2022 GR Supra Review
The supra continues a 40-year-old tradition of speed and performance. Plus, the new a91cf edition will be available in 2022. It is limited to 600 units making it the most exclusive mark v supra. Let’s find out what keeps supra raring for more.
The supra lineup includes three core grades 2.0 to 3.0 and 3.0 premium. There is also a new a91cf edition. As the names suggest supra 2.0 has a powerful 2-liter engine and the other two have a powerful 3-liter inline six under the hood. Additionally, 2.0 and 3.0 models are upgradeable with the safety-and-technology package.
The 3.0 premium edition and the a91cf edition are available with an enhanced driver assistance package. This latest generation of gr super continues to be a full throttle race car. It has a front-mounted six engine, which powers the rear wheels.
This design provides exceptional balance and agility. It also features an aluminum fully independent suspension that has an adaptive variable suspension system that adjusts damping force up 100 times per second. Another option to improve handling is the active rear sport differential, which helps get around tight corners.
The real fun is under the hood.
The supra 8-speed transmission is capable of producing blisteringly fast shifts, regardless of the engine choice. It also maintains an ideal balance between power drivability/efficiency whether it’s operated manually or in automatic mode. Supra also features a launch control function and a drive mode select function. This allows you to choose between two driving profiles: normal or sport. Sport mode optimizes everyday driving and throttle suspension. The exhaust note is tuned for track-ready performance.
Toyota’s sports car DNA can be seen from every angle. supra’s innovative and cutting-edge design is an example of this. supra’s double bubble roof is a nod to the Toyota 2000 GT. This enhances aerodynamics by reducing the frontal area and preserving occupant headroom. The front fascia is also inspired by the 4th Generation supra, but it’s more expressive and has six lens led headlights.
A prominent spoiler is integrated into the rear bumper to reduce aerodynamic lift. It also pays homage to the original large rear wings. Supra 2.0 is equipped with standard 18-inch alloy wheels, while Supra 3.0 comes with 19-inch forged alloy wheels. Both cases are wider at the rear and wrapped in super-grippy Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
The core grades are impressive, but the a91cf edition is more powerful. It features a variety of carbon fiber elements. This includes a carbon fiber front splitter with larger Canards and carbon fiber side rockers.
Lower canards do so below because the arrow kit’s aesthetics aren’t just for look. It also helps improve stability and downforce during daily drives or time trials at the local track. Finally, the 19-inch a91cf edition’s exclusive matte black matte wheel sport perfectly matches the vehicle’s matte gray paint scheme.
Super’s cockpit is functional and inviting. The center console has an asymmetrical design that wraps the driver tightly. The low section dash provides the driver with expansive forward vision. A wide range of controls are intuitively located within the reach of the driver. Super’s standard 8.8-inch digital panel ensures both vehicle information and gauges are easily readable.
Supra’s interior features available racing-inspired, 14-way power adjustable seats. They also have memory. Standard adjustable side bolsters/knee cushions can be fitted to this year’s 3.0 models. The bold red leather-trimmed interior and a 91cf edition will increase the excitement.
The leather-trimmed interior is equipped with the most recent tech supra. It features an 8.8-inch touchscreen and can be paired to a 12-speaker JBL stereo system. This multimedia platform supports all the features that you would expect from a premium vehicle, including wireless apple carplay, which connects drivers with apple music, maps, and messages, as well as other apps, from your iPhone.
The Super can be outfitted with qi compatible wireless chargers as well as the Toyota super connect suite, which offers remote vehicle functionality. This suite includes safety services such as emergency roadside assistance.
All models are available with full speed range dynamic radar control blind spot monitor rear traffic alert and parking sensors, with emergency brake function. Supra also comes with a standard set of eight airbags as well as a variety of traction assistance options.
The fifth generation Toyota gr supra was first introduced to the public in 1994. It was greeted with a thunderous reception. This was a legendary return to the scene after more 20 years. With this iconic sports car, Toyota has achieved the purest expressions of performance and technology at an affordable price that makes many exotics look foolish.
You get amazing ownership perks, such as a one-year complimentary membership to the national automobile sport association that includes a high-performance driving experience and discounted admissions to NASA sanctioned events.
This is an exciting new chapter in supra-living up its legacy and high-octane reputation.
