2020 Toyota GR Supra Gets The Power Upgrade It Deserves

Tuning / 24 Comments

That didn’t take long.

The Toyota Supra was famous for being easy to modify, and the brand-new model is no exception. As a result, it hasn't taken long for the Japanese sports car to be given the aftermarket tuning treatment. UK tuning company Litchfield, which is famous for its insanely powerful modified Nissan GT-Rs, has given the 2020 Toyota GR Supra the power and handling upgrade it deserves.

In stock form, the Toyota Supra's BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbo straight-six produces 335 hp and 365 lb-ft, but Litchfield's upgrade increases the output to a respectable 420 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque thanks to an ECU remap and a choice of Milltek or Akrapovic free-flowing exhaust systems. However, it's worth noting that Toyota's power figures are underrated, as Litchfield's stock car was rated at 370 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque when it was hooked up to a dyno.

To increase the car's longevity on the track, Litchfield is also offering an uprated oil cooler, Litchfield Charge Cooler Radiator and a heat-shielded induction package for optimal airflow. A Litchfield strut brace has also been tested to increase the car's rigidity, along with bespoke lowering springs with coilover solutions from KW and Bilstein, and an enhanced caster bush to improve the grip and steering feel.

Complementing the performance and handling upgrades are some carbon fiber exterior enhancements, including front and rear lips, small vent trims, all in carbon fiber. The tuner is also working on additional air ducts for the hood to provide extra cooling for the upgraded engine to breathe easier.

It isn't clear how these upgrades have affected the performance. In stock form, the Toyota Supra will sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. Pricing for Litchfield's 2020 GR Supra upgrade will be announced at a later date, but any work carried out will be warrantied.
