    • What the 2020 GR Toyota Supra B58 looks and sounds like accelerating from 0-200 kph

      The new Supra is polarizing to say the least. Whether you are a fan of Toyota reskinning a Z4 or not the B58 carryover is big for BMW and Toyota tuners alike. So exactly how quick is the new Toyota Supra and how does the B58 under the hood sound?


      Check out this 0-200 kph acceleration video below. The B58 actually sounds pretty good and is the best sounding factory BMW turbo I6 of the modern era thus far. The S58 may improve on the exhaust tone and considering what the S55 sounds like let's hope it does.

      In the video it looks like they brake torque to about 2000 rpm. It takes off without any drama and the automatic shifts quickly if not early. Perhaps the tach is having trouble keeping up with the actual revs?

      It's fairly quick based on the speedometer reading but that can not be trusted for accuracy so we will have to wait for actual GPS timing. It certainly moves for the quoted horsepower rating and the shifts are quick and precise.

        It kind of sounds like it may have active sound (which makes sense because it’s a BMW), so I wouldn’t trust that the exhaust note heard on the interior footage is what it actually sounds like.

        Sure but you turn that crap off and give it an exhaust and you're dealing with a pretty nice engine note compared to the S55, N55, etc.
