Toyota Supra Toyota Supra was called Selick in its “childhood”. However, it is no longer just grab power, and it is “build muscle” getting inline “six”. This force was a bit crowded in the same compact body and machine made longer by almost 13 centimeters. Celica Supra developed as a “charged” version for the next eight years, and then turned to the Supra, which we all know and love. In 1986, the market goes first independent Toyota Supra. Family ties are broken on both sides: the novelty of the name disappeared word Celica, while the SELIC drive now in the base case front. Platforms, of course, is now also become different. The car has received a lot of technical bells and whistles, laid on the status. So, for example, the suspension is double wishbone on both axles has been supplemented by electronically controlled shock absorbers that the driver himself could translate into sports mode or to leave at the mercy of management automation. In the latter case, the suspension immediately clamped, had only to press the gas to the floor, dramatically slow down or start to maneuver at high speed. In addition, the “inlet” A collector of variable length, to optimize the air flow at any speed. The base engine for the Japanese Supra became only a two-liter inline “six”. Strange like, but if we take into account the then realities of the Japanese tax commitment of Toyota to “daunsayzingu” becomes justified: for customers large and powerful cars had to annually pay a lot more taxes, such a “stripped-down» Supra fall within the scope of benefits (by the way, the amount of motor does not interfere with the supra develop 160 hp). But the really standard engine in this generation of machines has a three-liter “six» 7M-GE, already in the atmospheric version to issue 200 “horses”, and with the addition of self-toyotovskogo turbocharger CT26 and the letters “T” in the index is developing 232 forces. In this embodiment, the Toyota Supra is exported, but there was also something else. You, of course, remember the famous 1JZ index. It is thanks to this engine Supra received the current status of the legend. The irony is that it was on half a liter less than the export engine 7M, but its supercharged version even “stock” develops 280 hp (And we know that in Japan, this figure could actually mean anything). The present popularity this engine was due to the ease of modifications: without prejudice to the reliability can be squeezed out of it to 600 “horses”, but you can “shake” up to 1000 hp – Has more serious trouble, but still in the “home” section. According to the network rumors about 1400 strong supra with a fully native engine block, but if it’s true, and how much it was enough – a mystery. In 1992 came the next generation of Supra – “Aerodinamit” – so dubbed its advertisers. The rapid and smooth shape, a huge rear wing – a Supra remember and know all without exception, and its engine 2JZ-GTE – a real fetish for tuners from around the world, but inserts Turbo it is not depicted, so – that’s another story.
