Toyota has chosen not to accompany the long-awaited manual version of its Supra with a price increase. The two-seater coupe, relaunched in 2019 under this generation, receives it for the first time, to the delight of fans of the more immersive genre.
Thus, in exchange for $68,640, you can get your hands on a copy equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. This can only be bolted to the BMW-sourced 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder producing 382 hp. The price of the 3L livery thus increases by just $820 for 2023. A less expensive 2L (255 hp) four-cylinder turbo version remains present, subtracting $11,470 from the bill. However, it can only be supported by the eight-speed automatic transmission.
This choice to offer the manual in the iconic sports car developed in conjunction with BMW undeniably goes against the grain of an industry that increasingly values the automation of the act of driving. All this is accompanied by adjustments made to the braking system, steering and damping of the sports car for this new model year.
