The Toyota Supra will arrive in Australia wearing a sub-$100k price tag, with the Japanese company today launching its sales website for local customers.
The rear-drive Supra - designed and engineered alongside the BMW Z4 - will start in an entry-level GT trim level, which is priced from $93,730 drive-away. That money will buy you keyless entry, carbon-look trim elements, a powered and heated driver's seat and paddle-shifters that control the automatic gearbox.
You can then step up to the GTS trim level, which ups the price to $104,379, and adds a head-up display, 19-inch alloys that hide red callipers and better sports brakes, and leather or Alcantara seats. For reference, the BMW Z4 M40i starts at $124,900, plus on-road costs.
Whichever trim you choose, your engine remains the same; a potent turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder unit which unlocks 250kW and 500Nm. That power is fed to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and will push the Supra to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds, before rocketing on to a top speed of 250km/h.
Standard safety also includes Toyota's Pre-Collision Safety system (AEB), adaptive cruise control and speed-limit monitoring. In terms of colours, you can choose Monza Red, Le Mans Blue, Silverstone Yellow, Fuji White, Bathurst Black, Suzuka Silver, Goodwood Grey or a limited-run Nurburg Matt Grey.
The Supra will arrive in September, and Toyota has today opened the pre-order books for the first 100 vehicles. Toyota says this is simply the first window for purchase, with more to come as the launch date approaches. The site links customers with a local concierge who will manage the booking process, while Toyota dealers will eventually deliver the vehicles.
