Limited Edition Toyota GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Shown
1/3 of these limited edition Toyota GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Editions will be right-hand drive.
The Toyota GR Supra is undoubtably one of the most exciting models to be brought in by UMW Toyota. Together with their GR Garages, the company is shifting its direction towards being more fun, sporty and youthful. But what if you wanted a GR Supra that was ultra exclusive? Well, you might be in luck.
Toyota are adding just 90 special Jarama Racetrack Edition GR Supra cars and good news for potential Malaysian fans is that 30 of those units will be bound for the UK. That means some could eventually make their way here (through parallel importers, of course).
So, what’s new with the Toyota GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Edition?
To be fair, it’s mostly aesthetic changes.
- The exterior paint is a unique shade called Horizon Blue
- The 19″ forged alloy wheels are finished in matt black
- red-painted brake callipers
- upholstery in black Alcantara with blue stitching
- carbon fibre dashboard insert with model number and Jarama circuit outline and Toyota GR Supra logo
It’s not much, but that’s enough to set your GR Supra apart from the rest right from the factory.
- power-adjustable seats with memory and integrated heating as standard
- adaptive variable suspension (with Normal and Sport settings)
- active differential
- sports-tuned steering
- Brembo sports brakes with four-pot aluminium front callipers and 348mm ventilated front discs.
- satellite navigation with 3D-mapping, smartphone integration (via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto)
- Supra Connect access to connected services
- 10-speaker audio system
- 8.8-inch TFT touchscreen
- voice recognition
- Supra Safety+ Package

Here’s the press release with more.
Toyota is making an exclusive addition to its GR Supra range with the introduction of the new Jarama Racetrack Edition.
It offers unique styling elements and a high specification, adding to the GR Supra’s fundamental appeal as a sports car in its purest form. Production is limited to just 90 cars for for Europe with 30 available to UK customers – following the precedent set by previous GR Supra special editions.
Taking its name from the famous Spanish circuit where the GR Supra was first driven by the world’s media – to great acclaim – the Jarama Racetrack Edition is powered by the model’s original, 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six unit. Its special Toyota “GR” designation denotes the direct involvement of Toyota Gazoo Racing the car’s development.
It is visually distinguished by a unique Horizon Blue paintwork, contrasting with a matt black finish for the 19-inch forged alloy wheels and visible red-painted brake callipers. In the cabin the car’s special status is signified by a carbon fibre dashboard insert specifying its number in the European production run and featuring an outline map of the Jarama circuit, plus the Toyota GR Supra logo. The interior is upholstered in black Alcantara with blue stitching and the seats are power-adjustable and have a memory setting and integrated heating.
The sports performance and handling are every bit as rewarding as the regular GR Supra, founded on the car’s finely balanced chassis and the ideal “golden ratio” between the wide track and short wheelbase. A low centre of gravity, a lightweight and highly rigid body and aerodynamically efficient styling all add to the car’s agility and stability. These qualities are optimised by performance-enhancing features including adaptive variable suspension (with Normal and Sport settings), active differential, sports-tuned steering and powerful Brembo sports brakes with four-pot aluminium front callipers and 348mm ventilated front discs.
The turbo engine is matched to a rapid-shift eight-speed sports automatic transmission. When using the car’s launch control system, 0-62mph acceleration takes just 4.3 seconds. The driving experience is made all the more engaging by the peak 500Nm of torque being delivered all the way from 1.600 to 4,500rpm.
The equipment specification for the Jarama Racetrack Edition includes satellite navigation with 3D-mapping, smartphone integration (via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Supra Connect access to connected services and a 10-speaker audio system. Multimedia functions are controlled using an 8.8-inch TFT touchscreen, or (for certain functions) voice recognition.
The Supra Safety+ Package provides a comprehensive range of active safety features, including a Pre-Collision System with a pedestrian detection function and the ability to recognise cyclists during daytime driving; Lane Departure Alert with steering assist; Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go function; Adaptive High-beam System; Adaptive Front-light System, which adjust the headlight illumination in line with the car’s steering angle; and Road Sign Assist.
Pricing and ordering information for the new model will be announced later in 2021.
