2020 Toyota Supra 0-60 Times – If you can get past the is-not-a-real-Supra controversy, the A90 is a really good car like Senior Editor, Jeff Perez, recently discovered during an initial run. The fifth generation of Toyota’s iconic sports coupe made the headlines even more than usual in recent days after the car and driver posted a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds or three-tenths of a second faster than the official number from the manufacturer.

France’s Motorsport Magazine also had the opportunity to do an acceleration test with the 2020 Toyota GR Supra all the way up to 124 mph (200 KPH). The publication does not reveal any numbers regarding the car’s performance, but the task took approximately 16 seconds to complete, while 0 to 60 mph (96 KPH) sprint time was in the same ballpark as the figures released by Toyota.

The sound you hear as the engine goes through revs at nearly 7,000 rpm should be familiar as it comes from the BMW Turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-Six. In the Supra, it has been called down to 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 365 pound-feet (495 Newton-meters) of torque or 47 HP (35 kW) and 4 lb-ft (5 nm) less than the Z4 Roadster in flag ship M40i specification.

The six-cylinder Supra (reminder, Japan has a four-banger model) is just getting started as Toyota has roped plans for a warmer GRMN variant. In an interview with the Bilgas handle at su’s launch in Madrid, the car’s chief engineer Tetsuya Tada reiterated that the A90 will get the Gazoo racing Masters from the Nürburgring treatment: “Yes, of course we have to make it happen at some point.”

We are now able to quantify our latest positives from our first time behind the wheel of a production 2020 Toyota Supra. We drove one back to our office from Toyota’s Launch event at Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia and have now had the chance to run our full color gamut of performance tests on it.

In short, the fifth-generation Supra is fast-yet faster-than-expected, drawing to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and like through the quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds at 113 mph. Our best runs involved a light climb of brake tightening to get the engine revs off idle and then gently use the gas pedal to avoid excessive wheel spin. The Launch-Control program, which was inconsistent in its commitment, was significantly slower.

These times of acceleration stacked up favorably against some larger, more expensive cannons, almost hanging with a Chevy Corvette or a Porsche Cayman GTS through a quarter mile and slightly out-accelerating BMW m2 competition and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as it is based on the BMW componentry, but the revived Supra follows in the BMW tradition of delivering far better performance than its claimed power, and thus the power-to-weight ratio, would suggest. For example, at 10.1 pounds per horsepower, the Supra out-accelerates the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, which has 120 more horsepower, each of which is only taxed at 8.2 pounds. It’s less a question of whether the Supra 335-HP inline-Six is ​​underestimated, and more about how much. Unfortunately, we have yet to test a BMW Z4 M40i to see how close Supra is to the more powerful, “382-HP” six-cylinder Z4.

Although the horsepower rating is only 15hp, the new Supra is a lot faster than the venerable Mark IV Supra Turbo of the mid-1990s, and – shockingly in today’s world of almost always bigger and heavier – 108 pounds lighter, helped of its trimmer dimensions and lack of rear seat. Our Renaissance red test car weighed 3372 pounds, which is, impressively, a bit lighter than Toyota’s claimed brake weight despite ours being a loaded Premium model, which pushed the as-tested price to $ 56,115.

However, Toyota has not disclosed the coefficient of the drag figure, and we would guess by the way the Supra High-Speed ​​acceleration waxes off that it is not class-leading (all the fake vents probably won’t help, but they would hurt more, if they were real). At 100 mph, the Supra falls behind the Camaro SS 1LE and m2, and at 150 mph, the Supra is subsequently the two of 1.5 and 3.2 seconds, respectively.

Despite wearing the modest size of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tire – it, yes, is stamped with the BMW star (★) designation – the Supra averages a heroic 1.07g on skidpad. It hangs with just about everything not wearing DOT-approved track tires like Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 or Pirelli P Zero Corsas, and slightly better than the current top-dog Cayman GTS and BMW m2. 70 mph braking ability came in at a solidly impressive 148 feet, in line with the front engine competition, though the slightly front-biased Supra (51.5 / 48.5 percent front / rear) can’t hang with the rear biased Porsche Cayman or Boxster.
