Toyota Supra to get more power with BMW M2’s engine

   Nov 03,2023

Toyota is preparing to unveil an enhanced high-performance version of the GR Supra, possibly dubbed the Supra GRMN. This upcoming model is expected to feature a substantial power boost and a more refined, balanced chassis. Insider information indicates that Toyota is currently conducting tests on a fresh variant of the GR Supra, which includes a fixed rear wing, slightly modified front and rear bumpers, and a lowered ride height.


The upcoming high-performance Supra, rumored to bear the GRMN suffix, might be in for a thrilling power boost by sharing its engine with BMW's M2, M3, and M4 models. This collaboration promises to deliver an exhilarating driving experience, with a potential 0-100kph time that dips below the current model's 4.3-second run. Enthusiasts can anticipate a hotter, more potent Supra, as the automotive world eagerly awaits Toyota's latest masterpiece.

Beneath the hood, the upcoming high-performance Supra is considering a significant upgrade, potentially replacing the BMW Z4-derived 'B58' straight-six engine, which currently generates 340hp and 500Nm of torque, with the tuned 'S58' powerplant from BMW's M division. The 'S58' engine, renowned for its use in the BMW M3 and M4, trades the B58's twin-scroll turbochargers for a pair of single-scroll units and incorporates a modified piston design with a larger bore and shorter stroke, along with reinforced internal components to accommodate the increased power output. As a result, this engine offers versatility with a broad spectrum of performance levels, ranging from 460hp and 550Nm in the new BMW M2 to an impressive 560hp and 550Nm in the limited-production BMW 3.0 CSL.

While specific details are being closely guarded at this early stage, if the new vehicle adopts the S58 engine, it's likely to significantly reduce its 0-100kph time from the current 4.3 seconds. There's also speculation about the potential revival of Toyota's GRMN nameplate, which stands for 'Gazoo Racing, tuned by the Meister of the Nürburgring.' This badge has, thus far, only made its appearance in Europe on a supercharged, high-performance version of the previous-generation Yaris. Meanwhile, the Z4, sharing its underpinnings with the Supra, underwent subtle styling updates earlier this year but saw minimal mechanical alterations.
