Toyota Supra TRD mods likely for Australia

The Toyota Supra will be the brand's performance hero, with plenty of factory-backed mods set to be available.

The all-new Toyota Supra hasn't even arrived on sale yet, but there's already a market emerging for modifications and additional equipment.

A range of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) parts has been revealed, and it looks likely that - regulations permitting - the bolt-on bits will be offered in Australia when the Supra launches in September this year.

The all-new Supra is already a sight to behold, but the new bolt-on TRD parts include a carbon front spoiler, carbon side skirts, carbon door finishers, carbon rear spats, a carbon rear spoiler and 19-inch forged aluminium wheels (19x9 up front, and 19x10 at the rear).

Toyota Australia product planning manager, Orlando Rodriguez, said the company is looking at all possibilities for its performance hero model, as Australia's rampant car enthusiast culture will demand it.

"That's something we're looking into," said Mr Rodriguez. "We need to look into whether it meets all of the ADR Australian requirements, but yeah, definitely something that could come up in the space - we'll keep you updated on that."

Being a product of a joint-venture between Toyota and BMW - and with powertrains and technology taken from the Bavarian marque's stable rather than familiar Toyota tech - there's a question over how the company will cope with the servicing demands of the high-performance engine.

Toyota Australia director of marketing and sales, Sean Hanley, said the new Supra may not be solely a Toyota product, but that the brand is confident that won't be a barrier to service or repairs if anything goes wrong.

"We have shared information and we will make sure that our technicians are trained appropriately to perform any maintenance that is required for the Supra," said Mr Hanley.

"I can assure you that our customers that buy Supra will be super looked after."
