Toyota has unveiled a 255 Horse powered four cylinder-ed , new entry level variant of its GR Supra sports car.
Tetsuya Tada, the Supra’s chief engineer said that, “To achieve agile steering and stable cornering, we worked very hard to reduce the new car’s weight, while aiming for a 50/50 weight balance. This presented us with huge challenges, but we did not want to compromise on our targets.” As it is said that the new engine is more compact and 100kg lighter than the 3.0-litre unit, so it can be mounted further towards the middle of the car for 50/50 weight distribution. This, it is claimed, “improves the car’s inertia characteristics and chassis balance for even sharper handling.”
New entry level Supra offers 2.0 litre motor which produces 255 HP and 400 NM of torque with 8 speed ZF automatic gearbox. It can top off 0-100 kph in just 5.2 seconds while emitting 156-172 g/km of CO
