In the thrilling world of automotive wonders, there's a little mean roadster that's stolen my heart—the 2023 GR Supra by Toyota. Now, let me tell you, I stand tall at 6'2", and I slipped into this beast of a machine with ease. It's almost like this car was tailor-made for someone as tall and dashing as myself.

Picture this: a car that's not just a mode of transportation, but a true masterpiece on wheels. Toyota's GR Supra isn't your average run-of-the-mill vehicle; it's a symphony of excitement, style, and drama that compensates for the brand's more subdued sedans, hatchbacks, and SUVs.

Built alongside the BMW Z4 convertible, the GR Supra boasts impeccable build quality and an interior adorned with materials that are not just simple but undeniably handsome.Under the hood, you've got options that cater to your need for speed. Sure, the entry-level 255-hp turbocharged four-cylinder packs a punch, but where's the fun in stopping there? What truly sets my soul on fire is the optional 382-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter BMW inline-six engine. This little beast propels the two-seater forward with the force of a thousand stallions, making it soar through the streets like a majestic bird in flight.

But here's the kicker—this roadster is rear-wheel drive only. Now, I know what you're thinking, "Doesn't that make it a handful to handle?" Not at all! The GR Supra's chassis is as sure-footed as a mountain goat, and its steering is sharper than a sushi chef's knife. When you throw this car into twisty roads or race courses, it doesn't just come alive; it dances with the grace of a ballerina and roars like a lion. Icouldn't get enough of that sound.

Now, I must admit, it does have its quirks. Some folks might grumble about its borrowing habits from the BMW parts bin, and yes, the sweptback exterior design does create some blind spots large enough to hide a herd of elephants. But you know what they say—every rose has its thorns, and these quirks only add character to the GR Supra.

So, why do I love this little mean roadster so much? It's not just a driver's car; it's an enthusiast's dream come true. It's the kind of car that makes you want to take the long way home, just so you can savor every moment behind the wheel.

We all know that Toyota has a reputation for being a fairly traditional car company. That changed when Toyota made the GR Supra and returned to its roots. The GR Supra isn't just a car; it's an experience—a thrilling, heart-pounding, and utterly delightful experience that makes it an pure

absolute no-brainer for our nomination for AutoFOCUS AWARD in the "Best design" category as wella s teh "Best Performance" Category.

Its virtually impossible not to like or love somethiing about the Supra GR from its dynamic and ultra-sexy exterior design to is driver-focused interior dash and drive options, to its on-the track attitude, daring you to drive it with intention and passion. I was honored to oblige.

In the world of automotive brilliance, the 2023 GR Supra reigns supreme, and I, for one, am head over heels in love with every inch of its stylish, ferocious, and undeniably charming existence.
