Sure, the latest generation Toyota A90 Supra raised quite a lot of dust over the last few years, even before the car came out. There was a lot of people who were disappointed with the Japanese/German joint venture between Toyota and BMW, but in the end, this produced a rather striking high-performance machine, worthy of its name. Simply put, the A90 Supra is one great car. Even though the drama surrounding it hasn’t subsided that much, the vehicle still comes with a powerful engine, impressive styling, but also, several traits that promise lots of fun & excitement while driving it.
Yes, historically, the Toyota Supra has always been powered by a straight-six engine. And even though some of the early Supra’s were naturally-aspirated, later models of the high-performance coupe were turbocharged. But whether the vehicle was naturally aspirated or came with forced induction didn’t really matter. It simply had to have six-cylinders in a line. And the new Supra continues with the legacy, thanks to a 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-six engine found in the European BMW Z4 M40i. In the A90 Supra, the engine delivers 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, just like the Euro-spec BMW Z4 (even though the Supra comes with 4 lb-ft of torque less). in turn, it promises impressive performance driving dynamics. Sure, we’d all expected more, but this engine is a tuning-happy engine, where performance modifications are done with ease. As a result, we expect at least 500+ horsepower tuned builds to become the norm rather soon, with over 900 horsepower a reachable goal for some tuners.
The Toyota A90 Supra will – just like its predecessors – sends all of its power to the rear wheels. This is done through a standard limited-slip rear differential – the same found in the Z4 M40i. It allows it to lock between 0-100 percent in a blink, thus allowing the new Supra to be a blast to chuck through a corner. Furthermore, Supra comes with two driving modes to play with; Normal and Sport. This is a refreshing decision in a world where every performance machine seemingly comes with about a trillion different drive-mode combinations – most of which we set up once and then forget about it. In addition, as the braking power goes, the new Supra can be tamed down from speed thanks to four-pot Brembos at each corner.
A perfect foundation for an aftermarket build.
