The Toyota Supra (Japanese: トヨタ・スープラ, Hepburn: Toyota Sūpura) is a sports car and grand tourer manufactured by the Toyota Motor Corporation beginning in 1978. The name «supra» is derived from the Latin prefix, meaning «above», «to surpass» or «go beyond».
The Supra also traces much of its roots back to the 2000GT owing to an inline-6 layout. The first three generations were offered with a direct descendant to the Crown’s and 2000GT’s M engine. Interior aspects were also similar, as was the chassis code «A».
In mid 1981, Toyota completely redesigned the Celica Supra as well as the entire Celica lineup for the 1982 model year. In Japan, they were known as the Celica XX, but the Celica Supra name was used for the world market. Still based on the Celica platform, there were several key differences, most notably the design of the front end and fully retractable pop-up headlights. Other differences were the inline-six rather than four-cylinder engine, as well as an increase in length and wheelbase to accommodate the larger engine. Cars installed with the 5M engine were slightly wider, while other models remained compliant with Japanese dimension regulations.
Changes for the 1984 model year were significant. Power output was increased on the 5-speed models to 160 hp and 221 Nm of torque. The most notable exterior changes included the switch to wraparound front turn signals, the option of either a rear wing spoiler mounted high up on the rear hatch, or rear window and quarter window louvers. Also, the tail-lights were redesigned and the hatch received a billboard «Supra» sticker instead of the smaller sticker, which was previously positioned on the right. The rear hatch and bumper was changed and received the same colour as the rest of the car.
Some interior controls such as the steering wheel, cruise control, and door lock switch were redesigned. Toyota included a 130 mph (209 km/h) speedometer in North American models instead of the traditional 85 mph (140 km/h) speedometer and the automatic climate control display was also changed. The previous year’s cassette and equalizer stereo option was now made a standard feature.
Our Toyota Celica Supra P-Type is a great example. Inside you will find an original interior that is in amazing condition. The bodywork reflects the quality of this car as well. The previous owner has made sure that the bodywork is in great condition and has documented it all. The wheels have also been refurbished to original specification. What makes this car special is the fact that it has a fully functioning digital dashboard and a manual gearbox. Not many Celica Supras were fitted with this digital dashboard.
This Celica Supra is one rare and stunning car to own. With its great 6-inline engine and stunning 80’s looks, every journey will be one to remember.
