Toyota Supra

The Toyota Supra is another very popular tuning car you see on display at car shows all around the world. When you think of Toyota drift cars the Supra is probably the first car that comes to mind. It is Toyota’s answer to Nissan’s Skyline GT-R.

Being RWD you can get the older generations, the Mark I and the Mark II that started in the late 70s, but the more popular models are the Mark III and Mark IV. Especially the latest model, the Mark IV with the 3.0 liter twin-turbo 2JZGE engine, is highly popular.

It’s not a cheap car though, but most people know that in compensation it doesn't take a lot of money to upgrade the engine. The engines internals are incredibly strong and can withstand tuning up to 500hp+ without modifications. It's a great car, a great engine and has tons of potential. It’s the best performance car Toyota has to offer.

Unfortunately there are no plans for a new model. There were rumors that a new model was being tested on the Nurburgring in Germany, but it turned out to be the new Lexus LF-A.
