GLORY HUNTER

The Toyota Supra continues to dominate auto news headlines, with Toyota's in-house tuning division - TRD - releasing a 'Performance Line' of parts for the GR Supra. While TRD say these parts are purely "concept" at present, expect them to make it to market very soon. The line of parts are purely focused on the exterior of the A90, and while they upgrade the aesthetics of the sports coupe, they are entirely functional, improving the aerodynamics which will no doubt take the Supra's handling to another level. The parts, made of lightweight carbon-fibre, include a more defined front spoiler with canards, side skirts, a door garnish, a more pronounced rear diffuser and a larger boot spoiler. To compliment its racier exterior, TRD also fitted a set of lightweight, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped shod in Michelin performance rubber. There have been no updates to the powertrain, meaning this TRD-fettled GR Supra still packs 250kw and 500nm from its 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six.

Expect Toyota SA to launch the GR Supra locally just before the middle of 2019, with pricing set to be announced closer to that time. #StayTuned #TunedAutomotive #AutoAdvisorZA
