TAS 2018 Spotlight: Garage Revolver x Varis Toyota Supra

Garage Revolver and Varis team up to revamp a 90s classic

Sweeping lines that seem to begin out of nowhere before cresting at the hindquarters, then sinking upon the flanks before being swallowed up by oversized front fenders that carry the same flowing, accentuated features of the rear, before dissolving into an aggressive, open faced front bumper. Buried under a slick matte blue finish and adorned with a select few bits of carbon fiber, this is the MKIV Supra that many were talking about during and after the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon. Built by Garage Revolver, it modernized a cult classic and after taking a closer look, involved much more than just a cosmetic update.

Like any vehicle gracing the red carpet during Japan's premiere auto event, the Supra's exterior is what caught everyone's attention. Some embraced the exaggerated lines while others went bad on the revamped 90s hero. One thing is for certain; it did its job of garnering attention. The aero kit, designed by Varis, is one-of-a-kind and isn't for sale, though a modified version of this kit may eventually see the light of day.

Under each of the extended arches are Quantum coilovers with custom Swift springs, Brembo brakes and TE37 Ultras. While inside you'll find a rewrapped interior, Bride bucket seats, an OMP flat-bottom steering wheel and AIM digital display all surrounded by a custom-built roll cage.

Take a step closer, beyond the wild exterior and things under the hood get even more interesting. Sure, the DoLuck-built 2JZ with GReddy turbo, V-mount set up and custom intake manifold are the stuff of dreams, but you might have also noticed the missing throttle cable. That's because Garage Revolver has converted the car to drive-by-wire and are planning to harness the car's 1,200hp through a sequential transmission with paddle shifters. All of that power is directed through a custom, titanium, center-exit exhaust system created by Amuse.

It's always a risk to put a modern twist on a legend, but it was a gamble that Garage Revolver and Varis were more than willing to take. Based on the amount of interest that resulted from the Supra's debut at TAS '18, we're certain it paid off.

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock.

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his

Rodrez of Super Street: If the “swoosh” of the front fenders and pontoon-like sideskirts bolted to a FR platform that promises a sporty experience from behind the wheel doesn’t scream “turbo” then we don’t know what does.

At the end of the day, it’s all about perception. In enthusiast circles, Subaru is supposed to be one of just two current car brands that champions the horizontally opposed power plant, in addition to AWD layouts and turbocharging. By design, its BRZ naturally aspirated RWD coupe jointly developed with Toyota is going to be
