Toyota Supra 1995
Whenever we export a Toyota Supra I feel great. Actually, I feel super. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) Why? Because one of the reasons we like doing this business of exporting used cars from Japan to countries like the UK, Canada, New Zealand, the US, and Australia is that we can share the fun and joy of reasonably priced, good quality sports and performance cars with other car fans worldwide.
These days if you want a truly quick car that is not too much money you are going to have to buy a used car. The makers of reasonably priced cars are just not giving us anything today like the Supra or the Skyline GT-R or the faster Imprezas and Evos. If you want low fives or even sub fives in your 0-60 times and you don’t want (or, like me, can’t afford) a Porsche, then you’ve got to go Japanese turbo from the 1990s. These cars are quick, really quick; and well made, really well made; like this 1995 Supra 80 that was made on one of Toyota’s Lexus assembly lines.
This car is so powerful stock that you’ll need some very fair launching skills to get the factory’s claimed time of 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, but even without such skill, you are still going to be in the low fives. 44kg/m of torque and over 320hp in a car that weighs under 1500kgms; good thing that it is one of the best braking cars ever so that you can stop safely from the rocket speeds this car will reach before you’ve had time to think to yourself: “I’m going rather fast!”
And this orange dream car shows another of the excellent points of the Supra 80: Visual tuning. The flowing lines and curves of the Supra 80 lend themselves to the mounting of beautifully shaped aero parts like special bumpers and trim. The car looks as fast as it is. Veilside has done a beautiful job on this one. (And I have not even started to tell you about the interior. But just look at the photos here of the jet fighter cockpit of this machine!)
Beautifully modified and tuned cars like this Toyota Supra 80 are available in Japan from the used car auctions and the specialist dealers and it will be our pleasure to find you the right one so that you can join in the fun.
