TOYOTA GAZOO Racing to commence sales of GR Supra GT4 in March 2020

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing to commence sales of GR Supra GT4 in March 2020 to Europe, and expand sales to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing confirmed today that it will start the sales of GR Supra GT4*1, a race car for customer teams, starting from March 2020 to Europe. The sales area will expand to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October. TOYOTA GAZOO Racing intends to strengthen its focus on customer motorsport*2 in order to enable motorsport-lovers around the world to participate in races.

The GR Supra GT4 is based on the GR Supra―TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's first-ever global model released earlier this year―and is developed and produced by TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH ("TMG").

A three-litre in-line six cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger has been tuned to 320 kW*3 (430 hp) with a 7-speed sports automatic transmission with paddle shift and the mechanical limited slip differential driving the rear wheels. An Akrapovič exhaust system will be fitted and Ravenol will provide first-fill lubricants.

The front splitter and rear wing are made of natural fiber composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350 kg*3. Following the specification of the GR Supra road car, the front suspension will be MacPherson strut, and rear suspension will be multilink with KW dampers at the front and rear.

The braking system is enhanced through the use of a dedicated brake calliper for racing, six-piston front and four-piston rear, while running on Pirelli tires.

Safety will be a priority and the GR Supra GT4 will be installed with a high-strength roll cage on the lightweight steel body, and an FIA-standard racing seat with six-point harness. The interior will feature a carbon fiber instrumental panel with a display and steering wheel specifically designed for GT4 competition.

The contact company for each region of the GT4 vehicle sales and customer support (including sales for spare parts and engineer support) will be the following; TMG for Europe, TRD U.S.A., INC. for North America, and TOYOTA CUSTOMIZING & DEVELOPMENT Co., Ltd. for Japan/Asia. Please contact the listed company for how to apply for purchase. The planned car price is 175,000Ä (excluding tax, custom fee, logistic fee, etc.).

*1 GT4 vehicles are sold to race participants and cannot be driven on public roads.
*2 Private customer teams purchase race cars from manufacturers that are modified versions of production vehicles and enter them into races.
*3 Subject to change depending on the SRO BOP (Balance of Performance).

Yeah, there are tons of people on the supramkv forums with them. I did happen to see a red one like 3 weeks back. But it was night time and I was on the freeway in the fast lane and he was in the slow lane. As soon as I came up on it I noticed the tail lights and was like oh sweet a Supra, but I just happened to be passing a CHP(middle lane) at almost the same time and I was speeding at like 75 so I didn't want to slow down all of the sudden and move over next to the Supra and make it look like I was worried about the cop or anything, so just kept on truckin. I know there's been some at the local car meets in Sac, but I haven't been lately to see one up close. It did look pretty sweet in person, and I haven't really been a fan of its styling up to this point.

I have seen exactly one so far and I've seen it exactly once.

Lady that owns the liquor store up the street bought a white launch edition and had it immediately. In the 4 months or so she has had it, I've seen it one time.

She is usually driving her G-Wagen, so I suspect she owns more than just that store.

Toyota dealers are going to kill the Supra just like Ford did with the Focus RS.

There are already dozens of Supra's across the country for thousands under MSRP.

And I'm assuming if you can drop $50k+ on a vehicle, you can buy a plane ticket to a different dealer, buy the car, and drive it home. Or hell just have it delivered.

Sales numbers in link below. Despite having a 4 months head start, the Z4 is only a head of the Zupra by 656 units.

Even though I'm likely on the low end of income in this forum, I do well for Oklahoma.

There aren't many people that can afford, or justify, a two seater "sporty" car. Especially at $60k+

Damn, 58 pages? Are there actually people interested in this piece of garbage? Why not get a Corvette GS or something that actually performs?

Over 700 new Supra's listed on autotrader. Discounts coming, already see a few with $4k+ off. Expect to see some favorable lease rates if they continue to sit at dealers.

So I like the car but I've been chillin' in SoCal for the last 6 weeks by the beach cities and pch and have yet to see on on the road. You name the exotic daily and even the classic big wing supra yes but new supra no.
