New 2020 Toyota GR Supra Swings By Chicago Too

If you’re going to visit the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, don’t forget to pay a visit to Toyota’s stand to check out the new generation Supra. One of the most talked about (and anticipated) sports cars of the year, it marks the return of the ‘Supra’ nameplate after nearly two decades.

Beneath those curvy body panels, the Supra hides the same architecture and technology as the BMW Z4, with the two cars sharing the same fire power as well.

In the U.S. of A., the only engine available at launch is the 3.0-liter turbo-six, which pumps out 335 horsepower (340 PS / 250 kW) and 365 pound-feet (494 Nm) of torque. Power is directed to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox only, as there’s no manual option at this time. This configuration allows for a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time of 4.1 seconds.

The all-new Supra starts at just under $49,990 in the 3.0 grade while the 3.0 Premium version costs $4,000 more. Celebrating the introduction of the car Stateside is the Launch Edition, which has an MSRP of $55,250 with production capped at 1,500 units.

Opting for the most basic model still gets you a wide range of standard gear. The 6.5-inch infotainment system, Alcantara seats, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, reversing camera and others are all included. In order to enjoy the navigation and JBL premium sound system, you will have to spend another $2,460.

As for the higher grade Premium, it adds a larger 8.8-inch touchscreen display, wireless charging pad, head-up display, heated leather seats and a few other features.

The Supra Launch Edition, on the other hand, comes in Absolute Zero White, Nocturnal Black or Renaissance Red 2.0 exterior colors, with contrasting accents and special interior trim. All 1,500 cars will get an individually-numbered carbon fiber badge to highlight the limited production run.

    So many questions about the picture of the guy carrying a tire. Did he get a flat? Is he stealing it? Did he blow it out on a hot lap so he’s adding it to the tire wall in the next picture? Are they bragging about tire weight?

    Just a super weird photo to have in your “Look at me!” promo sheet.
