Toyota Supra got a manual transmission

US SPONSOR

Toyota presented the Supra with a manual six-speed gearbox for the version with a three-liter straight six-cylinder engine, which will now be offered with the previous eight-speed automatic.

Both transmissions are the work of the ZF company and are designed for the power and torque of the BMW units that the Supra uses. Toyota representatives emphasized at a promotion in Park City, Utah, that its engineers collaborated on adjusting the manual transmission to give it a character that matches the Supra.

A clutch with a larger friction surface and stronger springs were installed, and a certain amount of acoustic material was removed to save weight.

According to impressions from the test drive, the maximum torque starts to be delivered from 1800 rpm and is available up to 5000 rpm, and is available up to a maximum of 6500 engine rpm, where the red field begins.

The Supra with a manual transmission is somewhat slower than with an automatic transmission – acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 4.2 seconds, compared to the previous 3.9 seconds, which is a consequence of the shortening of the last gear compared to the automatic transmission.

In the American market, the Supra with the new manual transmission costs the same as with the automatic transmission.
