The new Toyota Supra has fans freaking out.

After years of demands from lovers and rumors since the new Toyota GR Supra first launched, it is finally adding a manual transmission to 2023 model cars which is a great improvement for manual transmission lovers

Originally only offered with an eight-speed automatic, the updated Supra’s six-speed manual will be restricted to six-cylinder models

Finally adding a level of driver concentration fans of previous Supra iterations desired, manual models feature the same 382hp as automatic straight-six variants, which are all sent to the rear wheels.

To celebrate the arrival of the manual, a limited run of 500 A91-MT models will be offered in the US – all featuring the new gearbox, along with a new 12-speaker JBL sound system and optional Matte White or ‘CU Later’ Grey paint.

Toyota has made sure to position the gear shifter in an ideal spot in the Supra, with adjustments made to the center console layout to accommodate it perfectly. The shifter is weighted precisely to 200g for the ideal feeling when rowing through the gears.

Also featuring as part of the 2023 Toyota Supra update is a new 19-inch alloy wheel design that’s lighter than before, along with a range of three new colors and a stunning tan leather interior.

Developed in conjunction with BMW, the Supra shares a platform with the Z4 convertible and is built in Austria on a shared production line.

The turbo straight-six that powers the manual Supra is shared with a host of BMW ‘M40i’ models. Four-cylinder models will remain auto-only.
