Not to be confused with the first-gen Toyota Celica Supra in 1978, the Toyota Supra nameplate started to become a model of its own in 1986 after cutting ties with the Celica. Since then, the Japanese in-line six sports car has built a reputation in the automotive scene that is currently being strengthened by the latest GR Supra (MKV).

The Toyota GR Supra 35th Anniversary Edition will be available in two variants based on the model’s SZ-R and top-of-the-line RZ. Although no powertrain upgrades will be made, the GR Supra special edition will bear cosmetic upgrades to pay homage to the nameplate’s milestone.

Both variants will be added with 19-inch forged aluminum wheels in matte black and a carbon-fiber trim in the dashboard with the “35th Anniversary” badge.

However, only the SZ-R 35th Anniversary Edition will be equipped with sports brakes, matte black door mirrors, and a sports brake pedal. It can be finished with five color options, namely White Metallic, Prominence Red, Ice Gray Metallic, Lightning Yellow, and Black Metallic.

Toyota will roll out 35 units of each variant and has arranged a lottery system for lucky buyers. The automaker said that interested Japanese customers will have to apply online until August 31. The draw will be initiated on September 7, 2021.
