Buying Guide

Good

  • 'Toad' shaped Supra (the orange car at the end of 'The Fast and the Furious') with 326bhp and choice of six-speed manual box or four-speed auto.
  • 4515mm long by 1810 wide.
  • Fully adjustable air suspension. Aerotop had lift out targa roof panels (as per 'Fast & Furious' Supra).
  • Type R bodykit brings the high flying rear spoiler which is how most UK cars were sold.
  • Expect 160mph top speed, 0-60 in 5 seconds and 17-20mpg.
  • Toyota generally 10th lowest average warranty repair costs in 2003 Warranty Direct Reliability index (index 74.95 v/s lowest 31.93) Link:- www.reliabilityindex.co.uk

Bad

  • Official UK imports stopped in 1996, but independent imports continued with the result that most post 1993 Supras in the UK are grey imports.
  • Need the Japanese RZ model for 280 - 326bhp (Japan gives conservative estimate for legal reasons).
  • Non turbo Japanese SZ puts out 225bhp and doesn't usually have a rear spoiler.

Watch

  • Check spec carefully.
  • Know what you're buying.
