so i’m still obsessed…

…after all these years, with Supras and Top Secret. I posted a look back about the TS R33 last week, and I just had to toss this one on here. I mean, who could forget about this??

Top Secret’s GT300 inspired JZA80 had an unheard of for a street car 3sgte swap…

…which some claimed blasphemy, while others saw the benefit it gained from experiences in GT300. This setup allowed the motor to be pushed far back against the firewall, and the radiator flat in the bay.

Top Secret used this car for several high speed runs, most notably the 300km/h in New Zealand.

I don’t recall where these pics were from, but I think it was from Super Street.

Here some info on this legend.

    You could, but it’ll be stock for a looong time. Mods for them are just so damned expensive. Hell, even buying one is a lot to begin with.
