New Toyota GR86 v Mk4 Supra: DRAG RACE

How s this for a RWD drag race!

We ve got our hands on an all-new and it s going head-to-head versus a Mk4 Supra!

So let s see how the 2 compare. Beginning with the , it s powered by a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder that can produce 234hp and 260Nm of torque. It s equipped with a manual transmission which drives the rear wheels only, and it tips the scales at 1,274 kg.

In terms of the Supra, it s geared up with a 3-litre turbo 6L that can produce 326hp and 434Nm. It s heavier than the GR86, at 1,490 kg, and it s also geared up with a manual transmission that drives the rear wheels.

So on paper, you might think it ll be a clear win for the Supra. However will it be able to launch well in these slippery conditions? There s just one way to find out LET S RACE!

      Warchild, refugee and legal immigrant here. kina virus released to fk up the elections…millions dead, billion+ with heart/organ issues…evil know no bounds, 100% intentionally released…just to get one man out of office, one man they could not buy/control. I have seen what communism will do to stay in or get in power. Anything! Chinese killed 30+ million of their own for power less than a century ago. It was a crazy conspiracy theory that FBI smoked Kennedy and now we know it is true. It was a conspiracy theory that kina virus was manmade but now we know it is true. MSM/Big Tech working overtime to censor/ban. This was intentionally released to fk up US election and for the Chinese to get protesters of Hong Kong streets because if Hong Kong goes so do commies in China. Win-win for commies and US dems….millions dead, billion+ with heart/organ issues. Godless people will always create hell.

      @Cars with Adam Davis I’m not a fan of the show to be honest. I find the hosts a bit boring. Maybe I’m just more accustomed to Top Gear banter and I resonate more with Carwow because of it.

      GR86 Is one of the best designed sports coupes I’ve ever seen. I had to see it in person to say, _”Oh wow…OH wow!”_ And car manufacturers said no one would buy 2dr 6 spd manual cars anymore. Rubbish. πŸ˜πŸ˜„

      There are a few races with Ben around on this channel which clearly shows that drag-races and gear-shifts are not the strong point of an elderly Stig.

    The GR86 winning those races…with less horsepower shows how much technology has advanced since the 90s

    1. Paul Tasker Avatar
      Paul Tasker

      I think the main improvement is down to traction in the wet. The GR86 is just simply able to put it’s power down better. Once out of first the power of the Supra shows. Although I don’t think it’s quite making what it should

      ​@Ross Ibedehemthe problem was it was wet and the stability control isn’t very sophisticated

      @100% COK because the 86 is so much lighter. 100 hp seems irrelevant.

      Yeah my guess is that the GR86 has been underrated (as shown by many dyno tests) and the Supra has lost some power over time

    Great vid and all once more but I got a suggestion for the future: I would like the countdown to change or be made more clear for guests.. You see Ben is reacting to the drop of the hands while Matt is just timing his launch to the 1,2,3 (sometimes quite a bit earlier too 🀫). I think it should be reactive like in F1. The lights don’t go out at a predetermined time.

    About 20 years ago my dad got a 1990 supra 3L twin turbo. I loved it as a kid. Any car that overtook my dad while he was just cruising I would say you can’t let them do that and he would… go back past them at an appropriate and safe speed πŸ˜‰πŸ€£

      Reading that made me chuckle. What an enabler. πŸ˜„

      I had two turbos back in ’04. One was a stock ’87 with HKS intake and downpipe and an A’PEXi exhaust (can’t remember the model). It was slow even with the wastegate washer mod but sounded really nice.

      The other was a built ’88 with a 60-1 turbo, forged internals, A’PEXi S-AFC/VPC combo and A’PEXi GT SPEC exhaust. It put out 530 WHP at 26 PSI and sounded very throaty.

      I’ll always have a void for the sound of the 7M-GTE and always miss those cars. Having the roof off felt so nice, too.

    I remember turbo MKIV supras being low to mid 13 second cars stock. I get the conditions are not ideal here, but this poor thing has to be so down on power. Caranddriver has it @ 13.1 (with their very generous rollout lol). I demand a rematch for us old guys!
