If we don’t factor in drag races and tuning jobs, we haven’t heard anything about the new Toyota GR Supra since the beginning of the year, when they launched the base model in the UK.

However, the Japanese car manufacturer now has a new version out, the GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Edition. Named after the Spanish circuit where they hosted the official media drive, it is limited to 90 units, all of them destined for Europe.

Set to launch this spring, it has a Horizon Blue paintwork, black accents, 19-inch alloy wheels and red brake calipers. The cabin sports black Alcantara upholstery and blue stitching and there’s a special plaque on the dashboard that reveals the production number next to a silhouette of the track.

Standard equipment includes carbon fiber trim, an 8.8-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 10-speaker sound system. Toyota’s Safety Sense+ bundle of driver assistance gear is also included, bringing pre-collision safety with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane change alert, blind spot control, lane departure alert, rear cross traffic alert, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, etc.

Power comes from a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six, which produces 340 PS (335 HP / 250 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, and is coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Edition can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds.

The “unique and exclusive design elements, added to the great charisma of the GR Supra as a sports car of pure essence, will make the GR Supra Jarama Racetrack Edition a true collector’s item”, Toyota said.

Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division says it might work its magic on the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace.

SVO boss Michael van der Sande has long wanted to tweak and upgrade the I-Pace and it was widely thought the new flagship model would take inspiration from the I-Pace eTrophy race car. However, van der Sande has since revealed that SVO wasn’t involved in the development of the I-Pace and has, therefore, been delayed in getting its hands on it.

“We got to the I-PACE late,” he told Car Sales in a recent interview. “Normally we like to be at the table in the early platform discussions so we can impact and tech protect for an SVO derivative and, frankly, we were not there so it’s much more difficult to do something with that car in a viable way.”

Despite this, he said SVO “might still do something with the I-Pace, because that car has a lot of life left in it.”

Van der Sande hasn’t specified precisely what modifications SVO could make to the I-Pace but suggested the electric powertrain opens up a range of possibilities to boost performance.

“Our car will have more power than the underlying core cars, but there’s a bunch of stuff we can do to the powertrain, chassis tuning, and clearly all the other attributes of an SV car,” he explained. “Multi-mode motors, e-diff, torque vectoring, there’s lots of opportunity to tune the car to suit the character of what you want to achieve.”

Powering the flagship I-Pace are two electric motors that combine to deliver 395 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. These motors receive their juice from a 90 kWh LG Chem lithium-ion battery.

Last year, Scuderia Ferrari had one of its worst years ever in Formula 1 and is hopeful that its new car, dubbed the SF21, will reverse its fortunes.

The car, unveiled just a few days before pre-season testing begins, sports a new livery that sees the rear end of the racer adorned in a dark shade of burgundy while the rest of the bodywork is painted in a more vibrant shade of matte red. The Mission Winnow logo is also finished in bright green.

Ferrari has revised the aerodynamics of its F1 car, using its available development tokens to alter the rear end, including the gearbox and suspension system. The Italian squad has also developed a new front wing and a new concept nose.

Significant developments have also been made to the 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 powertrain.

“Along with our colleagues on the chassis side, we worked a lot on the layout of the power unit, to make the overall design of the car as efficient as possible,” power unit director Enrico Gualtieri said. “With the internal combustion engine, we focused on increasing its level of thermal efficiency, in conjunction with our partner Shell, and this has produced an improvement in lap time that we estimate at over one-tenth of a second.”

The Ferrari SF21 will make its track debut in Bahrain on Thursday for a filming day where it can complete up to 100 km (62 miles) of running. Racing for the team this year will be Charles Leclerc and new teammate Carlos Sainz Jr.
