The Toyota GR Supra has come beneath some criticism for its lack of efficiency in comparison with rivals within the phase. On condition that it makes use of a three.Zero-liter, 6-cylinder from the BMW Z4, might we see a Supra with a BMW M3 engine sooner or later?
Properly, BMW M boss Markus Flasch actually thinks so. He mentioned that an M3-engined Toyota Supra is feasible, however unlikely. There was no request from Toyota on this regard both.
The engine in query is the newly developed S58 unit that’s good for over 500 hp. Will probably be supplied on the subsequent technology M3 and M4 Coupe. Experiences recommend that the long run M2 might additionally use the identical engine. Nevertheless, if this engine ever makes it into the Supra, it might be the primary time an M engine is bought as a buyer unit for the reason that McLaren F1’s V12.
Presently, the GR Supra is obtainable with a three.Zero-liter, turbocharged 6-cylinder engine that produces 335 hp and 365 lb-ft. Nevertheless, dyno assessments have revealed that the engine truly places out 339 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque on the wheels.
Talking of engine swaps, Daigo Saito has already swapped out the BMW engine for a good-old 2JZ motor in his Supra drift automobile and so has HKS.
