Watch the Fast and the Furious, you'll get the idea!!
Nothing at all. These cars are built like Volvo 850's!! i.e. tanks.
Don't get me wrong, cars have problems if you buy a bad one, but these cars are generally bulletproof :)
Being reviewed is my recently acquired '94 Supra Twin Turbo 6 speed with UK spec brakes all round.
Generally the car's amazing, it's highly sought after in the 6 speed, and if you can afford to modify them tastefully, you'd be astounded how much these cars can ruin a Porsche owner's life for the whole split second you fly past him in only 4th!
My car was carefully sourced, very low mileage, colour dark red, and mainly a 6 speed gearbox.
These cars are fetching £10k plus now, due to the gearboxes being so rare, and the twin turbo factory cars becoming rare as well.
There's a few that are converted to big single turbos or high output twin turbos, so you have a vast choice indeed.
These Supras can withstand 700bhp on the standard internals, and the turbos can take 450bhp unless you have the steel internal turbos, which can take up to 600bhp.
My car is running 412bhp with only slight mods at the moment, and is so fast it's indescribable. I have UK spec brakes, a very rare twin polished Apexi induction kit, facelift lights, veilside split rims and more. It's the performance I love really, because I love embarrassing 911s and Lotus Exiges, it's so fun :)
The presence of these cars is like that of a Ferrari.. very wide car, staggered wheels, intoxicating colours, and the sound when the turbo spools is spine tingly.
The ride is very comfortable, unless you've upgraded to full coilovers like mine, which sacrifices ride height and comfort a tad, but it's worth it for the TVR handling round bends.
Reliability is this car's real name, and Toyota's for that matter. Reasonable to service, and it's very rare that anything goes wrong unless you're stupid and negligent.
Only down side to these cars is the FUEL; if you like your money and good mileage, don't buy this car, and if you feel slightly insecure or don't like standing out, don't buy this car.
Not sure what else I can really say, unless you'd rather watch the original review by Tiff Needell, but I love my Toyota Supra, and when I have my big HKS twin turbos put in, this car's setup should be in the 700bhp territory.
P.s if you buy one, buy a manual haha :) Don't be lazy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
