Despite being only scheduled to go on sale in South Africa during the second quarter of 2019, Toyota SA's new GR Supra is easily the most talked about car right now. You likely to either like it (a little) or loathe it, but make no mistake about, the GR Supra is meant to be a true drivers car. Despite the immense performance potential from the B58-powered GR Supra, there was a key reason TOYOTA opted to limit its output to 250kw. Because, with a track-tuned chassis, a sport suspension, and strong brakes; just the perfect amount of power can elevate a car to greatness. This was Toyota's reasoning with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing-tuned sports coupe, and it shows, because according to the Supra’s chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, he was quoted as saying that the A90 Supra will be able to lap the fabled Nürburgring in "7:40. It will do that easily." Tada says the new Supra is lighter and more rigid than its sister car, the BMW Z4 - despite having a power deficit to the Z4. Comparatively, while the new Z4 is yet to post an official 'Ring time, it is expected to lap the track around 7.55. For reference, the BMW M4 could only manage 7:52 while the Porsche Cayman 981 GT4 could lap in around 7:42, proving that the new Supra is a properly decent sports coupe. #TunedAutomotive #AutoAdvisorZA
