The folks over at Car & Driver took a 2020 Toyota Supra over to a dyno to give it a turn and see what sort of power the car puts out. It decided to do this after testing showed the car could run 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds at 113 mph. Toyota and BMW have a history of underrating their cars.
Typically when you run a car on the dyno, you expect to see less power than the ride is rated at the crank due to drivetrain losses. The Supra is rated at 335 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque at the crank. The dyno shows that the Supra made 339 hp at the wheels and 417 lb-ft of torque.
Those numbers are both higher than factory ratings meaning that the engine is making significantly more power than Toyota claims. Why would it do that? Perhaps its a move to lower insurance costs or maybe some sort of agreement with BMW that the Supra wouldn’t outdo the BMW twin. We don’t know why, but it is a beautiful thing.
