WHY IT’S RAD!
The 4th generation (MKIV) Supra introduced for the 1993 model year is legendary for it's incredibly stout iron blocked, DOHC, inline 6 , 3-liter powerplant. 800+ "reliable" horsepower from the stock longblock is pretty commonplace, however these cars are more than just straightline missiles. These Supra's also boast tremendous stopping power and held the world record for a production car with a stopping distance from 70-0 of 149ft. It took 12 years for it to be dethroned (by the Porsche Carrera GT). Then there's the cornering grip. Period publications consistently recorded skidpad figures of 0.95G. This is with early 90's tire tech, making this one RAD driver's machine.
The JDM version offered here is a 1993, top-of-the-line, "GZ model" which was fully loaded with the twin-turbo 3-liter engine (2JZ-GTE), leather,Torsen limited slip differential, active front aero spoiler, "Aero Top" (aka targa top), and automatic transmission. There were a total of 352 Supra GZ's made and were only available for the 1993 and 1994 model years.
The vehicle is said to have been owned by a single family since it was purchased new in Toyohashi, Japan. The selling dealer acquired the car from an auction, as the first owner outside of this family. Since purchased, the vehicle is said to have been garage kept, being driven and "serviced sporadically."
The seller states the vehicle is in good running condition with no apparent oil or fluid leaks. The engine is said to start up and idle smoothly, with the transmission engaging into gears "with ease." Shifts are reported to be smooth. The O/D lamp, as well as the Airbag lamp, are both on.
The only known modifications to the vehicle are a period (analog) TV installed next to the center console and a remote starter with turbo timer. The factory manual and wireless fob are included for the remote starter/turbo timer.
Happy bidding on this icon worthy of the RADwood Royalty moniker.
