Toyota’s performance division, Gazoo Racing (GR), is certainly busy these days. Seeking to capitalize on the momentum provided by its three models, it is making some changes to both mark key anniversaries as well as improve their performance for the 2024 model year.
The one that sits at the top of this sporty range, the GR Supra, wins a special 45th anniversary edition whose production will be limited in Canada to only 45 copies. It is recognizable by its plasma orange as well as its manually adjustable glossy black rear spoiler. Mechanically, it still uses the original BMW 3.0L turbocharged inline-six with 382 hp, which can only be mated to a (six-speed) manual transmission in its case.
The GR Corolla gets slight modifications to its chassis through the use of new bolts as well as redesigned front air ducts. A new color makes its debut (flame blue) to adorn this sporty all-wheel-drive compact equipped with a 300-hp 1.6L three-cylinder turbo bolted to a six-speed manual transmission.
Finally, the GR 86, this rear-wheel-drive sports car powered by a 2.4 L flat-four (228 hp), commemorates the 40th anniversary of its ancestor, the Corolla AE86, with a Trueno edition of which only 50 copies will be produced. with a manual gearbox. Different dressing, Sachs shock absorbers and Brembo braking system are on the menu of a very entertaining vehicle.
Toyota has not yet revealed the price ranges of these models.
