The Toyota Supra A70 was launched in 1986 and remained in production until 1992. It was available with a choice of four types of engines – 2.0-liter SOHC, DOHC, DOHC twin-turbo and 3.0-liter DOHC turbo, and since then it has gradually evolved its sportiness.
In 1987, the wide-bodied 3.0 GT Limited with blister fender was introduced. This was following by wide-bodies being added to the 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter cars. Out of all models, the 3.0 GT version with the 3.0-liter DOHC turbo received the most attention.
However, this model was discontinued, to be replaced by a 2.5 GT twin-turbo model boasting a 1JZ-GTE engine that developed 276hp and 318.2 lb-ft of torque. This produced the most impressive model in the Toyota Supra range.
Despite the 3.0-liter version’s lack of sharpness of a sports car, it is ideal for cruising and long drives. For a sportier drive, the Supra 2.5-twin-turbo-R delivers an exciting front engine rear-wheel drive experience, whilst being comparatively easy to control.
