Toyota has put the completing touches to its Targa-topped GRMS Supra, making us wish this wasn’t just an one-off
Just before Xmas, Toyota dropped a little holiday deal with – the final episode in its GR Supra ‘Sport Top’ build. Final time around we saw the one-off task car have its roof hacked off , but in this 3rd instalment, we learn that the eliminated section was unfit to be used for your two-piece removable arrangement the group had planned.
Instead, two new panels had been 3D printed and then tweaked since necessary. To go with the roof, the particular Supra was treated to the exact same A80-inspired body kit as the GR Supra Historical past Edition which Toyota made for the 2019 SEMA display. And yes, that includes adding an enormous rear wing.
Completing the Supra off nicely is really a set of nice and wide HRE tires, plus red mirror caps to look with the two-tone interior. Visually, it is a triumph, making us want it was more than just an one-off.
Targa Supras have been a thing because the A70 generation, and given that the present version is essentially a BMW Z4 in drag, you’d think it’d be technically possible to put something similar to the Sport Top into production. The particular sports car market is tiny within 2021, though, so we’d become surprised if Toyota ever drawn the trigger on something like that will. No harm in keeping your fingertips crossed, of course.
