This Toyota GR Supra is a Tribute to Paul Walker, but is It worth the Price?

LISTEN 02:15

When we hear Toyota Supra, we often think of Paul Walker, as he drove an orange A80 Supra in the 2001 “The Fast and Furious.” Paul loved the Supra so much he bought one himself – a 1995 white A80 Supra. Paul’s personal Mk IV Supra was used for the final scene of the 2015 “Furious 7”, where a CGI version of the late actor drove into the distance. Now, TOM’s Racing and the Japanese magazine, Safari have teamed up in order to make a spiritual successor to the white Supra, based on the new A90 GR Supra.

The collaboration spawned three models of the GR Supra, inspired by Paul Walker’s personal, 1995 Toyota Supra. Like Walker’s Mk IV, the tribute car is finished in matte white and sits on 20-inch BBS LM wheels. Various subtle details have been added, such as a slightly revised lower front fascia, new carbon-fiber side skirts, and of course, a tall rear wing that looks like it came straight from an Mk IV Supra.

TOM’s Racing also made sure the car performed as well as it looked, which is why they swapped the stock suspension for KW V3 adjustable coil-overs. They also bumped the power of the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six up from 382 to 420 horsepower.

In Japan, the car’s retail price is set at ¥12,970,000 ($116 547), which is over double the GR Supra’s normal retail price. We are not saying it’s preposterous, but given that you can make a tribute car yourself for a lot less money, the asking price hardly seems justifiable.

Still, if you are considering buying one of the three tribute cars, you can apply for purchase until the end of October. There will most certainly be more than three applications, which is why the three lucky owners will be chosen through a lottery. Although commemorating Paul Walker is as nice of a gesture as it can be, I would still build one myself, especially considering all aftermarket mods done to the tribute cars are off-the-shelve products.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
