There are high-power 1JZ and 2JZ cars situated all over the world, but it’s not often that we find a 1000hp-plus 7M-GTE engine–powered Supra.

Plagued with head gasket failures, the 7M-GTE never really took off here in New Zealand, and nor did the MkIII Toyota Supra. However, extreme Toyota purists the world over have built countless examples capable of 745kW (1000hp) plus. These people include Duane, with his 770kW (1035hp) example. Force-fed 32psi by a GT4202R with a 1.15 turbine housing, this MkIII Supra has no problems producing crazy numbers on both pump and race gas.

Anyway, enough of us ruining the show. Turn up the volume and enjoy one of the best sounding six-cylinders we’ve heard in a long time:

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
