The revived Toyota Supra is one of the most talked-about enthusiast vehicles of the past few years, attracting plenty of attention for its storied name, its BMW-sourced mechanicals, and its interesting styling. No one is arguing about its performance chops, though, as it put up impressive numbers in our testing, including a zero-to-60-mph run of 3.8 seconds and a grip threshold of 1.07g around the skidpad.
The Supra is now finally hitting dealerships, which means that Toyota has finally released the long-anticipated build-your-own tool on its website. We set out creating our ideal version of the new GR Supra, choosing trim levels, colors, and options carefully to maximize the sports car’s value, aesthetics, and equipment.
Model We’d Choose
- Supra Launch Edition ($56,180)
There’s not too much choice involved in configuring a Supra, as there’s only a single powertrain (for now) that consists of a 335-hp turbocharged inline-six and a six-speed automatic transmission. Three trim levels are offered, including 3.0, 3.0 Premium, and a special Launch Edition that includes the first 1500 cars. While the Launch Edition is the most expensive of these, we’re charmed by its red mirror caps and red leather interior, and we figure that it has the potential to make up for its price upcharge when it becomes a collectible further down the road.
Options We’d Pick
We dressed our Supra in white because that’s the official color of the Japanese Grand Prix (yes, we know it’s a German BMW underneath, but it still wears a Toyota badge). The Absolute Zero paint also contrasts nicely with the red mirrors and red interior. Black and red are the only other hues offered on the Launch Edition, while other Supra models offer attractive color options including blue, yellow, and an extra-cost matte grey.
The only option package available is an $1195 Driver Assistance package that includes adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors. We passed, because the Supra is a sports car that prioritizes driver engagement above all else.
Our total cost comes to $56,180, which is just about the largest sum you can pay for a new Supra.
