Legendary Gran Turismo TOM's Racing Toyota Supra Up For Auction

Calling all the gaming kids of the 1990s, do you remember the Castrol-liveried TOM’s Racing Toyota Supra in the PlayStation2 classic that is Gran Turismo 2? Good news! Now you can buy almost the real thing because Toyota, an official partner to Red Nose Day (charity event), has put up a fully kitted and liveried to match Toyota Supra as that found in the video game up for auction.

Handling the auction is the dealer website Pistonheads who were lucky enough to be part of this piece of motoring history.

The Toyota Supra you see before you is a 1996 version but modified with performance components. Its heart, a 3.0-litre in-line six engine now produces 370 hp, sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.

The wheels are 5x19 Ace 130 alloys wrapped in 235/35x19 tyres. A Veilside bodykit is also installed, including the huge boot spoiler and lowered suspension with Eibach dampers to go with it. Inside, the matching full-leather interior also features a Kenwood audio system that sends its signal to Memphis speakers via a 2,000W class D amplifier.

Wrapping things up is the genuine full Castrol racing livery to make this as close of a replica to the famous Gran Turismo game car.

Unfortunately, the auction ends on 13 March 2015 (UK time) where all proceeds will go to Comic Relief’s projects that help the people in the UK and in Africa.

The nostalgia...

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
