A rare gathering of nearly 100 Toyota Supras met on Monday to mark the mighty muscle car’s 20th anniversary in style.

The Toyota Supra Owners Club hosted the birthday celebration, supported by Toyota GB, at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon. The line-up ranged from cars in original UK specification to highly modified machines, including some of the finest examples in the country.

Supra’s UK history began in 1982 with the arrival of the Celica Supra, although a first generation Supra had already been sold elsewhere in the world. The third generation reached Britain’s shores in 1986, a thoroughbred super GT cruiser which Toyota developed to sit above the Celica range and compete towards the higher end of the sports car market.

The final model Supra, the Mk IV, was launched in the UK in 1993 to media acclaim as the fastest most powerful Supra ever. It delivered genuine supercar performance thanks to its twin-turbocharged 326bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine and has lit up race tracks and drag strips ever since.

You can read our detailed history of the Supra range here.

Supra owners have indulged in a considerable array of modifications to their vehicles with customisation kits and the option of tuning the 2JZ-GTE engine to more than 1,000bhp. This trend continues today with the Toyota GT86, for which a great range of personalisation options are available, alongside the TRD edition of the car.

The club organised a Supra convoy to the museum and Toyota GB hosted a hog roast lunch. Owners were able to visit the museum’s historic vehicle collection and take home a batch of commemorative Toyota Supra cupcakes.

  1. I have a 1993 MK V Supra, which was imported from Japan. On the back of it says Nakamura. Does anybody know what is it?

    1. Hello Evi,
      Thank you for your post. As far as we are aware there is no known connection of Nakamura with Toyota. However, we do know that this is a common Japanese surname and with a literal meaning of ‘Middle Village’. This is the surname of the designer of the second generation Aygo, and it is part of the address for a Toyota-affiliated company in Nagoya. Hope this helps a little further and if you have any other questions please let us know.

  2. Hi, I’m trying to trace my old Supra, reg was M823URD, white Mkiv, last seen in Frankfurt, tax and MOT has expired, any info please let me know.

    1. Hi Tim,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’ve checked some of our records and the latest information that we could find was that it was last seen in Germany and any further records would be held there. It may be worth contacting Toyota in Germany for further information. Thanks.

    1. Hi Ronald,

      Thanks.

      Unfortunately parts for the MkIV Supra are scarce, and we no longer produce these.
      We wish you the best of luck with your restoration project!
      Thanks.
