A Viper GTS can be had for around $80K, that could definitly burn a Supra. If in Japan, a Skyline R34 would definitly be a contender, I'm not sure about the exact price though, it's not a whole lot more than a Supra.
Stock in America? I know those get up there in price for the imported version that'll soon be here, but I coulda swore that they were a little cheaper than that when you converted from yen->us$, but maybe not *shrug*
With the Supra turbo, you can easily get 500-600hp to the wheels... that thing is sooo under-rated... with very little modifying you can get that kind of power with stock reliablility.... If you get a used one and modified, you can easily beat a Viper for the same price...
I believe this is the order in which the cars finished a track labelled Ashi-no-ko Skyline. I forgot, but it was a big thing when the Skyline came out, because it shattered the previous record set by an Acura NSX..and well the Porsche 959 is a faster car, so I expect better times
How about 510HP in a MKII MR2? That oughta be an uncontrollably duo! But I bet it'd kick some mondo ass, being so light and all. Sorta why we see all those CRXs on the dragstrips.
Wah...all I want is a 1990 VW Corrado G60 w/ Neuspeed's HP KIT III and Neuspeed cams, Neuspeed short shift, new headers, 17" TSW Hockenheims, and Eibach Lowering Kit. Everything else stock...make the car look nicer, but not speeding ticket friendly...that's all I want. Unfortunately I spend too much money on this computer, and I have to spend more money to get my current car to sellable condition. Help me out here
I agree with BCYL....The Supra is way way WAY under rated. People think I over rate it but I don't think so. Look at this way it's been gone for about 5 years here in America and were still putting it up to the new cars and comparing. It's a kick ass car that car beat most cars on a drag and other race. I want them to do something and make Supras again in America. My friend wanted to modify his MR2 but had no cash so it remains stock for a while.
