Japanese Tuner Builds 500 hp Widebody GR Supra

500 hp widebody Supra will decimate all

  • 493 hp, mountains of torque for inline-six

  • Limited to just 20 built


The big power, big styling fifth-generation Toyota GR Supra we’ve been hoping for since the model was first introduced is now here. And while you might not recognize the builder, you’ve probably heard of their work before.

It’s called the Sard Supra, named for Sigma Advanced Racing Development, the Japanese tuner that built it. The company started back in 1972 making motorsports parts and running their own cars including becoming the first Japanese car to qualify for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. These days, they make fast Toyotas, including entries in Super GT racing.

This one turns the 3.0L turbocharged straight-six up from 382 hp to a much more impressive 493, along with 505 lb-ft of torque. Massive upgrades for the motor thanks to a new BorgWarner turbocharger with billet compressor wheel, a gorgeous titanium exhaust system, a new catalytic converter, and an ECU remap to let it all work together.

Reigning in that performance, this Supra has a stiffened chassis featuring extensive extra bracing as well as new anti-roll bars, adjustable suspension, and beefier brakes under the 20-inch wheels with the blue wheels and brakes matching the suspension components.

The thick widebody kit pushes the car’s fenders out by 80 mm in total, while the front air inlets have been expanded and there are plenty of new vents to keep things cool. At the rear are larger twin-exhaust tips and a more aggressive rear outlet and diffuser.

SARD is building just 20 of these, priced from 12,500,000 yen. That’s about $156,000, making it a whole lot pricier than a standard Supra. Then again, it’s a lot quicker and more exclusive. Is this the 10-second car you’re owed?
