    Here at Rotashop we love a Supra as much the next petrol filled Guy, but there is something about one thats been tuned, bodied up and running a BIG Wing, The Rota GTR-D's deffinitley just top it off for us, running a staggered set up the extra width on the back will be helping put and keep the pwer down. the stying is just about perfect for us. More Details to follow below.

    What got you into cars?

    The group of friends I had was always into cars so naturally the interest came from there.

    With such a huge spec, it will be hard to pin it down but what is Your favourite thing about it?

    The widearch, having the widearch and therefore wider wheels (18×12 Rota GTR-D’s on the rear with 315/30/18 Toyo R888 tyres) made a huge difference in putting the power down on a nice dry road surface.

    Whats next? I.e new car or more power etc.

    To stick with this car but to get the most I can out of it, I’ve had quite a few targets along the way and when I’ve hit them all I have further extended my targets, this will continue so

    will see a few differences in styling but also will see good performance gains.

    how did the wheel fitting go? did it need the body kit? arch rolling?

    Wheel fitting was great and the offsets used fit the car perfectly, especially as I am widearched so was important to find the right size and offset to obtain the maximum size of wheel I could fit within the arches.

    Anything else you wish to add?

    This has been my biggest project to date and am very proud of what I have come up with, I don’t have an exact power figure for what its running now but it was running 690.8bhp at 2.0 bar of boost and now its running 2.3 bar boost so will be nicely into the 700’s.

    The look I am very pleased with and the Rota GTR’D’s really set it off nicely.
