Toyota GR Supra is the first Toyota model tuned by AC Schnitzer

Toyota GR Supra is the first model which was under AC Schnitzer attention. Apparently a surprise if we think AC Schnitzer is specialized on BMW models, but if we think there are a lot of common parts used by both BMW Z4 M40i and Toyota Supra. The new Toyota Supra was in attention of many tuning specialists until now, but what AC Schnitzer did deserve our attention: the engine of the Supra GR is one from BMW, 3.0 liter turbocharged with 6 cylinders inline and if the factory version delivers 340 PS and 500 Nm of torque the tuned version was improved as much as it offers 400 PS and 100Nm more in terms of torque.
For the extra 60PS offered AC Schnitzer is offering 3 years warranty and even the tuner did not told us other details about the performances we can assure you that the acceleration and the top speed of the Supra GR are much better.
Not only the engine was in attention of the tuner, but also the infotainment system gained improvements. At the exterior a sport rear silencer was installed and the two exhaust pipes can be customized in carbon or in black anodized stainless steel.
The car handling is improved thanks to new RS coil-over suspension, but there might be customers who wants only a more sporty look and a lower set of springs can be installed and then the car will be lower by 15 mm than factory version. Along these the tuner offers a set of 20-inch AC1 Light alloy wheel in BiCollor or Anthracite or AC3 Lightweight Forged Wheels in Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite/Silver.
Between others the exterior body kit includes a front splitter, a carbon “Racing” rear wing which can have a Gurney flap and aluminum mounts. In the cabin we can find many aluminum parts in order to have a sport look.
