Toyota's already showing off a TRD performance Supra

Toyota
has unveiled the TRD version of its brand-new Supra at an exclusive car show in Japan, 'Osaka Auto Messe.'
While the colour is fairly sedated for a car of this calibre, it works well to give the modifications a stealthier aesthetic.
Carbon-fibre door skirts and aggressive front and rear splitters give the car a look fit for touring car racing, while the intakes in the doors get filled up with “door garnish.”
A small spoiler rounds out the changes to the TRD.
The wheels have been upgraded to 19 inches, and they're now lighter and look a lot better than the standard wheels thanks to a bit of dish, and the multi-spoke style. They're finished in black and are wrapped in Michelin tires.
Currently, the regular Supra makes 340 horsepower from its 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six, which helps it get to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds.

Toyota didn't say what was happening under the hood of the TRD version, but they have said in the past its performance version wouldn't get any more power, just added lightness.
'We know if you take out 100 kg, it's a completely different car—you don't even need any more power,' Toyota's performance chief Tetsuya Tada said about racing and track-limited versions of the Supra.
