What is it?

Born in 1986, the Toyota Supra MK3 was the first Supra developed as an autonomous project, therefore not derived from the Toyota Celica. As proof of this, since 1986 this car is no longer called “Celica Supra”, but simply “Supra”. The production of the MK3 ended in 1992 when the MK4 was introduced, one of the most iconic and desired JDMs ever.

The Supra MK3 distinguished itself from its predecessor for its simpler aesthetic lines, from which a well-proportioned and slender-looking body was formed. The front headlights are long and thin, while a generously sized fixed spoiler is visible in the rear.

Combined with an unprecedented front-wheel drive, the first engine made available for the Supra MK3 was a 230HP 3.0 Turbo.


A few months after the release of the first MK3, a “GT Limited” version with an engine boosted to 240HP also debuted. Subsequently, less powerful (and less famous) versions were introduced: a 105HP 2.0 SOHC, a 145HP 2.0 DHOC and a 180HP 2.0 BiTurbo. Along with these engines, another important innovation in 1987 was the debut of ABS, TEMS (Toyota Electronically Modulated Suspension) and ACIS (Acoustic Controlled Induction System) technologies. The following year, a new Supra with a 3.0 Turbo engine debuted, this time upgraded to 270HP. In Japan, in 1992 a 280HP 2.5 BiTurbo was also marketed for a short time.
