We promise not to make any Toyota jokes with this new video because, ironically enough, this is one of those times where its increased acceleration becomes a great thing.
This Toyota Supra, which was built by Boost Logic and fully tuned by Tuning Concepts, ran at such staggering speeds at the recently-concluded TX2K10 National Supra Meet we still couldn’t believe that it blasted off in speeds that even a Nissan GT-R and a Corvette ZR1 couldn’t match.
The Supra registered a quarter-mile run in just 7.59 seconds at a recorded speed of 190 mph. For comparisons sake, GT-R posted a same-distance time of 11.6 seconds at over 120 mph while the ZR1 clocks in at 11.3 seconds at 131 mph. That’s a difference of about four seconds in time, which, in the fast paced world of sports car tuning, is an astoundingly huge margin.
For all the times that we’ve made jokes at Toyota’s expense regarding the current crisis they’re in these days, it’s refreshing to see a Toyota put its acceleration to good use.
