Toyota GR Supra (2021) a body kit from Wald

Japanese tuner Wald International has taken on the new Toyota GR Supra with an aggressive Formula 1-inspired body kit.

To distinguish it from the wiser BMW Z4 from which it borrows many elements, the new fifth-generation Toyota GR Supra has a specific design, with muscular and assertive lines.

But if the style of the new Toyota coupe was not aggressive enough for your tastes.

The Japanese tuner Wald International has come up with something to say loud and clear that your Supra is not just a “vulgar rebadged Z4”.

Toyota GR Supra (2021): a kit inspired by Formula 1

According to the Wald website, this “Sports Line Wide Version” body kit gives the Supra a “Formula 1 appearance.” The most striking feature is the front bumper.

The standard GR Supra’s nose inspired the design to make it more prominent and aggressive. A wide mouth and large air intakes complete the set, along with a black blade at its bottom.

At the rear, we find fender extensions, a new black diffuser with a distinctive quadruple tailpipe, as well as an imposing double spoiler, bringing an actual race car look to the Supra.

New matching sill extensions for sidewalls and several more aggressive rim models are also available.

Wald offers a “Sports Line” option for Supra enthusiasts who don’t want to go all “Fast and Furious” with this kit. It includes front, rear, and side spoilers, as well as a more discrete spoiler.

The Toyota AE86 is the ancestor of the GT86, a small, sporty and affordable coupe. Usually, under the hood, there are 4 cylinders, but here La Nippone has a much larger V8 that is a bit special.

Toyota loves to produce small cars for fun! Sports vehicles have been of interest to the Japanese manufacturer for a long time. Just look at the brand’s current range to realize it: between the Supra , Yaris GR and the new GR86 , there is something to be convinced . And this love story goes back a long time! Before the GR and GT 86, there was the AE86 produced between 1984 and 1987.

Nascar V8!

Originally, no V8 has ever found a place under the hood of these sports cars. Fortunately for us, a small English preparer decided to right this injustice in the most beautiful way by installing a Nascar V8 under the hood of an AE86! The result is simply monstrous!

700 hp at the rear wheels

First, there is this orange color that does not go unnoticed. Then, how not to notice the ultra-wide fenders that house huge rims? But the centerpiece is obviously under the hood: a 7.4-liter V8 straight from a Nascar and developing a whopping 700 hp! The sets of tires do not resist him for long , and what a sound!
