A new body kit makes it look better than ever.
The Toyota GR Supra has been on the market for a relatively short period of time, yet numerous tuners have turned their attention to the car and enhanced it in a variety of ways. Some have taken the potential of the BMW-powered sports car too far and actually detracted from the Supra's design, while others have said no to German power and fitted the A90 with its predecessor's engine.
In the digital world, the car has even been imagined as a sort of Batmobile. But if there's anything that we've learned from covering stories about tuning, it's that less is always more. Avante Design seems to agree, and this is its latest creation.
Avante says that it looked at the JDM community for inspiration and decided to try to make its body kit look almost original. We're not sure what aspect of the JDM tuning culture favors OEM mods over overt ones, but hey, whatever the inspiration really was, Avante's kit looks great.
At the front, you'll find a redesigned fascia with one massive intake scoop. This is complemented by a large front splitter with so-called aero flicks and larger vents outside the headlights. Side skirt extensions also feature for a resolved look at any angle. It's a remarkably attractive design and would likely not even be noticeable as aftermarket to the average onlooker, from the front.
At the rear, subtlety is again the name of the game, but you can definitely tell that the car has been customized. The rear window now features aggressive louvers with an integrated brake light and the impossible-to-miss rear wing. As you may have noticed, the pictures you see here are not of a real-life car but rather of a digital rendering of what the car will look like.
Supposedly created just to gauge interest, the plan has worked well, with Avante Design claiming that it has received an unprecedented level of interest in the kit. There's also a widebody version that includes a vented hood and a redesigned rear wing, and this kit definitely fits with JDM culture. Expect both to go into production soon.
