Liberty Walk Has Created the Craziest Wide Body Kit for the 2020 A90 Toyota Supra
There’s a fine line between madness and genius and the jury’s still out on this oneby Tudor Rus, on LISTEN 02:26
We’ve seen Liberty Walk churn out wide body kits for Lamborghinis, Mustangs, Porsches, and BMWs, so we know what sort of awesomeness can come out of its workshops. Speaking of BMWs, the tuner’s latest work adds a racy flavour to the 2020 Toyota Supra but from where we’re sitting, it looks a tad over the top.
Maybe this kit would look better on an out-and-out supercar
There’s a lot happening in the front of Liberty Walk’s latest Supra kit. Sure, we get the massive wheel arch add-ons that actually make sense when it comes to a wide body kit, but the front end looks like LW designers tried too hard.
Remember, this kit is supposed to be street legal, and as weird as it is to say it, it simply has too much racing DNA baked in.
The same story runs in the back. In fact, the cleanest area on this kit is the side profile, which actually flows nicely from the front wheel to the rear. We also like the rear wing. Speaking of which, here’s the full list of body components that this kit entails:
- front diffuser
- rear diffuser
- rear wing
- wide body fenders
- side skirts
- door panels
- rear fender
- front canard
- hood (optional)
Unfortunately, there are no changes to the Supra’s powertrain, so what you’re getting is just an aesthetic-altering treatment that will leave you without ¥1,595,000 ($15,950) or ¥1,903,000 ($19,030) should you opt for the Liberty Walk hood as well.
In other Supra-related news, the Japanese-German sports car got some neat upgrades for the 2021 model year, including a power boost from 335 to 382 horsepower (47 more horses than before) and we’re told Toyota also did some work to stiffen the chassis and retune the suspension - all in the name of better handling.

What’s more, you can now buy a Supra with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine banging under the hood, which is lighter and also cheeper than the straight-six version. It cranks out 225 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, but it will still shoot from naught to 60 mph in five seconds on to a top speed of 155 mph.
