Toyota GR Supra 3000GT concept revealed at SEMA show

November 6, 2019

Toyota has unveiled the GR Supra 3000GT concept at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, showcasing a range of enhancements that are all inspired by the original 3000GT Supra of the 1990s.

The new version was put together by Toyota’s Customisation and Development team (TCD), drawing direct inspiration from the 1994 TRD3000GT Supra wide-body kit. It was originally a project formed to celebrate the Supra’s success in the Japanese Grand Touring Car (JGTC) championship of the time.

Fast forward to today, and another wide-body kit has been developed, only for the all-new GR Supra. You’ll immediately notice the pumped out wheel arches, more aggressive front spoiler and matching side skirts, while the rear end features a chunky diffuser, custom skirting and a huge wing. Special bonnet vents were crafted as a nod to the vents on the original.

It’s not all about cosmetics, though. Underneath, the GR Supra 3000GT concept is suspended by a TEIN Street Advance Z coilover package, lowering the Supra over a set of 19-inch TWS RS317 forged alloy wheels. These are wrapped in Toyo Proxes R888R tyres. Behind the wheels are a set of Brembo GT-S monoblock brakes.

Various upgrades are applied to the interior as well, including FIA-appoved Bride Xero CS racing seats for the front passengers, and there’s a beefy sound system incorporating Pioneer speakers.

Unlike the original 3000GT, it doesn’t look like there are any engine modifications for this new version. The BMW-sourced 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six engine is rated at 250kW and 500Nm. However, there is a HKS custom exhaust system which should not only provide a lusty soundtrack but also some performance gains.

There are no plans for this concept to go into production at this stage, but we’re sure Toyota and its TRD sector will be keen to offer customers some personalisation options in the near future.
