Video: Souped-up Toyota Supra runs quarter-mile in 5 seconds at speeds of over 190 mph

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.

Amazing speed, I hope that i can beat the AMS Tuned GT-R.

Well, of course. it can out perform the ’Vette and GT-R. They’ve already put all together the very best parts just have that kind of speed.

Not bad. Well, not bad at all. It is a nice gift, I just don’t know on what age range is the best one for it. Is it the old ones who likes cars or the young ones who also likes cars. They like it so much that they take it out for a spin when you are sleeping. lol. Since it is cheaper than bailing them out of jail or paying some tow truck company, I might get them this.
