Watch The Owner Of This Toyota Supra Try, Try And Try Again To Hit 200 MPH In Puerto Rico!

The goal is everything when it comes to racing. Whether it’s to be the first to cross the finish line, the fastest on a stage, or to top the leaderboard, the goal is key. It’s why we do what we do on the track. Even if your goal was to just get out there and to drive your ass off…that’s the goal. Did you achieve it? No? If the track is still open, nine for ten you will turn around and go back out there for another shot, and this time, you’ll go harder and push further. That’s how this whole thing works.

The Toyota Supra from the mid-late 1980s and early 1990s isn’t the car for everybody. They are rear-drive and accept the Toyota JZ engine family. (The 1JZ engine was a stock option for the A70 model Supra.) And what is the JZ inline-six known for? That’s right: the ability to accept big boost with ease while turning stout horsepower numbers. Turn the wick up on a Supra’s six cylinder, add more boost pressure, and watch all hell break loose. No wonder tuners the world over love this engine family…

1320Video recently checked out the Puerto Rico Half Mile at an airport on the northwest end of the island and came across this nitrous-infused, 2JZ-powered A70 that was trying to make a 200 MPH run. Prior to, this machine had run 180 MPH in a half-mile, which is still plenty stout. To say that the driver gives it the ol’ college try is an understatement. Got sideways at launch? Try again. Came up short on the trap speed? Crank up boost, try again. 4th gear go AWOL? More boost, try again. We like this guy’s attitude!
