Tuner builds manual Toyota Supra because Toyota wouldn’t

The new Toyota Supra isn’t offered with a stick and three pedals and in that case, purists were left disappointed, however, a tuning firm by the name of European Auto Group is already working on a manual conversion for the new Supra.

According to CarBuzz, the manual Supra will use all BMW-sourced parts, meaning that the transmission should fit well with the 3.0-litre inline-six engine.

The Texas-based shop is also looking to use a shifter with a cool flip-up knob like the Toyota GR Supra Racing Concept.

For the record, the Supra comes exclusively with a ZF eight-speed gearbox that sends 250 kW of power and 495 Nm of torque to the rear wheels.

According to Toyota, the Supra will hurdle from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
