The Toyota Supra Gets A 450 Horsepower Manhart Overhaul
Have you been on the fence about picking up the new Toyota Supra? Well maybe the Manhart Supra GR-450 will push you over the edge. The German tuning company has gone and added 110 horsepower to the stock 3-liter turbocharged inline-six, bringing it up to the 450 HP (hence the name) and 479 lb-ft of torque.
Manhart has mostly accomplished this gain in power through its MHtronik Powerbox ECU remap. Although, they’ve also redone the exhaust system, adding Manhart electronic valve controls, OPF-Delete pipes, and a catalytic converter-less racing downpipe to make the car sound a little more beastly when desired. Of course, they have also added the option to disable auto start/stop at red lights, as well as the Automatic Sound Design (fake exhaust sounds) in the cabin. Additionally, carbon fibre exhaust caps are one of many sweet options.
In a very German fashion, Manhart’s brochure for the GR-450 says they did away with the stock suspension, “because of not being good enough in [their] opinion.” So, the GR-450 comes with a KW variant 3 suspension, which lowers the car and increases high-speed handling, especially around corners.
Of course, Manhart also amended the styling of the supra, with red line accents and aggressive 20″ Concave One diamond polished rims.
