2021 Toyota Supra pricing and specs: More power, higher price for the GR sports car flagship

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra has seen some changes under the bonnet - and it's not just the new bracing, either.

The 2021 Toyota Supra has been upgraded with more power and a quicker 0-100km/h sprint time as a result.

The updated version sees the GR Supra's 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine bumped from 250kW to a more fitting 285kW (at 5800-6500rpm), which in turn sees the Toyota sports car lop 0.2 seconds from its 0-100 time, now down to 4.1sec. 

The 2021 Toyota GR Supra, then, will be on par with the BMW Z4 M40i model in terms of power output - for those unaware, the Z4 and Supra were codeveloped together. And the retuned engine sees peak power arrive later - the 250kW version had peak power at 5000-6500rpm.

There's no change to the torque output - it stays at 500Nm - but according to Toyota the pulling power is now available across a broader rev range, from 1800-5000rpm (was 1600-4500rpm).

The engine has a lower compression ratio than before (10.2:1), and maintains the same claimed fuel consumption figure of 7.7L/100km. It remains available only with an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive.

Toyota hasn't just fettled the engine as part of this model year 2021 update - the Supra has also seen improvements to its handling characteristics, according to the brand. The company has fitted additional under-bonnet strut braces for improved rigidity, as part of its plan to offer "ever-better cars".

Visually you'll only be able to pick the 2021 Supra if you get up close and take a look at the GTS model's front brake calipers, which are now emblazoned with the Supra logo.

As for the range, the 2021 GR Supra remains available in GT trim at $87,126 (MSRP) and also flagship GTS grade at $97,126 (MSRP). Those prices are up slightly from the previous $84,536 and $94,536 tags, respectively. 

The 3.0-litre turbocharged in-line six-cylinder now produces 285kW. The 3.0-litre turbocharged in-line six-cylinder now produces 285kW.

The GT grade continues with standard gear such as a touchscreen media system with sat nav - but still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto - as well as 10 speakers, dual zone climate control, keyless entry and push-button start, leather sports seats with power adjustment and 18-inch wheels.

Choose the GTS and you get larger 19-inch wheels, sports pedals, a head-up display, and a 12 speaker JBL stereo system. GTS models van also be optioned with the special Nurburg Matte Grey paint ($2500) and Alcantara upholstery ($2500).

Both grades come with a decent swag of safety kit, including auto emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, a reversing camera, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
