Toyota Building Very Limited Run of 35th Anniversary GR Supras

Toyota makes birthday special

  • Marks 35 years since first stand-alone Supra

  • 35 six-cylinder models and 35 fours


Happy birthday to the first Toyota to wear the Supra badge all by itself. The car with the chassis code A70, which is usually known as the 3rd generation Supra. To celebrate 35 years, Toyota is putting on a special edition. It’s the Toyota GR Supra 35th Anniversary Edition and you’ll have to win a lottery to get a chance to buy one.

Toyota will build the cars in both RZ and SZ-R spec. The former is the brand’s name for the 3.0L 382 hp version at home in Japan, while the SZ-R is the 255 hp four-cylinder car. A lesser SZ is also offered there with a 194 hp four, but it won’t get a special edition.

RZ Anniversary edition Supras will come in Matt Storm Gray Metallic paint with a red interior, 19-inch forged wheels, carbon accents in the center console, and a special 35th Anniversary carbon trim piece in the dash. Just 35 of these will be made, from 7,122,727 yen, or around $80,000 Canadian.

The SZ-R 35th Anniversary will also see just 35 cars, but it will be five of each of five different paint colours including white, Prominence Red, Ice Gray, Lightning Yellow, and black. These cars get red leather seats and door trim with Alcantara seat inserts. They get the same 35th badging and carbon trim as well as the 19-inch forged wheels, but will also have a sports brake upgrade and matte black mirrors. SZ-R starts from 5,940,909 yen, or $68,000.

To make buying one fair, Toyota has introduced a lottery. Apply between last Friday and the end of the month, and a total of 70 winners will be picked at random on September 7th. They’ll get an email from Toyota and have a week to start negotiations with their chosen dealer. If they can’t start the deal by then, another name will be picked.
