2025 Toyota Supra GRMN Spied Low-Riding

Bigger Brakes but Aero Package Not Hidden

Recently, 25 extra spy photographs have been provided to the start of the album just underneath. These exclusive images give us a peak into what could be the upcoming model before it’s official reveal.

At long last, the Toyota Supra has been caught on camera in its more powerful GRMN guise. The “Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nürburgring” version was spotted at the Green Hell, its home turf, with only a minimal amount of camouflage. Despite the attempt to conceal the vehicle, the large wing is still visible, and it looks to be based on the rear aero piece found on the 45th Anniversary Edition.

At the front, those adorning ducks on the outer ends of the bumper are notably conspicuous, and so is the spoiler’s edge. When viewing from the side, this prototype gives quite the spectacle as it glides effortlessly to the ground thanks to the strong suspension system. The Supra GRMN showcases modern, perhaps lightweight wheels with more robust brakes displaying a red colouring to the calipers. We would estimate that this most certainly won’t be the way the theatrical edition will appear in view as Toyota is probable to do amendments to the bumpers too.

It is anticipated that the most significant alteration will be made to its mechanicals, where it could, at last, acquire an engine from BMW’s M Series. Supra models regularly have either the B48 2.0-liter or B58 3.0-liter engines from BMW’s performance line. Perhaps the German creators will lend Toyota the S58, which currently sustains the M2, M3, and M4 models in addition to the X3 M and X4 M as well as the Alpina B3.

Today’s six-cylinder Supra holds up to 382 horsepower, but the BMW M motor is capable of even substantially more. The M4 base model gives you 473 hp, increased by the M4 Competition at Tour de Force of 503. Then comes along the M4 CSL with its 543 power rating to correspond with the M3 CS and the M4 CS debuting next season. In the special 3.0 CSL with only fifty units fashioned, the engineers managed to squeeze out an additional ten horses, increasing the total to an astonishing 553 hp.

It is uncertain exactly how much power BMW are set to grant Toyota with the Supra GRMN. We’d place a bet that it will be in the region of 500 horsepower, yet remaining below the capacity of the M4 CS. Assuming the model surpasses the figure of 473 hp of the ordinary M4, don’t expect to find a clutch if you examine the M4 Competition or M4 CSL as those are only attainable with an automatic transmission. The 3.0 CSL special edition was stooped with a six-speed manual gearbox, however, this prompted BMW to impose a restriction on torque to 404 lb-ft (550 Nm) instead of offering the S58 its full potential capability of 479 lb-ft (650 Nm).

It wouldn’t be stunning if this potentially turned out to be the last hurrah for the Supra, given that whispers from BMW insiders declare that the mechanically analogous Z4 shall terminate production at Magna Steyr’s factory in Graz, Austria as of 2026, with no replacement forthcoming. Just before it fades away, the M40i variant of the Bavarian roadster is likely to bring together the inline-six motor with a manual transmission for a 3-clutch affair that echoes the six-speed, six-cylinder Supra. Interestingly, that seems like it could culminate in a so-called limited-run special edition that ignites comparison with the Yaris GRMN released during the start of 2022. Former-generation hot hatches were also manufactured in minuscule numbers.
