Super Supra

Lego Toyota Supra

The Toyota Supra is a legend. Specifically this one, the fourth (and final – for now) generation produced from the mid-’90s to the early-’00s, and available with a twin-turbo straight-six that could annihilate Porsches, BMWs, and well… just about anything else at the time.

Thanks to a certain Vin Diesel / Paul Walker movie franchise the Supra’s reputation has exploded in recent years, yet despite that until now we’ve never featured a fourth generation Supra here at TLCB (although earlier more humble variants have appeared).

Today, with a fifth generation Supra finally nearing production after a seventeen year absence (although sadly with probably no more power than its predecessor), we finally right that wrong, courtesy of Sam the First aka Sir.Manperson of Flickr and this wonderful Model Team recreation of one of Japan’s finest GT cars.

Originally built digitally (hence why it didn’t appear here), Sam has now built his Supra for real, and it looks stunning. With a near perfectly recreated exterior, detailed engine, fully appointed interior, plus opening doors, hood, and tailgate, Sam’s Supra is a testament to hours upon hours of digital designing.

A huge image gallery detailing Sam’s Toyota Supra is available to view at his Flickr photostream – head over there via the link above, make some ‘Pfffft, bwububusssh’ noises, and pretend it’s the late ’90s again…
