This 1993 Toyota Supra SZ is an interesting one. It has a 2JZ-GTE swapped in, and retains the stock 5-speed manual, sometimes referred to as the Aristo swap (after the JZS147 Toyota Aristo). Considering the big mechanical change, the body has been left relatively lightly modified. With stock Supras being as rare as stock Evo’s, finding stock-ish looking examples is refreshing. This car absolutely hauls, surprising given the fact that the motor really isn’t a built-up turnkey monster. The rear tires fortunately offer enough grip to keep everything on track during hard 2nd-gear pulls. Adding the Kakimoto exhaust to the mix also gives the sort of sound that JDM enthusiast want to hear on their cars. Overall, this is a great option for someone looking for the Supra turbo experience, but at a lower price point than the full RZ.
Starting production in 1993 and lasting until 2002, the A80 Toyota Supra was Toyota’s answer to the GTR. With an available twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE and 6-speed Getrag V160/161 transmission (depending on year of production), the Supra stood ahead of many of its competitors, including cars costing tens of thousands more. Horsepower in Japan was limited to 276 per the Gentleman’s Agreement, but export models were increased to 320. The body was also an aggressive leap forward with styling that has not shown its age, and completes its iconic status. 0-60 was achieved in 4.6 seconds with the quarter mile marker flying past in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph. For stopping, the Supra utilized a Formula-One style braking system that allowed it to go from 70-0 in just 149 ft, a record that stood until 2004 when it was finally beaten by the vastly more expensive Porsche Carrera GT.
