The three units of the Toyota Supra GT4 100 Edition are probably spoken for already
Toyota today announced that the cumulative production of the GR Supra GT4 has hit the 100-unit mark.
To celebrate the production of 100 units, Toyota Gazoo Racing launched the limited-edition, commemorative GR Supra GT4 100 Edition, which features an exclusive exterior color, unique front bodywork, and a badge with a serial number. Only three units will be produced.
The “racing-spec” GR Supra GT4 was born out of a desire to give customers wanting to participate in customer motorsports an exciting, efficient and easy way to enjoy racing, as well as to accelerate the making of ever-better cars through the challenge of and feedback from motorsports.
With a cumulative 625 entries in 317 races worldwide as of the end of 2022, it has demonstrated its high potential by recording 79 class victories, 20 overall wins, and 207 podium finishes in GT4 championships in various countries, as well as the Super Taikyu Series in Japan.
Continuing its engagement in motorsports in 2023, 27 units of the GR Supra GT4 are scheduled to compete in various races in Europe, accompanied by 20 units in North America and 12 in Asia, including Japan.
Thanks to the support of customers around the world, the model reached the milestone in approximately three years since its sales launch in March 2020, which started in Europe and expanded to North America in August, then to Japan and other parts of Asia in October that year.
The GR Supra GT4 has been followed by the GR Supra GT4 EVO launched in 2022, allowing the gaining of further knowledge from the front lines of racing, as TGR continues to promote making ever-better motorsports-bred cars.
TGR will heighten its customer motorsports efforts, aiming to bring many smiles and much joy as well as excitement and thrills to its customers through motorsports and sports car manufacturing.
As for the car itself, the three-litre in-line six cylinder engine with single twin-scroll turbocharger has been tuned to kick out 430hp with a 7-speed sports automatic transmission with paddle shift, and the mechanical limited slip differential driving the rear wheels. An Akrapovic exhaust system will also be fitted.
The front splitter and rear wing are made of natural fiber composite, contributing to an overall weight of 1,350kg. Following the specification of the GR Supra road car, the front suspension will be MacPherson strut, and rear suspension will be multilink with KW dampers at the front and rear.
The braking system is enhanced through the use of a dedicated brake calliper for racing, six-piston front and four-piston rear, while running on Pirelli tires.
Safety has also been enhanced through a high-strength roll cage on the lightweight steel body, and an FIA-standard racing seat with six-point harness. The interior will feature a carbon fiber instrumental panel with a display and steering wheel specifically designed for GT4 competition.
