As we told you earlier this month, Toyota Motor Philippines is officially introducing the new-generation Supra sports car in July. Well, the launch details have arrived: July 9 at the Manila Polo Club. But that’s not what this piece is for. We also have the price list and the full specifications in advance.
First, the pricing. There will only be one variant available at launch: one powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six gasoline engine rated at 335hp and 500Nm, and paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. But there will be three different prices, based on the exterior color:
- Matte Storm Gray – P5,090,000
- White Metallic – P5,050,000
- Black Metallic – P5,050,000
- Lighting Yellow – P5,050,000
- Silver Metallic – P5,050,000
- Ice Gray Metallic – P5,050,000
- Deep Blue Metallic – P5,050,000
- Prominence Red – P4,990,000
(For photos of these Supra colors, check here.)
According to our source, the Matte Storm Gray is the most expensive paint job because it is very rare. So rare, in fact, that it is limited to 24 units in Japan, and TMP has only managed to secure just one unit. And that sole example is already spoken for as we type this. “I hope they can negotiate for additional Matte Storm Gray units,” our source told us. “That’s also the color I personally want.”
Now, we’ve also managed to get a copy of the spec sheet. Here it is:
So, it looks like TMP peeps merely floated the P5,500,000 estimate figure to gauge public reaction. And now that BMW Philippines has released the Supra’s twin model—the Z4 roadster, of course—the Japanese automaker is very much well-positioned to undercut its more premium German rival.
So…Toyota Supra or BMW Z4?
