Legendary Unrecoverable Toyota Supra Mk3 Found In Japan
Crashed Toyota Supra Mk3 Found After Two Decades?
Published May 28, 2017
You have probably heard some stories about treasure hunters. This is another one, only this time, the hunter does not hunt the treasure, but the legend of a long forgotten crashed Toyota Supra Mk3 somewhere in the hills of Japan.
YouTuber Alexi, known for his car affection in Japan, went on an expedition in order to find the A70 Supra, which has been, allegedly, rotting for years. And after a short search at an undisclosed location, Noriyaro found the Supra.
This Crashed Toyota Supra Mk3 Belonged To A Drifter
As it seems it did belong to a racing driver or at least a drifter. The car has a roll bar inside, and it received its fair share of beating up. You can see dented fenders and a whole lot of other damage which probably happened before the car rolled down the mountain. Looking inside revealed to us that the MK3 Supra does not have a wheel and some of the seats are missing. Obviously, this car was all about racing and drifting. No wonder it ended up a few hundred feet under the twisty Japanese road.
Inside, one can find a lot of rocks, leaves, and spiders. Obviously, the Supra was out in the elements and the landslide did not spare the famed car. What is interesting is that one of the individuals commenting on YouTube actually noted that this Supra ended up here in 1992, after the driver lost control of it. They tried to recover it, but they could not. As Noriyaro reports, it is probably impossible to recover it even now without investing some serious money in the process. Honestly, if this thing goes viral enough, expect an IndieGoGo campaign for recovering this Supra and making it drivable.
Mk3 Supra has been in production from 1986 to 1993. It used a two liter, 2.5-liter and three-liter engines for the Japanese market. The most powerful version was the one with a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine good for 276hp and 268 lb-ft of torque.
