Carbon Widebody 2020 Toyota Supra Looks Like a Lexus LFA

The 2020 Toyota Supra was literally born to be modded. Not only does its popularity build on the tuner rep of its predecessor, but the Japanese automotive producer even explained it left various bits and pieces on the table for aftermarket developers to exploit (for instance, the hatch is fully suitable for a wing, while the faux vents are waiting for tuners to replace them with real ones when the heat management requires it).

As such, it's no surprise there's a tuning frenzy revolving the Mk V Supra right now. In fact, this year's edition of the SEMA show, which is just around the corner (think: opening day set to November 5), will be a bit of a Supra fest, with plenty of builds coming in this form.

And we've seen plenty of wicked 2020 Supra projects to date, starting with one that debuted around the same time as the production car itself - I'm talking about the 2JZ-animated drift car run by Japanese pro driver Daigo Saito.

However, none of them was as wild as the rendering that brought us here. That's because this pixel stunt portrays the Japanese sportscar in widebody form.

Of course, a WB is the least you can expect from a seriously modded Supra these days, but a simple glance at this puppy shows that it has gained quite a bit of real estate.

In fact, the thing now looks a bit like the Lexus LFA (the production car or the concept) and certainly sits closer to the aggressive design of the FT-1 concepts that got diluted en route to the production Supra.

Nevertheless, one of the most exciting features of this creation is also what might get in the way of the vehicle becoming reality. You see, the all-carbon nature of this build would cost a pretty penny, albeit truly bringing the car close to the carbon jewel that is the LFA.
