European 2020 Toyota Supra Arrives, Production Capped At 900 For First Year

Alongside announcing the U.S.-spec 2020 Toyota Supra at the Detroit Auto Show 2019, the automaker has dropped images and details of the European model. Curiously, Toyota will build and deliver just 900 new Supra models for the European market during the first year of the car’s launch. A special-edition model dubbed the Supra A90 Edition will also be sold, limited to just 90 examples across the continent.

Like the Supra bound for the U.S., European models are offered exclusively with a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine delivering 335 hp and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. This engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and drivers will have the option of Normal or Sport driving modes to suit their tastes.

The Sport mode adjusts the engine sound and response, shift pattern, damping, steering, and active differential. There’s also a special Track setting for the Vehicle Stability Control system that reduces the level of intervention when the sports car is being driven at its limits. The new Supra also includes a Launch Control function which helps the vehicle sprint to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds.

There’s a Supra for every scenario.

As mentioned, production will be capped in Europe at 900 examples during the first year. Those lucky 900 owners “will be given access to an exclusive experience programme and money-can’t-buy rewards in the lead-up to the delivery of their car,” Toyota says.

All versions of the 2020 Toyota GR Supra sold across Europe will come with an active differential as standard. This differential operates both when accelerating and decelerating and can adjust from zero to full, 100 per cent locked virtually instantly. An ECU dedicated to the differential continuously monitors steering wheel, throttle and brake pedal operation, engine speed, and yaw rate to ensure the differential works perfectly.

There are two Supra grades offered in Europe: Active and Premium. The entry-level Toyota GR Supra Active includes the aforementioned differential, Adaptive Variable Suspension, and 19-inch forged alloy wheels with a high-performance brake package. Additionally, the Active model includes dual-zone automatic air conditioning, Adaptive Cruise Control, smart entry and push-button start as well as LED headlights, rear lights, and daytime running lights. There’s also auto-dimming mirrors.

Inside, the Supra Active features a 10-speaker audio system and an 8.8-inch infotainment display with Bluetooth and a USB port.

As for the Supra Premium, it includes the same features as the Active but adds black leather, a 12-speaker audio system from JBL, heads-up display, and a wireless phone charger.

Toyota will announce European pricing shortly.

    I highly doubt those front parking sensors will work effectively when the license plate holder is so close to them

      Oh yeah, Toyota certainly forgot to think about that little detail 😀

        Tell that to the millions who had to take their cars back in order to have their airbags replaced. Or the accelerator pedal for that matter. They were much bigger details but they managed to screw them up.
