Toyota GR Supra with a 6-speed manual transmission

The news that the Toyota Supra GR will be offered in combination with a 6-speed manual transmission from next year is certainly good news for fans of the three pedals.

The Toyota GR Supra is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 255 hp (188 kW). According to some Japanese media reports, Toyota has decided to offer this model (eight-speed automatic transmission) with a 6-speed manual transmission. Thus, the recently introduced GR 86 will no longer be the only Coupé on offer from the Japanese carmaker, which can be purchased in combination with a manual transmission. This is no surprise, as BMW also offers the same option with the Z4 sDrive 20i model.

The more powerful GR Supra, which is still in the development and testing phase, has already been tested with a manual transmission. It is powered by BMW’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 340 hp (250 kW).

From Toyota comes the news that the Gazoo Racing department is also preparing the most powerful version of the Supra GRMN, which will be powered by an engine from the BMW M3 / M4. It is a TwinPower Turbo inline-6-cylinder engine with 510 hp (375 kW) that allows the car to reach 62 mph in 3.5 seconds.
