A90 Toyota GR Supra to be launched in M’sia this year

Good news! UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has officially revealed that the new A90 Toyota GR Supra will be making its way to Malaysia this year, so for those who have been waiting for the reborn sports car, get those cheque books ready.

For now, there’s no word on official pricing or the variants that we will be getting here. Two engine choices are available for the Supra, starting with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 197 PS from 4,500 to 6,000 rpm and 320 Nm of torque from 1,450 to 4,200 rpm.

The same engine is also available in a higher state of tune, producing 258 PS from 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 400 Nm from 1,550 to 4,400 rpm. No surprise that the more powerful four-pot completes the zero to 100 km/h sprint quicker at 5.2 seconds compared to the less powerful unit’s 6.5 seconds.

The second engine option is a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six that offers 340 PS from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm and 500 Nm from 1,600 to 4,500 rpm. It is the quickest of the lot, taking just 4.3 seconds to complete the century sprint. All engines are mated to a standard eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, with drive going to the rear wheels as it should.

As mentioned earlier, UMWT has yet to tell us what variants will be destined for our shores, or how much they might cost. Nonetheless, it’s an exciting time for fans of the JDM legend. Three words: Supra is back!
