results in a car that takes on curves and corners with grace and ease.
