Sales Rollout For Toyota GR Supra GT4 Confirmed

European sales from March 2020

Toyota Gazoo Racing will start European sales of their GR Supra GT4, from March 2020.

The sales area will expand to North America in August, and to Japan/Asia in October.

The GR Supra GT4 is based on the new GR Supra, Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first-ever global model released earlier this year – and is developed and produced by TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH in Cologne.

A three-litre in-line six-cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbo has been tuned to 320kW(430hp) 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 fibre composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350kg.

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 with dedicated brake callipers for racing, six-piston front and four-piston rear while running on Pirelli tires.

The GR Supra GT4 will be fitted with a high-strength roll cage on the lightweight steel body, and an FIA-standard racing seat with a six-point harness.

The interior will feature a carbon fibre 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. (“TRD USA”) for North America, and TOYOTA CUSTOMIZING & DEVELOPMENT Co., Ltd. (“TCD”) for Japan/Asia.

The planned car price is 175,000€(excluding tax, customs fee, logistic fee, etc.)
