This Manual, Twin-Turbo MkIV Toyota Supra Is A $130,000 Dream

We all know how rare twin-turbo, manual-shifting Toyota Supras are, especially from the prettier A80 generation, and prices are now in dream territory
This Manual, Twin-Turbo MkIV Toyota Supra Is A $130,000 Dream

We know some of you might keep a beady eye on the prices of late-model MkIV Toyota Supras, especially manual and turbocharged ones, and wow, do we have some bad news for you.

CT user Jia the Supra Fanboy (because of course it was) pointed this one out to us. A 2002 car from the final months of the A80’s production life, it’s a right-hand drive import to Canada from Japan. It’s manual, there’s a twin-turbo 3.0-litre 2JZ-GTE under the bonnet and it’s completely standard. Commence heavy breathing.

It’s not quite at mythical unicorn status because of the 32,000km (20,000 miles) it’s covered, but that’s hardly a lot, is it? And anyway, with that kind of mileage, the value won’t drop through the floor if you actually drive it occasionally. That’s a big tick for us.

For sale with Rennsport Automobile in Vancouver, British Columbia – a lovely city that’s well worth a visit even if you’re not buying a Supra – the one thing that bugs us is the inexcusable lack of detail in the listing. The images are low-quality and tiny, too.

Surely, when a vehicle this collectible and this rare finds its way to your showroom, you should be preparing a comprehensive advert so that someone could feel confident putting a deposit down over the phone even before seeing it. The other Matt has had a moan about it before.

We love the totally out-of-place retro cloth upholstery, though. The pattern looks like it’s been lifted from an early 1990s Peugeot 106 special edition; wonderful in its awfulness.

Anyway, that bad news we were talking about: this is for sale for 129,900 Canadian dollars (£75,000). The dream keeps slipping further away…

Hat tip to Jia!

Just to be clear, the double-meaning in the headline was deliberate! You and me both, on the Matchbox front…

Even if I had the money, thanks but no. Prices are becoming total nonsense.

I’d rather have a modern GT-R, a Lotus, or a Ferrari 355 for that price. I even found a 997 GT3 RS at 150.000€ (131.273£) with 15700 kilometers (9756 miles),

I have to agree with you. If I was a multi-billionaire car collector, then I’d go ahead and fork out the 130K this Supra has been listed for. But, as your average Joe, if I was given 130K to spend on a car - it wouldn’t be this Supra. I reckon I’d have a much easier time day-to-day with the more practical GTR or much more fun in a used 911 or a brand new 918.

We live in times when it’s cheaper to build a 1500hp lambo than buy a supra…

The best thing to do if you’re looking for a supra turbo is to buy an automatic non turbo one and just swap the GTE in, its a hell of a lot more work but its way cheaper in the long run and most people will be taking the engine out to modify it anyway

Even those are going for at least for 20000 dollars.

Better yet just swap a manual into it and dont put in the gte and strap a turbo on the stock engine

130k for 32k’s?! How delusional are they?

This one, a ‘94, did get $80k USD and it only has 5,6k miles: yes it’s an auto, but it doesn’t explain a $50k difference in price, especially when it has 3 times more mileage.

2002 Supra was never made overseas, and the V161 transmission is ridiculously rare and coveted.

Also, the stock ‘96+ Supras had much nicer alloy wheels and a decent steering wheel unlike the earlier cars.

Probably doesn’t justify the 27k CAD price hike found here, but who knows. For older cars like this, value can only really be judged when it’s sold lol, so we’ll see.

If you sell your vital organs on the black market you could afford a 918 spider
