First 2020 Toyota Supra Rolls Off Production Line, U.S. Deliveries Start This Summer

The first 2020 Toyota GR Supra has rolled off the assembly line in Graz, Austria.

Built by Magna Steyr, the first Supra is a one-off model that features a matte gray exterior with red mirror caps and matte black alloy wheels. The model also has a red interior with carbon fiber trim. Other special touches include an engine cover signed by Toyota President Akio Toyoda and a VIN of 20201 which indicates it’s the first 2020 Supra.

While the car was built earlier this month, it has already been spoken for. As we have previously reported, the car was auctioned off for $2.1 (£1.6 / €1.9) million to benefit the American Heart Association and the Bob Woodruff Foundation which supports veterans and their families.

The company hasn’t announced who won the auction, but they’ll also receive a “VIP race track experience that includes a fully customized professional racing suit, two VIP passes and hot passes to TOYOTA OWNERS 400 – Richmond Raceway and a chance to drive the pace car and do hot laps with Michael Waltrip.”

While Supra production is underway, fans still have a bit of wait before they can get behind the wheel. In the United States, the first 1,500 units will be Launch Editions and they aren’t scheduled to arrive until this summer.

Pricing starts at $49,990 – excluding a $930 delivery, processing and handling fee – and the model is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that produces 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) and 365 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which allows the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in approximately 4.1 seconds. Given enough room, the Supra will eventually hit a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

    Damn this should have been a Celica. The Supra should be taking on the GTR in today’s world.

      But it never did. It competed against the 300ZX back in the day.

      Besides… is a tight rear-wheel drive sports car (even this one that’s lighter yet stiffer than the LFA without using reinforced carbon fiber, has a shorter wheelbase and an even lower center of gravity than the GT86, a 50:50 weight distribution, etc etc etc)…. better for everyday use and a better driver’s car than the heavier “super sports car” that rarely anyone can afford?

      (hence why Toyota jointly developed it with BMW for a bit of time leading the independent development for the rest while even being cheaper than the MKIV was back in the day)

        but its ugly

        • SpongeBob99Swell

          With tight proportions, sleek body, aggressive structures that really suits its character, cohesive flowing yet surprisingly premium touches, that on top of that inspires the FT-1? Ugly? Style is subjective, but I don’t think so.

          It’s still better looking than the MKIV, which looked a little off without the spoiler.

      • Bo Hanan

        You’re wrong. The Supra and the (Skyline) GTR competed until the Nissan (after R34) went upmarket and Toyota didn’t.

        • SpongeBob99Swell

          No. Unlike the R34 which is a high-end ‘super’ sports car, the Supra was a grand tourer back in the day, just was the 300ZX was.

          In fact, the Supra itself was loosely based off the Celica at the start of its life.

          • illogicalPotato

            Sponge is correct; the Supra was always meant to be a grand touring car with it’s long dash to axle. R34 was more of a hyper muscle car.

  • LeStori

    Give it a few years time and it will not only be ugly but really ugly.

    Looks pretty good, except for the red mirror caps.

  • SteersUright

    Why does it ride as high as a crossover? Why’s the front “nose”/overhang so damn large? Why’s the top speed limited to only 155 on a sports car?
    Anyone seen one of these in person? Very curious if it looks less like a shoe and more like a good-looking car?
