Toyota GR Supra Tuned By Auto Torque, UK
The all new Toyota GR Supra will be a tuners delight around the world.
We are just weeks away from the official arrival of this all new Toyota GR Supra in Malaysia. Meanwhile, many other markets are already seeing sales success with this all new Japanese supercar. We spotted this update from a British tuning house where they have tweaked a couple of new Supra’s. Here below are their personal impressions of the car and their engine tweak.
FromChris Marshall of Autotorque.net:
Since taking delivery of the 2020 Toyota GR Supras at Auto Torque – Performance Tuning we have been busy studying the cars in great detail.
First on the agenda was to test drive themon some twisty country lanes to understand the stock power and handlingcharacteristics.
They are already a very balanced car, with almost perfect 50/50 weight distribution front to rear and very well suited to our UK roads.
Following this, we wanted to measure whatpower they produced on the dyno, so multiple power runs in stock form werecarried out and a GPS timed ‘Draggy’ run to capture performance metrics.
Straight from the dealership the Supraproduces an impressive 361 BHP & 386 FT/LBS of torque! A great starting pointfor the new era of the Supra.
Here’sa selection of photos from the past two days which show what we have been upto.
Now we have the 2020 GR Supra’s back at Torque – Performance Tuning we have given them a thorough inspection and started to make plans for their futures. First on the agenda was to test drive them on some twisty country lanes to get a feel for the stock power and handling characteristics and see where improvements could be achieved. These cars are very well balanced with almost perfect 50/50 weight distribution front to rear.
Development has started already so stay tunedfor updates as they come.
