The Japanese automaker will unleash a special extra-high-performance model to cap the range. The Toyota Supra GRMN will deliver a whopping 500-plus horsepower, courtesy of the twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine that will power the next BMW M3 and M4.
At the moment, the current Toyota Supra uses a BMW-sourced 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine, internally known as the “B58”. It’s a brilliant engine and one of the very best parts of the new Supra. However, it seems as if Toyota might be sourcing a different BMW engine for a more powerful, track-focused version of the Supra.
The last part of the rumor suggests a price for the Supra GRMN, and if you’ve already been gobsmacked by what we’ve reported thus far, you might want to take a seat. A figure of 12 million yen is casually dropped, which currently translates to around $112,000 in U.S. currency. We must stress that the report merely offers this as a suggestion, but it’s a wild suggestion amid a story of wild claims.
Best Car Web’s report also puts a 2025 expiration date on the current Toyota GR Supra, with no replacement in the works, which, as much as we hate to say it, sounds quite plausible in spite of the outlet’s other, harder-to-fathom claims. Today’s highly regulated, emissions-obsessed automotive environment and its affects on pricing and powertrains make building sports cars a risky bet.
