    GR Supra a sports car in its purest form, with a classic front engine/rear-wheel drive combination


    Straight-six turbocharged 3.0-litre engine produces 340 DIN hp and 500 Nm torque, enabling 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds


    Performance-focused chassis with “golden ratio” track and wheelbase proportions for optimum handling agility and control


    New version on sale in selected European markets from March 2021




Toyota is making an exclusive addition to its GR Supra range with the introduction of the new Jarama Racetrack Edition.




It offers unique styling elements and a high specification, adding to the GR Supra’s fundamental appeal as a sports car in its purest form. Production is limited to just 90 cars for European customers – following the precedent set by previous GR Supra special editions and referencing the coupe’s A90 codename.



The new model goes on sale in Europe from March 2021, with specific launch dates varying according to individual national markets.



Taking its name from the famous Spanish circuit where the GR Supra was first driven by the world’s media – to great acclaim – the Jarama Racetrack Edition is powered by the coupe’s original, 340 DIN hp 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six unit. Its special Toyota “GR” designation denotes the direct involvement of Toyota Gazoo Racing the car’s development.



It is visually distinguished by its unique Horizon Blue paintwork, contrasting with a matt black finish for its 19-inch forged alloy wheels and visible red-painted brake callipers. In the cabin the car’s special status is signified by a carbon fibre dashboard insert specifying its number in the production run and featuring an outline map of the Jarama circuit, plus the Toyota GR Supra logo.



The interior is upholstered in black Alcantara with blue stitching and the seats are power-adjustable and have a memory setting and integrated heating.



The sports performance and handling are every bit as rewarding as the regular GR Supra, founded on the car’s finely balanced chassis and the ideal “golden ratio” between the wide track and short wheelbase. A low centre of gravity, a lightweight and highly rigid body and aerodynamically efficient styling all add to the car’s agility and stability.



These qualities are optimised by performance-enhancing features including adaptive variable suspension (with NORMAL and SPORT settings), active differential, sports-tuned steering and powerful Brembo sports brakes with four-pot aluminium front callipers and 348 mm vented front discs.



The turbo engine is matched to a rapid-shift eight-speed sports automatic transmission. When using the car’s launch control system, 0-100 km/h acceleration takes just 4.3 seconds. The driving experience is made all the more engaging by the peak 500 Nm of torque being delivered all the way from 1.600 to 4,500 rpm.



The equipment specification for the Jarama Racetrack Edition includes satellite navigation with 3D-mapping, smartphone integration (via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Supra Connect access to connected services and a 10-speaker audio system. Multimedia functions are controlled using an 8.8-inch TFT touchscreen, or (for certain functions) voice recognition.



The Supra Safety + Package provides a comprehensive range of active safety features, including a Pre-Collision System with a pedestrian detection function and the ability to recognise cyclists during daytime driving; Lane Departure Alert with steering assist; Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go function; Adaptive High-beam System; Adaptive Front-light System, which adjust the headlight illumination in line with the car’s steering angle; and Road Sign Assist.
