Note: drive better than this guy.
This is not the first Toyota Supra to be involved in a serious wreck and it definitely won't be the last. Last May, for example, a new 2020 Supra had a bad accident at the Nurburgring during an industry pool driving period. Yes, that means a Toyota employee was at the wheel. This time, however, the Supra in question is privately owned. Well, it was. Soon to be up for auction on the IAAI website are the remains of this 2020 Toyota Supra Launch Edition.
The entire front end was smashed and the windshield shattered. Needless to say, the airbags were also deployed. So, what caused the accident? That would be the driver/owner. Ironically, the owner wrote on Facebook only minutes before the crash that he was "Out here tune'n my mk5… y'all ain't ready…" Turns out he was the one who wasn't ready.
We don't know exactly what modifications were done but evidently it was too much for the driver to handle. A stock Supra comes powered by a BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with 335 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, though those figures are likely a bit higher according to independent dyno tests. Anyway, the aftermath of the crash is not pretty and the Supra looks to be completely totaled. If there are any MK5 Supra owners out there already in need of any spare parts from the B-pillar back, then look no further.
The Turbulence Gray coupe is located in a salvage yard in Maryland but as of this writing, the listing does not provide a starting price. It does mention the vehicle won't start (not shocking) and its digital dash is inoperable. Anyone interested should check the listing over the next few days for the auction time and date. As for the owner, hopefully he had good insurance.
