Big power or cheaper style

  1. 1. Big power or cheaper style

    • UK Supra TT (326BHP)
    • Import Supra NA Aerotop (225BHP)

Recommended Posts

I've decided i want a Red Supra and i also want the Automatic Gearbox.

Im thinking right now that im either going to go for a UK Supra TT in Red with the Auto box and cream leather interior but UK cars are few and far between and especially more so with the cream interior.

Tomorrow im going to have a look at a Red Imported na Aerotop. Apologies to me slagging off the NA supra in the past. I've seen the error of my ways :lol:

The reason for this is id love the removable roof but im not going to get a UK car with this.

The Import Turbo Aero's are quite pricing and im not too keen on a 280bhp twin turbo when i could have the more powerful UK car.

So its either the most powerful Supra weighing in at 326bhp but may take time to get. Or its going to be style and cheaper insurance and the import Aerotop.

Im not rushing into it anyhow as this is going to be a car to last me a very long time.

ignore the TT UK/import power thing.. although the UK initially has slightly more power (i believe when driving the extra bhp isnt even noticeable) , in reality the import is far easier to tune, get parts for blah blah..

I was gonna say that it'd be cheaper to insure the uk supra than an import but you found out for yourself. Now youve just got tot find one of the 600 odd that were officially sold in the uk. And like Adi says, the power difference is minimal, with the jap spec turbo's spooling quicker the really is no noticeable difference in the real world.

I hope you dont mind waiting lol

I know we all set our minds on our ideal cars but only having the option of white or red (with white being one of the rarer IIRC) i think you'll be in for a hard long search.

They do it on the Mk4 turbo too :) (remember that horrible orange thing on fast and the furious?)

Craig Lebermans car aha yes, but that was built before the movie.....and is not a factory car !

Yeah thanks guys but i already knew about the turbo aerotop.

This all began because i thought a N/A supra would be cheaper than a turbo, and if that was the case i may as well get an aerotop.

But after looking into it im going for a UK Turbo because they are cheaper to insure, higher spec, more bhp and more exclusive than the imports.

And most of all you can get it serviced at any toyota dealer :lol:

Its just getting hold of a good one. I want a standard or almost standard one and thats getting tough.

Especially seeing as im very picky and want a low mileage one with the cream leather interior.

Looks like im gonna have a long wait ahead :(

Yeah but you have to deal with the stoooopid horns that UK cars have ;) If you're keeping it totally standard then I can see your point, jspec cars are easier to tune though if you were planning on going for extra BHP.

Apparently they don't like insuring NA's as they're a "rarer" car so more expensive to fix if you crash it, I found that most companies I rang didn't care whether it was an import or not.

Besides, think about it...toyota are jap cars so therfore Uk spec supes are "imposter" supras... the jspecs are the real deal :P

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
