Previewed in March this year, the A90 Toyota GR Supra has been officially launched in Thailand. The fifth-generation sports car is available there in the highest RZ spec, with an introductory price of 4.999 million baht (RM690,773). Toyota is including the GR Service Package with free service for three years or 60,000 km.
The CBU import from Austria – the Supra rolls off Magna Steyr’s Graz plant alongside its G29 BMW Z4 platform sister – was launched in Malaysia in September, in the same high spec for RM568,000 on-the-road without insurance.
Like us, Thailand gets the Supra with the most powerful engine available, which is a 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six with 340 PS and 500 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 4,500 rpm.
The BMW B58B30 engine, as used in the Z4 M40i, is mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, channeling drive to the rear axle. The A90 does 0-100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds and top speed is capped at 250 km/h.
The Thai RZ’s kit list isn’t fully confirmed yet, but it should be similar to what UMW Toyota Motor is offering here. We get 19-inch wheels (with 255/35 front and 275/35 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres), eight-way powered seats with driver’s side memory, leather dual-zone climate control, Toyota Supra Connect infotainment (8.8-inch touchscreen, iDrive controller, 12-speaker JBL sound system) and a head-up display.
Safety kit includes seven airbags and a driver assist pack that has Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive High Beam System, Rear-end Collision Warning, Speed Limit Info, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
