Toyota has shifted its focus from the street-legal six-cylinder Supra, which recently received a long-overdue manual transmission, to the Supra GT. The GT4, which made its debut three years ago, has been upgraded mechanically in a wide variety of ways and is now ready for competition. Since its debut in 2020, more than 50 GT4s have raced in over 11 national and international championships. As of August, the racecar had won more than 50 times in total.
Engineers at Toyota Gazoo Racing have made adjustments to the car’s braking and handling based on feedback from drivers. The 3.0L engine is more powerful, has a flatter torque curve, and runs cooler. The brakes and ABS on the Supra GT4 Evo have been updated, and newer KW dampers have been installed. Moreover, the 2023 racing car has a new anti-roll bar installed to prevent rollovers at high speeds.
2023 Toyota GR Supra GT4 Evo
This year’s first IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge event, the 24 Hours of Daytona, will be our first look at the Supra GT4 Evo in action. Toyota Gazoo Racing, meantime, is opening its order books today at a price of €186,000 (without including taxes, customs, or shipping costs). To meet the Evo specification, existing owners can just purchase the necessary improvements instead of purchasing a whole new vehicle.
A rearview camera and water filtration system are just two of the many potential extras. A tyre pressure monitoring system and suspension travel sensors are also available as options for the Supra GT4 Evo, although they come at an additional expense. In addition to all of the other extras, you can also have an endurance package that has been homologated.
Regarding the street car, we are still holding out hope that the Supra GRMN will be released. The last time we checked, Toyota was only offering the powerful BMW S58 engine (more than 500 hp) with an automatic transmission.
