Customer Car Gallery: A 700bhp Supra (soon to be 1000+bph)
Now, this Customer Car Gallery article is one you avid Supra fans will not want to stop reading… Jason (one of our customers) owns a Toyota Supra, and as you’ve probably guessed, it’s not a standard Supra. Jason owns a Toyota Supra Single Turbo Aerotop, which currently runs at 700bhp.
To say this Supra is his pride and joy would be an understatement. Such a large amount of time and effort has gone into modifying this car. It’s recently had a variety of additional modifications added to it and there are also plans for further modification work to be done in the not so distant future.

We asked Jason, the owner of this incredible machine, a few questions regarding his car, his passion for cars, and how he’s managed to transform it from a stock (non-turbo) Aerotop to the fascinating piece of engineering we see today…
When did you first discover your interest in cars?
As a child I always liked cars. After helping build a track worthy Mini when I was 12 years old, I became hooked. Once the first ‘Fast and Furious’ film came out, my passion for Japanese sports cars grew to new heights. Ever since that point, my dream car had always been a high powered Aerotop Toyota Supra.
What was your first car?
A Modified XR2.
If the power of your Supra has increased from when you first bought it to now, please detail how:
I have had many engine upgrades. When I first bought the car it did not have a turbo and was only 220bhp. Then, I did a twin turbo transplant which took the power close to 300bhp. I then did a BPU setup, taking the power to around 450bhp. After this, I pushed the twin turbos, so changed to a Holset single setup 550bhp. After the Holset died I got the Garret T88 single turbo (which is my current setup) and now the car runs at 700bhp.
Has your car been featured in any magazines / online forums?
I have not featured my car anywhere as yet – I have not finished everything I wish to do. However, this year it will be in certain magazines. My plans for another engine build will also follow in another edition.
Will you be attending any car shows with your car this year?
I will be attending a lot of Jap Shows the year, in addition to mod shows.
Are there any plans to add more modifications to the car?
Yes, I’d like a carbon roof, and the doors and boot will be on the list of weight reduction. I am also already building a 1000 bhp+ engine to drop in once it is done. This is currently on hold as my house project is going to take up most of my free time (and money).
