Much has been written about the Toyota Supra over the past few months. More than much in fact. It even made its first in-person appearance in Canada, at the Montreal Auto Show in January. Finally, Toyota Canada has shared what it will cost Canadian consumers to own one.
This much we knew as long as a year ago, because Toyota said so: the new Supra wouldn’t come cheap. We know that to be so, but actually we feel like it could have been worse. The GR version, the first to show at dealerships, will get a starting price of $64,990. The good news is that this version comes fully equipped, which indicates that we’ll get versions later on that are more stripped down and, presumably, less expensive.
The GR name refers to the Toyota Group’s performance division, GAZOO Racing. Fun fact: one of the test drivers for the GR was… the president of the company, Akio Toyoda.
Talk about being hands on!
The GR variant gets a 3.0L inline-6 engine courtesy of the BMW Group, which will deliver 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque to the Supra. This is enough punch to allow for a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of only 4.1 seconds.
Those are promising numbers.
The Supra and its $65,000+ price tag will make their entry at Canadian dealerships starting in summer 2019.
