Toyota revealed a new one-off custom Supra today to add to its list of builds for SEMA’s online event, SEMA360, earlier this year. Based on the one-off Heritage Edition, it uses the same body kit, wings, and wheels. But there’s one major addition: A two-piece removable targa top. The open-top Supra is back.
Called the GR Supra Sport Top, this new one-off Toyota sports car is a tribute to the Mk IV Supra’s optional one-piece removable targa piece. This new roof is a manually removable two-piece item made from composite materials, designed to be stored in the car’s trunk when not in use.
Like the Heritage edition, the Sport Top’s rounded taillight inserts and basket-handle rear wing are also meant to harken back to the Mk IV. Those 19-inch HRE wheels shroud big Brembo brakes, while the whole car sits three inches lower thanks to new suspension.
There’s no word on if the GR Supra Sport Top has also been tuned to 503 horsepower like the Heritage edition car, though considering almost everything else has been carried over, there’s a good chance it has.
Toyota confirmed the Sport Top is purely a one-off for now, with no plans to put any version of it into production. Structural rigidity aside, we’re sure an open top would improve the driving experience. That, and a manual transmission. We can dream, right?
Do you think Toyota should put the Supra Sport Top into production? Would you buy one? Let us know in the comments below.
