Toyota Australia has confirmed local specifications and pricing along with the sales process for the 2020 Supra range, the first batch will be sold online starting from $84,990 plus on-roads.
The reborn Supra will be offered in two trim levels - the entry-level GT variant priced at $84,990 plus on-roads and the GTS priced from $94,990 plus on-roads. This means the flagship will easily eclipse the $100K drive-away mark.
The Supra GT gets dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, eight-way electrically adjustable leather-accented sports seats with heating, electrochromatic rear-view mirror, wireless phone charging, LED lights, electric heated and folding mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Standard safety kit includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, auto high-beam, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and a rear-view camera.
The range-topping Supra GTS adds larger 19-inch alloy wheels, upgraded sports brakes, a head-up display and a premium JBL audio system with 12 speakers.
Both variants are powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six-cylinder petrol engine that produces 250kW and 500Nm. An eight-speed automatic transmission and active rear differential send power to the rear wheels.
Toyota claims that with the aid of launch control, the Supra can sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 250km/h.
Buyers will have the choice of seven standard colours - Fuji White, Suzuka Silver, Goodwood Grey, Monza Red, Silverstone Yellow, Le Mans Blue and Bathurst Black.
The GTS can be optioned with Nurburg Matte Grey paint for an additional $2500.
Due to demand and limited volumes, Toyota will sell the Supra via an online portal which the company says will “ensure a fair allocation of vehicles and give customers a unique experience.”
Only 100 examples will be available in the initial allocation, buyers will be able to log on to a dedicated website on 19 June at 12:00 noon AEST, to participate in the first round of vehicle reservations. The process requires a $1000 deposit and will remain open until approximately 100 reservations are confirmed.
The online reservation website will use a randomised balloting process to allocate the first 100 reservations and these lucky few will then go on to complete the full registration process.
Successful customers will receive confirmation of their reservation within 24 hours before receiving a phone call from Toyota's dedicated Supra concierge. At this stage a further $4000 deposit is required to secure the car.
There’s no way around the online ordering system, every order for the new Supra will go through the centralised order process with sales management and deliveries handled by Toyota's dealer network.
Toyota expects only 300 Supras will make it to Australia in the first year of production with deliveries commencing in September 2019.
