“Another Beemer in the garage? Are you sure?” were only some comments from sceptics about the new Supra GR. We gladly answered. Starting with the point that, in our opinion, right now it is BMW that delivers the best entry-level supercars out there in the market, so why regard a strength as a weakness? Then, in terms of its character, the new Supra is not a carbon copy of the Beemer at all: its suspension is set up more eagerly, it handles and looks differently. The experience we’ve had so far gives us no reason to doubt about its competence on either road or track and our Club members have an opportunity to be among the first to test that in a variety of conditions. And finally, just think about it: new cars with complete with warranty, being fun to drive on a well-controlled handling limit, are few. Consider how Supra GR situates on the map: while not a real supercar, it delivers most of their potential. At the same time, it is a fiery and unhampered bad boy, in the vein of Mazda MX-5. Whoever loves driver’s cars, will hardly ever need more than that.
