Track-Bred Powertrain Options
The 2023 Toyota Supra can be equipped with either a turbocharged inline-four or straight-six cylinder engine. The 2.0L four-cylinder variant generates 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, thanks to its twin-scroll single turbo design. Exclusively mated to a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, this engine propels the 2.0L GR Supra from a standstill to 100 km/h in around 5 seconds. Drivers looking for more power can opt for the available 3.0L inline-six cylinder engine that puts out an impressive 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Owners have the choice to pair this larger displacement engine with the same 8-speed automatic mentioned above, or they can row their own gears with the available intelligent 6-speed manual transmission. Regardless of which transmission they choose, the 3.0L GR Supra boasts a 0-100 km/h time of under 4.5 seconds.

Intelligent 6-Speed Manual Transmission (IMT)
Designed specifically for drivers who find satisfaction in rowing their own gears, the Toyota GR Supra’s all-new manual transmission has been engineered to deliver precise gear changes at lightning fast speeds. Specially tuned to handle the power and torque generated by the 3.0L turbocharged straight-six engine, this transmission features a large diameter clutch with a reinforced diaphragm spring.
Near 50:50 Weight Distribution
Toyota’s Gazoo Racing engineers have gone to great lengths to provide enthusiasts with a GR Supra that has a near 50:50 weight distribution. To achieve this, they placed the engine and transmission as low as possible to give the car a low center of gravity. On top of that, they also moved the engine as close to the front axles as possible, ensuring that the vehicle’s center of mass is as close as possible to the center of the car. The result of these engineering decisions is a vehicle that delivers precise steering and impeccable handling, both on the road and on the track.
The 2023 Toyota Supra offers drivers a handful of performance-oriented parts and components that are designed to withstand the grueling demands of track driving. These high-performance features reinforce the Supra’s already impressive drivetrain & suspension components, giving performance-enthusiasts an added layer of confidence knowing that their vehicle is well equipped to handle the added stress of spirited driving. Some of these features include:
- 4-Piston Brembo Brakes
- Reinforced Struts and Bracing*
- Active Rear Sport Differential*
- Adaptive Variable Suspension
- Hairpin+ Function*
