Toyota Supra Mk4 celebrates 20 years

This past Sunday nearly 100 Supras met to mark the car’s 20th anniversary at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon. The event was hosted by Toyota Supra Owners Club and supported by Toyota GB.

The line-up ranged from cars in original UK specification to highly modified machines.

Supra’s UK history began in 1982 with the arrival of the Celica Supra and the final model Supra, the Mk IV, was launched in the UK in 1993 after a world debut at the Chicago Motor Show.

The entry level model used naturally-aspirated 220bhp 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder, while the top of the range model produced 326bhp from a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

The turbo model is still a popular car among tuners, who have tweaked the engine to more than 1,000bhp.

The Supra was not popular enough to keep it on the market and was dropped in 1996. In Japan it was available until 2002, when it was discontinued due to new emission standards.
