Celebrating 35 years since the Supra went standalone.
If there's one thing that the Toyota GR Supra has not been short of since its release, it's a special edition for every occasion. Recently, we've seen the A91-CF Edition which, as the name suggests, adds carbon fiber accents around the car, as well as one called the Jarama Racetrack Edition. This trend of special edition Supras does not appear to be slowing anytime soon, as Toyota in Japan has just released a new model that celebrates 35 years of the Supra being a standalone model (originally, the car was called the Celica Supra). It may not be any more powerful than a regular Supra, but this is the kind of special edition that collectors love.
The name isn't all that imaginative, with the new car called the 35th Anniversary Edition, but what's great about this version is that it is offered in both 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter variants (SZ-R and RZ as they're called in Japan). Both cars get 19-inch forged alloy wheels in matte black and carbon trim accents inside. The base model is finished in one of five colors including Lightning Yellow and gains red brake calipers, matte black wing mirrors, and Alcantara Tasu leather upholstery in Ignition Red. You also get upgraded sports pedals for a sportier look and feel, and 35th Anniversary scripting on the aforementioned carbon accents.
In the more powerful six-cylinder version, you get Matte Storm Gray metallic paint - again with black mirror caps - and extended leather upholstery in red, as well as standard wireless charging. As for pricing, the cheaper of the two starts at ¥6,535,000 (approximately $59,360) while the dearer model will set you back ¥7,835,000 (a little under $71,200 at the time of writing). Only available in Japan in limited quantities of 35 units per model, buyers will not simply be able to walk into a dealer and place an order. Instead, applications for a raffle will be open until the end of the month, with the draw taking place on September 7th. Deliveries are expected sometime in December.
