Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has officially launched their new flagship sports car, and it's called the all-new Toyota GR Supra. Also known as the A90 or Mk. V, this model is the fifth generation of the nameplate and is the first-ever to be officially available in the Philippines.
In case you were wondering, the GR in its name stands for Gazoo Racing, Toyota's performance development arm. The new Supra is the first global Toyota Gazoo Racing model, and all units are manufactured at the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria.
Bringing the legendary Supra here is something we have always wanted to do, and we are positive that there are countless Toyota fans out there who share the same enthusiasm. The Supra, above and beyond, embodies Toyota's pledge of making ever-better cars," said TMP First Vice President Cristina Arevalo
