Members of the AC Schnitzer team are petrol heads through and through and are doubly pleased about the cooperation between BMW and Toyota: on the one hand they feel that the new Toyota GR Supra is simply a great sports car, on the other hand the BMW technology built into the vehicle enables them to integrate their core competence into a Toyota model for the first time. And they are doing this with immediate effect with the AC Schnitzer range for the Toyota GR Supra.
In developing the range, they have naturally remained absolutely true to their principles: “Beyond the standard” means that all AC Schnitzer products are tailor-made, race-tested, at the same time absolutely suitable for everyday use and of high quality.
For the Toyota GR Supra with 3.0l engine, for example, AC Schnitzer developed a performance upgrade that raises the standard output from 340 HP to 400 HP. The maximum torque increases by 100 Nm from 500 Nm to a sporty 600 Nm. As is usual with AC Schnitzer, each performance upgrade comes with subassembly warranty up to 36 months. This means that the customer is on the safe side “in the worst case”.
The sound and appearance of the rear of the Toyota GR Supra are optimised by the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer. Tested according to the latest WLTP test criteria for vehicles with Otto particle filters, it offers a sonorous sound and a sporty look, thanks to two tailpipes in carbon or black anodised stainless steel.
Even more sporty is the rear of the Toyota GR Supra with the carbon “Racing” rear wing with or without optional Gurney flap. The high-strength and durable lightweight construction with aluminium feet increases downforce at the rear axle and gives the rear a more beefy appearance.
The aerodynamic counterpart is the AC Schnitzer front splitter, which is particularly easy to mount. The matt black splitter manufactured in ASA (Acrylnitril-Styrol-Acrylester) requires no further painting. It also ensures even better downforce values and gives the body of the Toyota GR Supra an even more crouched appearance.
The AC Schnitzer aerodynamics range for the Toyota GR Supra is rounded off by the license plate holder for the front license plate and the carbon bonnet vents. These air outlets for engine compartment ventilation are triangular in shape and are placed on the right and left of the bonnet. This further improves the exhaust air situation of the engine.
Agility and driving dynamics are drastically improved by the RS coilover suspension, which is infinitely height-adjustable and can also be adjusted in rebound and compression stages. In connection with the simultaneous lowering of the vehicle’s centre of gravity by lowering the front and rear axles by 25 mm, cornering handling is significantly improved and driving fun with the Toyota GR Supra is also increased. At the same time, the AC Schnitzer RS coilover suspension offers high residual spring travel and good driving comfort, making it just as suitable for everyday use as it is on the racetrack.
For the improved looks, a suspension spring set is also available, which lowers the vehicle by approx. 15 mm.
Even though all AC Schnitzer components for the Toyota GR Supra are available as individual parts of a modular system. You can choose between rims in 20 inch size as AC1 Light Alloy Rims in BiColor or Anthracite or AC3 Lightweight Forged Wheels in Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite/Silver.
For the interior AC Schnitzer offer aluminium accessories such as shift paddles, a pedal set with matching footrest, a keyholder and a cover for the iDrive System Controller.
