2023 Toyota GR Supra Lands In Malaysia With A Manual Option
See how the 2023 Toyota GR Supra is now better than before
UMW Toyota Motor and GAZOO Racing (GR) Malaysia recently launched five new GR models to the local market. At an event themed ‘Awaken the Beasts’, the models included the 2023 Toyota GR Supra which, for the first time in Malaysia, is now offered with the option of a 6-speed manual transmission.
The Beast Improves
When Toyota first released the GR Supra back in 2020, the car was plagued by lukewarm reception due to a number of factors. The car was built in partnership with BMW and featured a BMW based engine. Now after undergoing several improvements, the new Surpra is much more well accepted.
Power In Check
Kitted with a new 6-speed manual transmission, the Toyota GR Supra was built to match the unique characteristics of the BMW turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six engine which produces 388PS of power and 500Nm of torque . This insane power is sent to the rear wheels for added thrill and of course, drifts.
Watch It Run
The new Toyota GR Supra can accelerate to 100 km/h from standstill in just 4.4 seconds, on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. That is wicked fast and having test driven the car on track and launching it, we can confidently say, this car is truly a beast.
Feral Proportions, Beastly Stance
Part of the appeal of the 2023 Supra is its perfect 50:50 weight distribution. It also features 19-inch forged alloy rims with 255/35 tyres in front and 275/35 tyres in the rear. This, along with its wide overall stance and flares around the tyres adds a muscular stance to the car’s image.
Inside, the interior of the 2023 Toyota GR Supra is equipped with an extensive list of standard features including leather upholstery, a head up display, sport bucket seats, rev-matching (for the manual variant only) as well as a crisp and clear,12-speaker JBL audio system.
More Colour Options
The Toyota GR Supra is available in eight striking colours, which are Prominence Red, Lighting Yellow, White Metallic, Black Metallic, Dawn Blue Metallic, Volcanic Ash Grey Metallic, Matte Avalanche White Metallic, and Matte Storm Grey Metallic. The model is now open for sale for RM649,070 for the manual option. Visit the Official Toyota Website to book a test drive and experience the new GR Supra yourself.
