Since we helped connect the dots for the Supras in Vegas Show 'n Shine, we thought it would also be cool to do a 'lil something special while we were already partnering up with Speed Vegas. We teamed up with our friends at ENEOS Motor Oil to make some unique trophies and present them to a few top cars from the show and photograph them at the end of the day for a quick featurette. Ladies and gentlemen, please join us in recognizing and congratulating Kimberly, Eric and Leo!

What started out as a bone stock Supra is now one of the cleanest and most tastefully modified Mk4s built right in Las Vegas. When Kimberly isn't busy selling real estate, she's spends her nights and weekends at Virtual Works Racing piecing together and building up her Mk4 to the show stopping quality it is today. Parts like the seats, panels, dash, floor mats and center console are all brand new OEM pieces. Under the hood is a stunning bay that's been tidied up and powdercoated satin black to contrast nicely against the Ibis white paint. As for power, no sacrifices were made as a catalog of Virtual Works Racing components strengthen and boost the 2JZ-GTE to four-digit horsepower numbers.

When it came to the most thorough build of the bunch, Eric's Mk4 Supra takes the crown. Eric's been a Supra fanatic since he was a kid when his father used to chauffer him around in a '89 Turbo. After he graduated high shcool, he inherited the Mk3 which eventually lead to a 612whp 1JZ-powered monster. During this time, he also picked up the Mk4 and has slowly built it into the beauty and the beast it is today. While it has 1,000+hp on tap from an E85 tune, he tells us he enjoys driving it around town in San Jose, but also makes multiple trips to Southern California to bring it to shows. It's not babied either - he's also participated at Shift S3ctor's half-mile races. The Ridox kit, Work Meister wheels, Brembos, plus all the carbon and matching interior mods made Eric's Supra easily a top dawg.

Imagine someone in your immediate family was sitting on an unmolested stock Supra. Wouldn't you try to do everything in your power to get it (family hookup maybe)? Well, this is exactly what happened with Leo Barrit, when his mother-in-law was ready to part ways with her Mk4 Supra. As the first and only owner of the well-maintained Supra, it was the perfect candidate for Leo's next project car. He eventually persuaded her to do a straight trade with a Lexus LS400 that he had, and the rest was history. A bit of an oddball, the Supra was one of the rare naturally aspirated 2JZ models. Leo yearned for more power, so he sourced a twin-turbo engine and beefed it up with BorgWarner turbos, and also converted to an E85 flex-fuel setup. He also modernized the suspension and brakes, as well as fitted a subtle TwinZ Design body kit which helps accentuate the original body lines. Our favorite part of the build is the custom fab work and titanium under the hood. Purely stunning!
