TOM’S is a single of Toyota’s official tuning outlets. With official backing from Japan’s biggest automaker, they recently created a tribute to a single of Hollywood’s biggest vehicle fanatics, the late Paul Walker. So how did TOM’S go about it? By jazzing up three white A90 GR Supras while collaborating with Japanese way of living magazine Safari.
But what’s the backlink amongst the white Supra and Paul Walker? On the area, it appears to be like TOM’S is basically using the late actor’s title to show off what they did to the contemporary Supra. However, there is a a lot deeper relationship than you feel.
Do you don’t forget the white A80 Toyota Supra seen in Furious seven? That was basically Walker’s personal vehicle showcased in the movie. With that recognized, you can see why TOM’S did the mods utilized to the reborn Supra and did their finest to match the a single owned by Walker.
As far as system kits go, TOM’S gave the A90 Supra tribute vehicle a subtle and intense appear. There is a somewhat restrained lip at the front and a tall rear spoiler that is a nod to the A80 era. The ride top is a bit decreased in contrast to inventory thanks to a established of KW coilovers. Like Walker’s personal Supra, the TOM’S tribute has BBS LM wheels. There are no pictures of the cabin, but Safari states it has a comprehensive leather inside, alongside with carbon fiber inserts on the sprint and doorways.
But the TOM’S tribute is not just a Supra with a subtle package. TOM’S also gave it what a bit more pep under the hood. Thanks to the TOM’S Energy Box, electricity rises from 382 horsepower (285 kilowatts) to 420 horsepower (313 kilowatts). That easy box tune gave the Supra a balanced increase of 38 horsepower (28 kilowatts).
TOM’S will only build three of these Paul Walker tribute GR Supras. Each individual of these have a price tag of 12.97 million Yen, which is $116,757 at present-day exchange premiums. Which is more than double the conventional Supra 3.0’s MSRP of $fifty four,690. However, it is a great deal much less than the Supra from the first The Quickly and the Furious motion picture that bought for $185,000 back again in 2015.
According to the magazine, if there are a lot of apps, the potential buyers will be selected by using lottery technique. Given the body weight of Walker’s impact close to the vehicle circles, that might just occur.
