A Swiss tuner turned the Toyota GR Supra into a 454-hp weapon

So I've actually triple-checked and dÄHLer Competition Line is indeed Swiss. The company is based in Belp in the canton of Bern, in the German speaking part of Switzerland. Who would have thought that the Swiss, of all people, would look at the Supra and think "that needs more power." Well, they did. And this is the result, a 454-hp GR Supra.

The Supra GR was introduced about a year ago and it was received with mixed reviews. Some people called it a rebadged BMW Z4, which it kinda is, and other believe it is a bit underpowered. The lovely people at dÄHLer (not a typo, this is how they spell their own name) probably agreed and decided to set about working on the 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six engine.

The standard Supra GR makes 335 hp and 369 lb-ft and customers can choose between two different power upgrades. With the Stage 1, the dÄHLer Supra makes 402 hp and 450 lb-ft whereas with Stage 2, the car puts out 454 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque and the speed limiter is removed.

As you'd expect, they haven't gone OTT with the exterior. In fact, at first glance, this looks like any other Supra and I think that's a good thing. Whatever else you may say about the looks, I personally don't mind the Supra at all, it is a relatively understated car and there's no point giving it wings and rocket launchers unless you've got the right amount of power to go with it.

Apart from the black paint, which looks cool, the dÄHLer Supra features a new stainless steel exhaust system, new 20-inch ultra light forged wheels on Michelin tyres and that's about it.

This dÄHLer Supra is a work in progress because these two versions are already available for purchase, but the company is already planning a more powerful version with a new Competition Clubsport coilover kit and a DDC Plug and Play kit among other things. No pricing details are available at the moment, but the company is taking orders so I guess the price is upon application.

    • Up until recently it seemed that Toyota placed all of their performance car efforts on Lexus. I remember when they redesigned the Supra in the early 90’s. That car was a game changer and then it just disappeared. Toyota cars fell off my radar...
