SPIED: A90 Toyota GR Supra spotted in Shah Alam!

SPIED: A90 Toyota GR Supra spotted in Shah Alam!

Remember when UMW Toyota said it will launch the new A90 GR Supra in September this year? Well, it looks like things are right on track, because reader Mior Mohd Amin has just spotted a unit on a flatbed truck in Shah Alam, finished in the hero colour Renaissance Red 2.0.

It’s unclear which variant this is, but it’s worth noting that the Supra is available with two engines, starting with the base 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 197 PS and 320 Nm of torque, as well as a more potent tune of 258 PS and 400 Nm. The 0-100 km/h sprint time is done in 6.5 seconds and 5.2 seconds respectively.

However, the one we will most likely be getting is the 3.0 litre turbocharged inline-six, offering 340 PS and 500 Nm of torque. Here, the Supra does the century sprint in 4.3 seconds. All engines are mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission as standard, with drive sent to the rear wheels.

For now, there is no indicative pricing for the Supra, but a vague benchmark is provided by the Supra’s close cousin, the G29 BMW Z4, which retails for RM480k in sDrive30i form. In Indonesia, the 3.0L Supra is priced close to RM600k.

The Supra’s arrival will also see the introduction of GR Garage, which will sell all GR-branded performance cars. These outlets will be located within an existing dealership, where they will have a dedicated corner that’s furnished with GR branding.

According to a source from UMW Toyota, there will be a total of six GR Garages across the country, although no specific locations have been mentioned. Besides the Klang Valley, the GR Garage will also be present in the northern and southern regions. Who’s ready for the Supra?!

            “Inside, the Supra borrows much of its switchgear (along with its door mirrors and door handles) from BMW – owners of the F30 3 Series will find plenty familiar here, down to the stubby electronic gearlever. The iDrive system, complete with its tiled interface, has also been lifted straight from Munich… again, similar to what you’ll find on a BMW.”

You’re not so smart are you?
            And to take other people’s identity just to push that agenda, you’re either desperately running out of excuses to give, or your motives are highly suspect. Or maybe I give you too much credit, and you’re just a low IQ imbecile having caught stealing people’s identity.

      • First of all, you guys need to learn the difference between copying & rebadging/sharing components.

        Toyota made a deal with BMW to use not only the engine & platform of the Z4 but various trim pieces and also the idrive system. With BMW’s approval, it isn’t called copying, especially when it benefits both companies.

        “Copying” is for example when proton decided to blatantly copy paste alfa romeo’s front grill on their old perdana V6.

        Secondly, Toyota’s argument is that if they had developed a fully bespoke car it wouldn’t be as affordable as it is now.
        Whether or not you think that is a believable excuse is up to you to decide.

        In my opinion, im fine with the platform being the same. Bmw knows how to make a good chassis. But they should’ve and could’ve made a successor to the 2jz but they did not, a missed opportunity.

          Hang on, you said Proton copied that grille from AF but even AF themselves didn’t use that grille in some generations of their cars! Look, there is no patenting of designs. There is no issues of automakers lifting design elements from each other like KIA Forte mimicing Lancer ‘shark’, or Hyundai cars looking like Audi copies. Are you going to fault them too? If you say there is nothing wrong with Toyota, then your accusation of Proton is just as flimsy.
