Without question, Toyota’s most iconic vehicle, the Supra has a staggering amount of power and speed - which is only matched by it’s superb handling! The Supra has featured in almost every arcade car driving game you can think of.
However, sitting behind the wheel in the arcade doesn’t even provide a fraction of the experience you’ll get when you’re actually in the vehicle. This is the ultimate way to experience the Supra and it truly cannot be emulated until you’re directly in the driver's seat.
The Supra is perhaps best known for its appearance in the Fast and Furious series of films. As the final vehicle that Paul Walker’s character Brian O’Conner wins his infamous street race in, the car gained a lot of notoriety.
However, Fast and Furious were right to use this vehicle. With a stunning 326 bhp, this magnificent beast can hit 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds! It really is a supercar with outstanding performance, and should absolutely be on any car enthusiast bucket list to drive.

You owe me a Ten Second Car
In 2001 Vin Diesel changed the World with just seven words. You owe me a ten second car. The Toyota Supra wasn't born a motorsports and performance legend - so why do we see it now all over Youtube sought after by every JDM speed collector - and witness it smoking Lamborghinis and Mustangs on highways the World over? The allure of the Japanese Domestic Market is so clear and powerful today - and has given us so many icons - Supra MK4; Subaru WRX STi; Nissan Skyline GT-r R34; Mitsubishi Evo.
Some of these cars were increasingly tempting because they were illegal to import into the US for most of the last few decades - and yet featured in movies and games as the World's greatest vehicles. When it comes to import drag cars - the MK4 Supra is king. Famously the Grannas Racing team achieving a 7.17 second run at 205 miles per hour in December 2019 with 'Orange Man Bad' - and a 6.9 second quarter mile at 194mph - making it the fastest 6 speed stick-shift in the World right now.
Calm down a minute because we are getting carried away - admittedly Orange Man Bad is a 1800bhp Supra - which is basically a missile. But it's the speciality of the Supra MK4 to be comfortable being customised right down to the very atoms that make it - hence why it is insanely popular to the modding crowds.
If we dial it back to the predecessors of the MK4 things will start to get less exciting. It originated as part of the 'pony car' craze - instantiated by Ford bringing out the Mustang. Mid sized affordable sedans with big engines. Really the pony cars have had such an influence on what we see and love today - high performance production models developed in league with factory supported racing to gain a marketing edge - sound familiar?
Toyota naturally wanted in - and they rolled out the rear wheel drive Celica in 1970. In 1978 the Celica XX was produced but Toyota America didn't like the name - so they called it the Celica Supra! Just a whisper of what would later happen across the Globe. The Supra underwent multiple different releases - the MK1 and MK2 were disappointingly average; and the MK3 in 1986 got some serious engine improvements but it also gained a lot of weight (500lbs) so it still struggled for performance.
However - in 1987 Toyota stuck a turbocharger on the engine - producing 230BHP - and Toyota officially adopted the Supra name and rebranded it the Supra Turbo. The speed and integrated rear spoiler suddenly made the Supra very desirable.
In 1992 the MK3 evolved into the infamous MK4 - with the creation of a specifically performance straight-six engine - the 1JZ. By 1993 Toyota has shaved 200lbs off the MK4 and introduced the 2JZ engine - which is unsurprisingly a more powerful version of the 1JZ. The 2JZ is a global legend because it was virtually indestructible. So the Supra ditched it's boxy shape; lost weight; and featured one of the greatest engines ever made. The robust nature of the 2JZ meant that car modifiers with moderate experience could swap out a few parts and crank up the boost - in fact out of all the engines ever made few are easier to modify and tune than the 2JZ.
So ridiculous numbers started pouring in - like 800BHP.
The MK4 looked good; had the best engine; rode comfortably; had amazing brakes; would out-perform an Aston Martin; and was half the cost.
The MK4 becoming the star of Fast and Furious turned an entire generation onto the Japanese performance scene - and was the basis of an entire culture. In all of these situations what makes a car like this become legendary - is that production stopped. So now there are only limited numbers of MK4's in the World - and a mint condition one could easily cost six figures.
