Toyota Reveals GR Supra Sport Top SEMA Build

Toyota has revealed a second wave of custom SEMA vehicles, including the 2021 GR Supra Sport Top.

The company previously unveiled four builds in its wave one SEMA360 Showcase presentation, held Nov. 2, 2020. SEMA360 is the Specialty Equipment Market Association’s (SEMA) online program connecting the automotive aftermarket industry in a year that made the traditional SEMA Show impossible.

“Our wave one reveals whet Toyota fans’ appetite with four creations – a bold, hand-painted GR Supra, two GR Supra drift cars, and an outrageous Overlanding-ready Tacoma pickup,” said Ed Laukes, group vice president – Toyota Division Marketing. “We’re proud to show off our latest creation, the 2021 GR Supra Sport Top.”

The new 2021 GR Supra Sport Top concept is a follow up to the 2020 GR Supra Heritage Edition that debuted at Toyota’s 2019 SEMA Show display, exciting Supra fans worldwide with its custom visual and performance upgrades paying homage to the iconic MKIV Supra from the late ‘90s.

Conceptualizing an open-air tribute to removable-top Supra models of the past, the team put much thought into the unprecedented task of removing the roof and a significant part of the GR Supra’s structure, Toyota said. The crew ensured structural rigidity by reinforcing large sections of the vehicle’s frame. The now removable roof includes two composite panels that can be stored in the car’s trunk. Unlike a “T-Top” car, there is no center bar down the middle. As a sibling to the GR Supra Heritage Edition, the Sport Top delivers similar styling cues like the MKIV-inspired basket handle wing and round taillights.  At the same time, it has a striking profile all its own that includes a sexy black piano-finish canopy over the top.

The 500-plus horsepower GR Supra Heritage Edition debuted late last year, and it makes an encore appearance in 2020 as the inspiration for this year’s GR Supra Sport Top. This one-off creation painted in Re-entry Red features retro-inspired custom headlights, taillights and MKIV-style rear wing. It is equipped with various upgrades such as bigger brakes, tuned engine, turbocharger and ECU and custom front and rear suspension.
