The Toyota Supra is a grand tourer that was manufactured from
1978 to 2002 and was derived from the Toyota Celica although it was
both longer and wider. First, second, and third generation Supras
were assembled at Tahara plant in Tahara, Aichi while the fourth
generation Supra was assembled at the Motomachi plant in Toyota
City. The Supra also traces much of its roots back to the Toyota
2000GT with the main instance being its engine. The first three
generations were offered with a direct descendant to the Toyota
Crown's and 2000GT's 'M' engine. All four generations of Supra
produced have an inline six-cylinder engine. In 1998, Toyota ceased
sales of the Supra in the United States and in 2002 Toyota
officially stopped production of the Supra in Japan. The Supra has
appeared in numerous video games, movies, music videos and TV
shows. Some of the most notable appearances include the Gran
Turismo, Need for Speed and The Fast and the Furious film

This is a genuine UK supplied Supra automatic with many TRD
upgrades and one that has had significant investment in recent
years resulting in a concours example. A superb history folder
accompanies this Supra with lots of recent work carried out by
Supra specialist Chris Wilson. This includes a full engine rebuild
in 2007 at 115,780 miles, with detailed photographs and various
upgrades/improvements. The three-litre, twin hybrid turbo unit runs
supremely well. In addition to this, the suspension now has Chris
Wilson Bilstein shock absorbers with custom springs. The brakes
have been overhauled and interior trim replaced, together with a
later model dashboard. The list of work carried out on this is
comprehensive, the conclusion is of a car that defies its 21 years
of age. Visually a car that looks virtually new with performance to
match; supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT
test certificate valid until 19th April 2017, a
magnificent example at a modest cost given the estimate.
