1997 Toyota Supra, 53k, 6 speed

This Supra is one of the most well know out there. The car is a great weekend driver. It not only has a lot of horsepower, but can put it all down to the ground with the 355 drag radials. It will win a lot of local car show too.

The car made its first appearance in Turbo magazine in early 2000, generating a dyno-verified 655 rwhp. By early 2001, the exterior of the car had been further modified with a vented Veilside hood and custom venting to the Bomex nose cap. The car was also repainted for the third time, resulting in a stunning electric blue/purple pearl exterior that really enhances the wide body look of the car. It was at this point the vehicle appeared on the cover of Turbo magazine ( and for the second time in that magazine) in March 2001, developing 699 rwhp in the process. Since then it has been in a few other magazines such as Fast Fours and Rotary’s, and appears every month in Turbo Magazine’s advertisement. It won best of show at SILV 2003, and has won a lot of local car shows too. Today the car lays down 733 whp.

The car just had all the maintance stuff done. We are just waiting on a new RPS Carbon Carbon clutch which will be in next week, then the car will be good as new. We just polished some of the engine parts too. Compression and leakdown are good, car is ready to be ripped on. I made 1 pass at the dragstrip in it at 21 PSI, it ran a [email protected], then I got kicked out for no cage. The car hooks and is FAST.



THIS IS NOT A SCAM. This car is sitting in our shop ready to be sold. Please call (503) 289-4020, or email [email protected] for anymore info or questions.

It is tuned for 11.8-12.0 on 114 leaded race gas. It appears our dyno wideband was reading a bit leaner (it can read up to .5 lean depending on car/exhaust config) so we typically just use it as a reference to back up the onboard wideband and to put the fuel curve on the graph.

Great looking car. I am wondering why the power curve looks lacking. The power really drops off the last 1500rpm or so it appears?

Amit, great purchase. I rode in Bill's old car back in Vegas a few years back (maybe 2004??) Great car, nicest owner you could ever want to meet.

You've got a nice stable going there.
