After almost an 18 year gap, Toyota revived its legendary Supra in 2020. And now, for 2022, Toyota has some exciting news for race-car enthusiasts all over the world. The Japanese automobile giant, unveiled its updated trim for the Supra which they call the A91-CF edition, replacing the A91 edition from 2021.
What’s special about the A91-CF and mainly Why the ‘CF’ tag? Well the CF here visibly hints and boasts the carbon fibre body kit which besets around its entire body. And as Toyota claims “They are not just there for the looks, they constitute function!”
However, I must applaud at the styling more than crediting it for significantly increasing the downforce at speed, for now. Those 19-inch matte black wheels and the red Brembo brake package, also accentuate its voluptuous beauty.
Speaking of the mechanical aspects, the CF edition comes with a 382 turbocharged hp from a 3.0 litre inline-six. What sucks is the mandatory eight-speed automatic transmission. A major turn off for the Supra fanatics, ever since the 2020 update.
The Supra would only need 3.9 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 mph.
Now let’s get to the bad news : Toyota is apparently only making 600 of them and all of them within North America. This could potentially break millions of hearts! I mean just look at it! Who wouldn’t want to own a track edition supercar, clad with seductive carbon fibre all over with an estimated price of just 58,000 USD!
And besides it’s a Supra!
Well, I almost forgot to mention the free one-year membership to National Auto Sport Association that is complimentary with the ownership of this vehicle. And that would entitle the owner to a one-day performance driving event. Seems like this one is a complete track focused package!
