Toyota GRMN Supra: Bimmer Brakes & Engine

Rumors Come True: It’s Happening!

Rumors of a high-powered Toyota GR Supra sibling have been swirling for some time, and spy shots of this anticipated vehicle, believed to be known as the GRMN Supra, now show it to own an exceptional visual style that compliments its heightened performance. This marks the nearest thing to a formal acknowledgment of the project we have experienced to date; Toyota has never acknowledged nor made any insinuations of a GRMN Supra and previous conjectures that such an automobile was en route appeared patently absurd.

Rumors have circulated for the past twelve months or so indicating that the GRMN Supra could possibly hold the powertrain of an authentic M vehicle, that is to say the engine from the M4.

Although Toyota hasn’t formally corroborated this motor nor issued any authoritative declarations in light of the prototype represented here, undeniable proof exists that these extravagant speculations were wholly accurate.

Over the years, BMW M has declined from permitting an outside company to appropriate its operational M engines, recognised by an ‘S’ naming prefix. Concerning the M4, this motor is the S58, a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six advanced from the B58 powertrain, which provides oomph for the GR Supra 3.0 currently available.

All that went by the wayside when Range Rover divulged the new Sport SV, sponsored by the S68 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that drives the X6 and M5, among other vehicles. By annulling their implicit motor-sharing order, BMW M seemed to create a gateway for Toyota to fabricate a standout amongst the most stimulative Japanese sports cars of the current era.

Rumors abound, suggesting that this new mill could confer up to 530 horsepower, making it more powerful than the existing M3 and M4. Nevertheless, raw output alone is insufficient to constitute a great sports car.

At the front, the outward appearance remains largely the same, however there is now a burly splitter and side-installed canards present, likely taking their concept from the GT4 Evo Championship machine. At the stern, a permanent (however adjustable) wing greets the eye, but any new side skirting or diffuser accoutrements are not to be observed. These might be integrated in the future, or maybe the current modifications will suffice.

The GRMN Supra is equipped with improved drilled brake discs, with calipers sourced from M automobiles. 19-inch rims up front are present, encompassed in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires of size 265/35. For its rear end it is outfitted with 20-inch wheels with 285/30 rubber. On the other hand, the 3.0 Supra currently is fitted with 18-inch wheels and 255/40 and 275/40 tires.

Undoubtedly, this extraordinary rendition will be much more than just an exterior upgrade and insignia, yet no person can accurately predict when it will be publicly released.
