HKS Builds 2JZ Powered A90 Supra Drift Car With 700bhp

The Supra has certainly split opinion. Is it a Toyota, or should we give in to its BMW powertrain and call it just that? Let us know what you think in the comments, but once you’ve done that, let’s just admit that we don’t really care and this new halo car from Toyota should be celebrated.

The best way to do such a thing is by burning some rubber, but if you’re HKS and have what seems to be infinite resources and a spare 2JZ engine, then I’ll admit, this is another good way. You can see it in action below…

With the official HKS driver, Nobuteru Taniguchi at the wheel, it shredded its way up the Goodwood Hill Climb course last weekend, and while it shares many commonalities with Daigo Saito’s drift car – the same 3.4-litre HKS enlargement kit and an HKS GTIII-4R turbocharger – this one has slightly less power, but more than enough to light the rears.

There are Hipermax dampers at each corner, and the body has been widened and crowned with a large rear wing.

This A90 is “a car that we hope would be a great example and become a good reference point for others,”

It seems as though the company is adamant for other companies to inject more Japanese design and engineering into the car, and hell, we can’t complain.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
