If there is one thing that nearly all driving enthusiasts will tell you, it is that driving a vehicle with a manual transmission is more fun and engaging. In a move that is sure to please those enthusiasts, Toyota has announced that the 2023 GR Supra is available with a manual transmission.
This addition will give the GR Supra hands-on thrills. The 6-speed manual is available on the Supra 3.0 and 3.0 Premium.
When the GR Supra made its comeback in 2019, Mike Trip, vice president of Toyota Vehicle Marketing and Communications, said that fans “regularly asked if there would be a manual version. We immediately took that feedback to heart and started developing it, and we’re happy that we can now bring customers the perfect complement for Supra’s high-torque, high output engine with a six-speed manual.”
In addition to the new manual option, the 2023 Toyota GR Supra adds new exterior color options and special edition models. The limited A91-MT Edition will be available only for the 2023 model year and will be limited to 500 units. It features exclusive hazelnut-colored leather-trimmed seats, a 12-speaker JBL® sound system, a shift knob with the GR logo, and red exterior badges. Buyers can choose between Burnout and CU Later Gray.
