New Rendering Envisions a Real-Life Need For Speed Toyota Supra

New Rendering Envisions a Real-Life Need For Speed Toyota Supra

Love it or hate it, you still can’t take your eyes away from it

The 2019 SEMA Auto Show hosted no less than five different Toyota Supra concepts. None of them, though, can compete with the audacity of this custom rendering of a tricked-out Toyota Supra created by Ambielec Design.

Inspired by the Need For Speed: Heat video game that was launched earlier this month, this Supra rendering wears what is arguably the wildest wide-body kit we’ve seen on the returning Japanese sports coupe. It’s modified to an extent that the only two possible reactions to this rendering are to either love it or hate it. We’re still not sure where we are on that scale.

Someone Spotted the 2020 Toyota Supra at a Fast and Furious 9 Filming Location, But There's Something Even Better There Too

Someone Spotted the 2020 Toyota Supra at a Fast and Furious 9 Filming Location, But There’s Something Even Better There Too

We see the Paul Walker tribute, Universal!

The production of Fast 9 has begun, and it looks like we’re about to see a handful of new characters in the fold. While most of the cast — sans Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham — will return for the ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, two new additions to the movie are making headlines in the automotive world. No, it’s not John Cena, who, by the way, is in the movie. It’s not even Michael Rooker, who was recently announced as the newest member of the Fast family. The headline grabbers are a pair of cars, specifically a 2020 Toyota Supra Mk5 and a heavily modified, blacked-out Dodge Charger. If the additions of these two beauties aren’t enough to get you excited for Fast 9, then the thought of seeing them in action should get those juices flowing.

Marty's Toyota Truck From “Back To The Future” Gets Full Restoration

Marty’s Toyota Truck From “Back To The Future” Gets Full Restoration

BTTF movie nerds bring the past to the present

The Back To The Future trilogy is one of the most memorable movies Hollywood has ever produced. The movie’s combination of a loveable cast, gripping plot, and timeless soundtrack – combined with the iconic vehicles – really propelled the movie into a cult classic. While the DMC DeLorean played the star role in the film as Doc’s time machine, for many it was Marty McFly’s 1985 Toyota SR5 Xtra Cab pickup that stole the show.

Sadly the Toyota pickups used on screen weren’t treated as well as the DeLorean after filming wrapped. The truck used in the first movie was a prize in a give-away, which was later totaled in a wreck. The truck used in the second and third movies was stolen and used as a drug-runner across the U.S. and Mexican border. Miraculously, the stolen truck was recovered by its owner, who later posted it for sale on Craigslist.

That’s when Patrick Shea bought it and began the restoration process. Now as you’ll discover by watching the AFICIONAUTO video, Shea is a massive BTTF movie buff, who also happens to own the only privately owned DeLorean used on screen. He and his father began the long process of restoring the truck to its on-set appearance. The pair took liberties with restoring the four-cylinder engine, making it a bit peppier than the stock 2.4-liter. Still, the truck is in immaculate condition thanks to a full body-off restoration.

The video is definitely worth the watch, especially for BTTF fans. After all, the Toyota truck was Marty’s idea of a good time, especially when used to drive his girlfriend, Jennifer, up to the lake.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Back to the Future Concept

2016 Toyota Tacoma Back to the Future Concept

October 21, 2015 is a special date for fans of Universal’s Back To The Future trilogy – the date in which Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to, arriving from thirty years in the past. Flying cars, hover boards, self-lacing Nikes, 3D holograms, and video conferencing were all highlights of futuristic tech, though only a handful of technologies made the three-decade leap. Yep, 1985 had high aspirations for 2015.

Toyota, however, has plucked McFly’s 1985 Pickup right out of BTTF Part Two and transplanted its soul into a 2016 Tacoma. The concept truck even makes its debut on October 21 in celebration.

The Tacoma is decked out with tubular bumpers, a roll bar, KC off-road lights, a black paint job, and a throwback TOYOTA graphic on the tailgate. It’s hard to believe how close Toyota’s designers were able to replicate the 30-year-old Toyota Pickup.

Sadly, there’s no word if Toyota will actually produce a limited run of these trucks, but I’d venture to guess not. The closest thing we’re likely to get is a package deal through Toyota’s TRD aftermarket parts program. Even still, that’d be amazingly awesome.

Let’s take a look at McFly’s 21st century ride.

1995 Toyota Supra Turbo MK-IV "The Fast and the Furious"

1995 Toyota Supra Turbo MK-IV "The Fast and the Furious"

The sudden death of actor Paul Walker came as a massive shock to all of us. Popularly known as Brian O’Conner, his contribution to the Fast & Furious series will always be cherished in the hearts of his friends, family and fans alike.

Walker played the character of an undercover cop turned road racer in the movie and starred alongside Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto). The first installment of the movie featured some of the greatest tuner cars of the 1990s and one such car that caught everyone’s attention was the MK IV Toyota Supra.

One of the most famous scenes in the movie was the drag race between the Supra (driven by Paul Walker) and Vin Diesel in his 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, which nearly ended in a dead heat, but not before some intense high-speed action involving a freight train at a railroad crossing and some serious air time.

We take a look at the orange Toyota Supra that rose to fame thanks to its role in the The Fast and the Furious.
