2JZ, NOS & Underglow: A Fast & Furious Inspired A70 Supra

At first glance, this A70 Toyota Supra appears to be the result of an owner with some deep love for the Fast and Furious franchise (or Wild Speed as the Japanese call it). Lamborghini doors, underglow, and a custom aero kit with custom paint and graphics all point to that.

However, like most things in Japan, the more you dig, the more your realize how many more layers there are. And the T-Get Works Supra, as found as Tokyo Auto Salon last weekend, has a lot of layers.


The owner purchased the A70 around 12 years ago, and ever since then has been evolving its style and purpose.


Often, a car with such an outlandish exterior will be lacking in other areas, but that’s not the case here. Not only did a later A80 series Supra donate its dashboard to the cause, but also its 3.0-liter twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE engine.


But it’s far from a stock 2JZ. You can see the twin GCG Garrett GTX2871R turbos, but what you can’t see are the HKS forged pistons, Tomei connecting rods, and other various supporting mods. All told, the setup is reputedly good for a reliable 650hp, with an extra 200hp shot of nitrous oxide on hand for good measure.

In one of the earlier images you may have noticed that the driver’s side rear wheel and tire combo is not the same as the others, and this was to show that the car is being set up for dual street and drag use – hence all the horsepower.


The engine exhales through a custom exhaust system that borrows styling cues from the Lexus LFA, while the the headlights were taken from an NSX. I’m actually amazed at how well they fit the A70, to be honest. The owner also created the rear LED taillights and rear spoiler to complete the Supra’s eccentric styling.

This wasn’t the sort of Supra I expected to stumble across at TAS 2020 – look out for our A90 post coming soon for a whole bunch of those – but you have to expect the unexpected at this event, and the T-Get Works Supra was exactly that.

Well done, but it's missing a headlight or taillight conversion from that era, haha.

NICE. finally an A70 in the spotlight. not my style, but it's nice to see one so heavily customized but also clearly well-built. what a wild and fun machine.


Personally, I think this wedgy car goes better with the original dashboard. I am pretty much fine with the overall car. Thanks SH!


Interesting car. I'm not a fan of glow lights didn't like it much in the 90s when they were on everything. Love the converted dash and the engine swap though. Would be a good cruiser. Not sure why its got drag tires but to each their own.


Its got dual purpose for street and drag.. read again...


when did bow-wow get a mk3 supra?


but I do like it.


Ignore the rude people Mr Celestine, this is good work! Excellent photography, interesting story and a great car. Thanks!
Also interesting that they named a hotel in Ginza after you...


Yess this may not for everyone taste.. but at least we can appreciate the effort made by the owner and the journalist to bring it here..


Yes!!!!! This is great. Mark 3 Supra for the win!!!!!!!! I would love to see more cars like this.


Ron - what year did I just wake up in? ha


Hey Ron! Please share a full pic of the rear of the car if you have one ; )

Supra Bro #2 - But guy man, how can they be intelligent without the 2JZ, yo?

Supra Bro #1 - Guy man, very true yo!


I hate to be ‘that guy,’ but this seems like half an article, where are more pictures and story?
This green monster looks fascinating.


Love that this car exists, and that someone had the balls to build it out. Not my personal preference, but the world is a little more colorful and fun with this crazy supra out there.


This is NFS Underground 2 in real life! (Thumbs up)


I'm with those who say it's not quite their style, but wonderful anyway. Underneath all that bling there appears to be some well-executed retromodding. I'm a stickler for hose clamps too...but it's not like they're rusty. Besides, it's one thing to conceptualize a custom widebody like this, and quite another to make it all happen with any sort of visual cohesion. I'm hoping we eventually see it rolling hard on the highway, spitting flames out of those triple pipes!


Man, that cockpit is crazy! More of an art piece than a car build. Nice article!
