Toyota’s racing development arm is not wasting time when it comes to the new Supra

Admit it. You’ve been fantasizing about a tuned Toyota Supra ever since the first batch of official photos hit the internet. How do we know? Erm, we’re kind of guilty of doing the same thing. So lucky for both parties here, Toyota’s TRD division dropped a whole wardrobe of body parts meant to spice up the already-hot design of the 2020 Supra.

2020 Toyota Supra tuning. Is this something I want?

The answer is yes, but on one essential condition. What you want is the tuning treatment offered by the Toyota TRD department and not some shady, basement-designed, ricer work that only ruins what the designers have been aiming to. That’s a no-no. Oh, and underbody neons won’t cut it as well, 2001 was 18 years ago.

With that out of the way, let’s see what TRD has in store for the 2020 Toyota Supra. Right off the bat, you should know that a lot of these parts are made of CFRP (that’s carbon fiber reinforced polymer), a material that’s been made popular by BMW over the past years. Moreover, TRD says this add-on are also functional and actually work to improve the Supra’s dynamic behavior.

What TRD parts can I get for my 2020 Toyota Supra?

TRD offers GR front, rear, and trunk spoilers, side skirts, side door garnishes, and a set of 19-inch forged aluminum wheels.

The front spoiler is 14 mm lower than the standard piece and has fins on both sides, while the rear side spoiler goes to more extreme lengths as it is placed 24 mm lower than the factory one. Then come the side skirts, which also sit closer to the ground (by 4 mm) compared to their original counterparts.

We like the fact that TRD opted for a lip-style rear spoiler instead of a fully-blown wing that would dominate the Supra’s luscious rear end and otherwise ruin the whole game of shapes created by Toyota’s designers in that area.

As for the 19-inch wheels, TRD says they come in two sizes: 19 x 9 inches and 19 x 10 inches, with the latter going to the rear while the former to the front. Also, according to their maker, the wheels add better steering response, extra stability in a straight line, and less noise during hard braking.

Now, as you can figure out, these are just cosmetic and aerodynamics-focused upgrades that won’t touch on deeper stuff like engine performance and chassis. This means your 2020 Supra will continue to push 335 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque from the same, unaltered 3-liter inline-six engine, unless you decide to explore some options that would motivate it towards a higher output.
