After a 17-year hiatus, finally the legend Toyota Supra is back again in an all-new fifth generation, and today our colleague Karim Deeb presents a detailed test drive of the 2020 Toyota GR Supra. (GR for Toyota GAZOO Racing).
Before we talk about the star of today’s episode, we would like to remind you that we presented last Wednesday our test drive of the updated 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser Grand Touring, while today we introduce the latest sports car from Toyota.
Karim mentioned at the beginning that the previous generation car equipped with the 2JZ engine was one of the most loved cars by young people. He also reminded us that Toyota had made 4 generations of Supra during the period from 1978 to 2002, in which Toyota decided to discontinue the production of Supra.

And now the sports car is back in a new generation after it was officially revealed in Detroit Auto Show at the beginning of 2019 as a 2020 Model. As you may recall, our team was there and covered the major events of this global motor show last January.
The new sports car was developed in collaboration with the German giant BMW, and it is manufactured in Austria. Toyota participated in developing the chassis and suspension systems of this new car, which is powered by a rear-wheel-drive system.
The new Supra is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbo six engine that produces 335 hp and 500 Nm of torque. The turbocharged I6 is connected to a quick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The 1,520 kg sports car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 seconds and can reach a top speed of 250 km / h.
The price of the new 2020 Toyota GR Supra in the United Arab Emirates starts from $ 62,350, equivalent to $ 233,850, or AED 229,000.
