This will be the last Customer Car Gallery post of 2015 and oh my, we have saved you an absolutely astonishing car to see out 2015. This time we would like to introduce you to Paul and his Toyota Supra. The Supra is insured via one of our modified car insurance schemes, here at Sky Insurance.

Paul bought the car as stock with 326bhp. The car is now heavily modified and running at an incredible 749bhp.

We put some questions to Paul about his passion for cars and just how much work has gone into this beautiful Toyota Supra. So much time, effort and care has gone into this car. As you read on, you’ll find out just how much…

Please can you tell us a little bit about yourself and when you first discovered your interest in cars?

I found my interest in cars when I was about 15 years old, from reading articles on the internet, buying magazines and watching DVD’s. As soon as I turned 17, I had driving lessons and passed in the first year. Then, I was ready to start putting all I have watched and learnt into practice on my own cars.

What modifications has the car undergone?

We have had to list just a few of the overall modifications the car has undergone. The list is literally just a snapshot of the upgrades. In reality, we wouldn’t have been able to fit all the modifications in this post, there are so many of them!

How has your car transformed from when you bought it?

I bought the car when it was in Japan. It was totally stock and black. The car was imported by Jurgan at JM imports. As soon as it landed in the docks, I requested lots of work to be done on it before I even picked it up.

Do you attend any car shows with your car? Are you planning to attend any in 2016?

Yes, I hope to attend Japfest again and general meets – my car can be on any stands, upon request from people that contact me via Facebook.

Do you plan to add further modifications to the car?

Only a few bits left to do; Twin fan radiator kit, Whifbitz pulley set and Whifbitz carbon fibre cam belt cover set.
