The 2020 Toyota GR Supra, the long-awaited successor to the 1980s sports coupe is due to be fitted with advanced suspension technology from the Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio. The company’s Continuously Variable Semi-Active (CVSAe) suspension technology, based on a triple-tube design, has been specified for the car, which goes on sale this spring,
The suspension technology continuously senses road and driving conditions and independently adjusts each damper in real time to help achieve a smooth ride. Each shock features an externally mounted electronic CES8700 valve from Öhlins, which connects to a central electronic control unit (ECU) that can realign damping settings every 10 milliseconds to help optimise ride comfort and control.
“This advanced solution is designed to achieve the optimal balance of performance, comfort and control, helping OEMs to differentiate vehicle ride and handling characteristics in an increasingly competitive market,” said Neville Rudd, senior vice president and general manager, OE shocks and struts at DRiV, the parent company of Monroe.
