2020 Toyota Supra Gets Its First Tuning Job, Well… Sort Of

The all-new Toyota Supra has already been imagined with a wide body kit. This isn’t just a render from a Photoshop hobbyist, but from the tuning minds at Prior Design, which spared no (virtual) expense in modifying the Japanese sports car.

The set of digitized pictures posted by the tuner on social media show an aggressive approach, which we assume will take shape in the near future.

Making sure that it’s noticed regardless of the environment and surrounding vehicles are the new front bumper, vented hood, flared fenders on all four corners, rear wing, large wheels and a lowered ground clearance.

No tuning job would be complete without a power boost. And it’s only a matter of time until we’ll feast our eyes on some more powerful examples roaming the streets. After all, its predecessor had immense tuning potential, and examples boasting in excess of 1,000 horsepower aren’t that uncommon. The thing is, can it spark the interest the Supra Mk4 did?

For now, however, U.S. clients will have to settle for the BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbo-six. It develops 335 hp (340 PS / 250 kW) and 365 lb-ft (495 Nm) of torque and allows the new Supra to sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.1 seconds officially; top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

With an MSRP of $49,990 for the base grade and $4,000 more for the Premium, without the $930 destination and handling charge, the new Supra will go on sale nationwide this summer. Celebrating its introduction will be the Launch Edition, which is based on the Premium, costs at least $55,250 and is limited to 1,500 units.

    Wow, that’s bad. Shame, looks like there’s a pretty sports car somewhere within that overwrought design.

    Tuners should try to get it to look as close to the beautiful FT1 concept as possible.

  • Bash

    Something about this render that kinda sorta almost slightly reminds me a little bit of the Viper!

    • ErnieB

      Please wash your fingers with Clorox… how can you disrespect an amazing looking icon by comparing it to it!! WTF man! Lol

      • Bash

        You are probably right. I shouldn’t compare the magnificent viper to that RC toy Supra. I’m sorry. 😁

  • Eric Yang

    I don’t care if Godzilla redesigned a whole new bodykit for this, it’s still nothing more then a glorify BRZ/FRS/86

    • no25

      LOL not it’s not at all. It’s BMW with a Toyota logo and Supra name, yes. Glorified BRZ/FRS/86? Not even.

      • Eric Yang

        Go look at a BRZ/FRS/86, same body styling, and yes it is also a BMW with a Toyota logo. It’s also coming in a 4 banger version, so yes, glorified BRZ/FRS/86. I don’t like the looks, can’t say much about the BMW motor since I’ve never modded a BMW platform. I’ll have to wait to see if the motor will make me like it a bit, as of now I feel they disgraced the MKIV.

  • SayHi2YourMom4Me

    From what I’ve heard getting that engine to 500hp seems pretty doable in the near future, but tuners can probably push it a little higher eventually. 1000hp might just be a bit of a long shot though. I’m guessing these things will probably be able to go to 60 in the low 3s range and a quarter mile in the 11 second range eventually. Not a supercar killer, but not that bad for the price.

  • Liam Paul

    I don’t understand how the BMW Z4 looks so Good and the Toyota Supra looks like a last minute design rush job.

    • no25

      You think the BMW actually looks good? LOL (and we can all see when you upvote your own comment).

    • guest

      LOL. the Z4 is as sterile as sterile gets.

    • Infinite1

      Because it is a last minute rush job even if it’s kept most of the FT-1’s aesthetics

  • Six_Tymes

    how about NO. that looks stupid. its much too exaggerated

  • MarketAndChurch

    Looks pretty cool, something about it reminds me of a tvr. It might look better with some Corvette styling cues.

  • ErnieB

    Not sure how after market tuners and mod companies are going to dress this one up.. got an ugly one here folks.. cant put lipstick on a pig so they say.

  • Ben

    I like that!

    • Rick Alexander

      I love it! I like that Prior flared the front arches, to tie in with the rear. It also looks much more aggressive, which I like. The turbine styled wheels are perfect! If they price this realistically, I may have to take a closer look at the Supra.

    So much hype for such an underwhelming car…
