Toyota to launch Supra halo model in the UK this summer


Toyota has resurrected its Supra after a 17-year break with a new model that will go on sale this summer priced from £52,695 in the UK.

Toyota’s UK dealer network will have a dedicated Supra champion who will offer customers a personalised service, discussing their individual preferences and options.

The fifth-generation rear-wheel drive Supra is being shown off at the Detroit Motor Show this week. The new car will go up against premium rival models like the BMW Z4 and Porsche 718 Cayman rival.

The new Supra features a 335bhp 3.0-litre eight-speed turbocharged engine mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. A launch control function enables acceleration from from rest to 62mph in 4.3 seconds.

The car was developed by Toyota’s Gazoo Racing, its World Rally Championship factory team.

There will be three trims available - the Toyota GR Supra 3.0L priced at £52,695, GR Supra 3.0L Pro at £54,000 and GR Supra 3.0L A90 Edition for £56,945.

In Europe, the GR Supra will be fitted as standard with lightweight 19-inch forged alloy wheels with alternating black and polished-finish slim spokes.

Supra 3.0L

The entry Supra 3.0L grade includes dual-zone automatic air conditioning, Adaptive Cruise Control with stop and go, smart entry and push-button start, steering wheel with leather trim and auxiliary switches and a digital combimeter in the driver’s instrument display.

LED technology is used for the adaptive headlights, rear lights and daytime running lights, and the mirrors (door mirrors and rear-view mirror) are all auto-dimming. Rain-sensing wipers and a rear-view camera also come as standard.

The sports seats are upholstered in black Alcantara and are power-adjustable (including lumbar support), with integrated heating and memory functions. The infotainment specifications feature a 10-speaker audio system with 8.8-inch display, navigation system with Supra Connect (in applicable markets), Bluetooth and USB port.

Safety features include Supra Safety+ package, which comprises Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Change Departure Alert, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, Rear-end Collision Alert, and intelligent parking sensors with automatic braking. In addition, there is an eCall function that will send an automatic location alert to the emergency services in the event of a serious collision, and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Supra ​3.0L Pro

The Supra 3.0L Pro grade, expected to account for most of the model sales in the UK, builds the specification with black leather upholstery, 12-speaker JBL premium sound system, head-up display, wireless mobile phone charger and storage and lighting packs.

Supra 3.0L A90 Edition

An exclusive GR Supra 3.0L A90 Edition model will be built at launch, with production strictly limited to just 24 examples for UK customers. The A90 Edition will be finished in a new Storm Grey matt paint finish, equipped with matt black alloy wheels and a driver’s cockpit upholstered in red leather. In other aspects, its equipment specification will match the Supra 3.0L Pro model.

The Toyota GR Supra 3.0L A90 Edition will be offered to all UK customers who have placed a pre-sales reservation. The first to convert their reservation into a vehicle order will have the option to specify a Supra A90 Edition as their model choice.
