Over the course of the last year or so, a lot has been said about the new Toyota A90 Supra. We went from the general hype surrounding its release, all the way to disappointment showcased by some fans, being brought down to Earth from their 1,000+ horsepower and Vin Diesel infused daydreams about the car.
A lot has been said about the new Toyota Supra in the last twelve months. We’ve seen everything from some fans being disappointed, to some actually praising it to previously unforeseen heights. However, the fact remains: the new Toyota Supra is a great car. While it did cause a general stir in the automotive world, the new Supra comes with a powerful engine, impressive styling, but also, several traits that promise lots of fun & excitement while driving it.
Historically, the Toyota Supra has always been powered by a straight-six engine. While some of the early cars were naturally-aspirated, later Supra models were turbocharged. But whether the vehicle was naturally aspirated or came with forced induction didn’t matter. The only thing that mattered was whether or not it had six cylinders in a line.
Under the hood of the new-generation Toyota Supra lies the same 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-six engine found in the European BMW Z4 M40i. The engine delivers 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, just like the Euro-spec BMW Z4 (even though the Supra comes with 4 lb-ft of torque less). in turn, it promises impressive performance driving dynamics. Sure, we’d all expected more, but this engine is a tuning-happy engine, where performance modifications are done with ease. As a result, we expect at least 500+ horsepower tuned builds to become the norm rather soon, with over 900 horsepower a reachable goal for some tuners.
The Toyota A90 Supra will – just like its predecessors – sends all of its power to the rear wheels. This is done through a standard limited-slip rear differential – the same found in the Z4 M40i. It allows it to lock between 0-100 percent in a blink, thus allowing the new Supra to be a blast to chuck through a corner. Furthermore, Supra comes with two driving modes to play with; Normal and Sport. This is a refreshing decision in a world where every performance machine seemingly comes with about a trillion different drive-mode combinations – most of which we set up once and then forget about it. In addition, as the braking power goes, the new Supra can be tamed down from speed thanks to four-pot Brembos at each corner.
For the first Toyota Supra A90 with a set of CCW Wheels, we went with a gorgeous Reinessance Red 2.0 Toyota Supra and given it a set of our unmistakably striking CCW Classic three-piece and CCW C2K monoblock forged wheels. The wheels come in a Matte Black finish and showcase exposed hardware, giving this Japanese machine a daunting look.
