First debuting in 1978, the Supra is Japanese giants Toyota’s marquee sports car, and was based off the liftback Celica, but made slightly longer in order to accommodate the new inline 6 cylinder engine that produces much of the car’s incredible power.
The initial Supra boasted a 2.0 litre engine with 120 bhp, however, Toyota have made some real engineering improvements in the last 40 years, and the newest variant of the Supra now has a 3 litre engine and has an astounding 387 bhp. Combine this with its incredible handling, and it starts to become apparent why this vehicle is such an icon of its time.
Perhaps most famously known for its appearance in the Fast and Furious film franchise, the Supra has become a vastly desired sports car, as it holds similar statistics to many supercars but at a fraction of the price. It hits 0 - 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, meaning this car is astonishingly quick considering price point.
Alongside this, Toyota’s popularity as one of the most reliable manufacturers has helped this car shift over 250,000 models since its inception - remarkable figures.
