700hp Supra Mk4 v BMW M3: DRAG RACE

Thanks to Jodie for joining us for this race: @KiddinaSweetShop

Thanks to everyone for providing us their vehicles:
– Mk4 :

How's this for a RWD drag race?!

We have actually got Mat lining up in a traditional Mk4 , and he's facing off versus Jodie Kidd in a G80 !

Think this one will be a walkover for the ? Well, guess again! You see, although the Supra still has the very same 2JZ 3-litre engine under the bonnet as when it was launched in 1997, it's had a little work done to it. It's switched 2 turbos for one much larger one, and as a result this JDM timeless now pumps out 708hp and 709Nm! What's more, it's likewise fitted with a brand-new gearbox – the very same 8-speed auto gearbox as found in the G80 M3!

In contrast, the G80 features a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet, but it can 'only' put down 510hp and 650Nm! Sure it may be much more recent and come with launch control, but it's also heavier than the Supra, tipping the scales at 1,730 kg. In contrast, the Supra weighs in at 1,490 kg.

So what do you believe – is the Supra going to smash it ?! Or is it not going to have the ability to handle that much power through its rear wheels? There's just one method to discover for sure … LET'S RACE!

    I love this trend of modernizing the transmission of older cars with something new. I hope this gets more popular, a LOT of older vehicles would be completely different vehicles going from a 4spd auto to something like a 6-8spd.

      @elazotacunaos4752ย  It doesn’t need anything.. but if any a manual would be nicer. Now you’re just flooring the pedal and waiting for the car to do it’s magic.. where’s the fun in that?

      @Thunderbug if you can have a manual GTR, then you won’t want any auto ever

      @Sai by GTR do you mean my R33 GTR or a R35 GTR? Because if its the former i do have one and im changing to a DCT lol.

      @Tropical Storm no reason to be so literal when people can just Google it, I also made the statement Aisin being a partner group within Toyota in another comment.

      Tropical Storm

      @2URLex The only reason I said my comment was because you said the transmission was co-developed by Lexus in-house. Aisin made the transmission according to Lexus requirements, just like when Michelin and other tire makers collaborate with car manufacturers to develop new tires. It’s done according to car manufacturers’s specifications.

      It’s a mph conversion very clearly, doesn’t take 4 gears to hit 100kph or 60mph ๐Ÿ˜‚

      The speedo is only 180km/h because it was limited in Japan. Anywhere else it was limited to 250. Sure the scale is mph now. If a stock Supra can do 250km/h, why would a tuned 700hp Supra not hit 280km/h (around 175mph)?

      @Ouss Ama Not a single person I know would ever pick an M3 over a Supra. And I’m talking just looks alone. As for power, as if you are going to be driving at those speeds in the cities to begin with.

    The BMW transmission mod for the supra is great. It helps the car stay in boost that is generally lost during manual gear shifts. We need more of these mods.

      @DriverJ nah, manual will always be more fun to drive, but when you’re going for straightline speed, a modern auto is the way to go.

    I couldn’t believe how well and responsive the Supra gearbox was, I was thinking it would be more “rough” or sketchy, I’ve seen some automatic conversion that worked sort of well but this one is quick and smooth! Great job ๐Ÿ˜€ !

      @Follow The Bass Fine if japanese manufacturers make their engines tolerate that however my point is that if you treat the bmw engine well it will last a very long time. Most of the issues with cars are caused by the owners and not the manufacturer.

      I think the title had “CS” in it then it got fixed.
      That explains why it was doing slightly better in roll races. RWD is better than AWD from a roll

      Likely more about gearing and modern engine tuning (longer flatter torque curves) than underrating hp.

      the m3 would blitz it so bad i mean the 600hp m3 was competing with the 911 turbo s which is a supercar destroyer. and the stock bmw was about to beat the supra

      @A.g Rtmate u understood that question wrong lmao he meant he would like to see this supra vs the 600hp m3 theyโ€™ve featured before

    3. Yueliang Avatar

      @A.g Rt im talking about the tuned m3.

    4. Rawrrr Avatar

      @Ayan Rahman Well, yea. This 700HP Supra has just 1 turbo. So, it has large gaps in it’s powerband. Find a Twin turbo 700HP Supra with similar gearing & traction and watch it gap this Supra in a drag. 600HP M3 has a much more lineair powerband due to twin turbo’s & amazing fine-tuned tuning WITH 4WD, so it has a stronger power delivery which is why it’s so dam fast.

      Let’s imagine a SUPRA with a manual transmission and 600 HP and driven by the owner?
