Watch This 1,800-HP Toyota Supra Pop A Wheelie

Video / Comments

It's a quarter-mile monster.

Ever heard of Real Street Performance? If you're a fan of the A80 Supra, massive turbochargers, and drag racing, then you probably have. But for the uninitiated, this is the company that can build a Supra that will "decimate all" at the track and still drive you home.

Lately, the company has turned its attention to the B58-powered A90, but the RSP name is most famous for what the guys can do with the iconic Toyota 2JZ motor. That Racing Channel recently captured some of Real Street Performance's work at the recent TX2K event, where the team's Supra was competing in the street car class.

The car you see here is called the "Yoda Supra", which explains the green paint. Jared Holt, or Jrod as his friends call him, is the pilot of the Supra, a car that has already managed a 7.29-second time at a previous event. Looking to better that result, the team entered the event and put down an impressive test time of 7.5 seconds without the aid of nitrous but with an astonishing 50 psi of boost through a massive 8685 Precision turbo. Competing against 196 other vehicles, the Toyota has a lot to deal with, especially considering how lax the rules in this class are, but things look good for the final test run.

Okay, we can talk about this car's performance and results all day, but the real reason that you're here is to see the wheelie. Well, skip ahead to 4:35 if you don't want to watch the whole vid but do want to see a Supra pull off a decent impression of a MotoGP-winning motorcycle. The car actually performs two wheelies, making the run nearly impossible to stay in. Nevertheless, the car ends the event positively, achieving a time of 7.27 seconds at an astonishing 191 mph. That's what more than 1,800 horsepower can do. To replicate those numbers in this fashion, you need a lot of money, a lot of knowledge, and the bravery to keep your foot down.
