I was told by the owner that this vehicle cranks out 750 HP. I am no expert on Supras..but the engine looked and sounded impressive. He was *slightly* inebriated when he drove in this video...so pardon the driving quality. I think this is an awesome car nonetheless and worth sharing.

Always interesting to see twin turbo big horsepower Supra builds. I know there are a few guys running twin set-ups successfully, but it seems a lot easier and cheaper to run a properly-sized single with all the advances in turbo tech these days.

I have seen those TX2K Supras...those are impressive. Are they actually capable of 'normal' driving on the street? I know this one in my video is used in autocross a lot and other track days, as well as street-driven.

Slightly inebriated and cars don't go together. Sweet supra non the less.

Very interesting. I don't know why I didn't really picture crazy high hp Supras driving around on the street normally when I often see a 1550 HP UGR Twin Turbo Gallardo LP550 driving around...Double standard I guess.

There's not many clutches that allow a 1,000whp car to be streetable, you definitely have to pay to play.
:wink:

Tilton Triple Carbon Clutch Supra MKIV

We are now offering the Tilton multi-plate clutch as used on our 9 second 6 speed Supra. This is the ultimate street/strip clutch, period. Reduce rotating mass by 30lbs+ with this hot street/strip set-up. The entire clutch assembly with flywheel weighs in at 9lbs!!! Triple carbon disks provide the work for holding and releasing big horsepower and torque.

We have gone through half a season already with only the slightest signs of wear. I can easily say that a single disk of reputable brand would have only held maybe one event before needing replacing (keep in mind slipping the clutch through first gear with over 800 whp). The Tilton loves to be slipped.

This clutch is built to last (estimated you can go 5-6 years on the same clutch with only 1-2 inexpensive rebuilds). Those of you with 650+ know that this is far from possible with any standard clutch and flywheel combination. Another thing to note is that you are able to slip the clutch at high horsepower/ high RPM with no problems what so ever, exactly what you need to get those great 60 foots needed to lower your ET. This clutch revs extremely quickly and is very streetable (and quiet at that).

For a Supra 750 crank or wheel horsepower isn't much. Most of the Supra action that attends TX2K every year is pushing 900-1000 to be competitive and the bigger builds crank out about 1200 RWHP.


The 1200whp cars got swallowed up last year. It's 1500whp or stay home this year
