A few months after the world debut of the A90 Toyota GR Supra at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, the revived sports car has now celebrated its market launch in the United States, marking the first time a new Supra has been sold in the country in 21 years.

For the US, the available trim levels are the 3.0 and 3.0 Premium, as well as an exclusive Launch Edition that is based on the 3.0 Premium. There is no 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine option here, as all versions of the Supra will get a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six. The mill makes 335 hp from 5,000 to 6,500 rpm and 495 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 4,500 rpm, with an eight-speed automatic transmission sending drive to the rear wheels.

Performance-wise, the Supra will take 4.1 seconds to complete the country’s standard zero to 96 km/h (0-60 mph), while the top speed is electronically capped at 249 km/h (155 mph). Toyota claims a combined fuel consumption of 11 km per litre, or 26 miles per gallon, for all three trim levels.

There’s also an active differential that uses an electric motor and multiple clutches to distribute torque between the rear wheels, with stepless variable locking from 0-100%. All cars come as standard with 19-inch forged aluminium wheels and mixed Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres (255/35 front and 275/35 rear).

Other driving-related functions include a Launch Control Function, Normal and Sport modes, as well as Traction Mode. The last item is part of the car’s Vehicle Stability Control and ensures the traction and stability control systems intervene less when activated.

In terms of standard equipment, the base trim level gets LED lighting front and rear, an active exhaust system with stainless steel tips, an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster display, 14-way Alcantara/leather sport bucket seats, dual-zone climate control, carbon-fibre interior trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 6.5-inch infotainment display and 10-speaker audio system.

Moving up to the 3.0 Premium or Launch Edition trims will see the use of leather upholstery only, with a more feature-packed 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit. Supporting features include navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, 12-speaker JBL, a wireless phone charger and a coloured head-up display. This upgraded infotainment package is available as an option for the standard 3.0 variant, albeit without a head-up display.

All cars get 8 airbags, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist and automatic high beam, with the option of a Driver Assist Package that includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and parking sonar.

Pricing for the A90 Supra starts at USD49,990 for the 3.0, while the 3.0 Premium retails at USD53,990. The Launch Edition is the priciest of the bunch at USD55,250, but there will only be 1,500 examples, each uniquely numbered. Customers who want this limited-edition trim level will have three colours to choose from – Absolute Zero White, Nocturnal Black and Renaissance Red 2.0.

These Launch Edition specials will also come with unique touches like high-contrast red side mirror caps and a matte black finish for the alloys. There’s also an individually numbered carbon-fibre badge on the passenger-side dashboard with a graphic of Toyota Motor Corporation president and master driver Akio Toyoda’s signature.

For a wider palette selection, the 3.0 and 3.0 Premium can be had in the aforementioned colours, with the inclusion of Tungsten Silver, Turbulence Grey, Nitro Yellow and Downshift Blue. The 3.0 Premium is the only one that gets Phantom Matte Grey.

In case you’re wondering, the new Supra will be launched in Malaysia as well, with an official announcement being made earlier in February. However, details about the available variants have yet to be revealed, as is the pricing.
