Lifted 2020 Toyota Supra Looks Offroad-Ready, Has Big Roof Rack

With SUVs enjoying more and more traction each year, the popularity of machines that come to offer an alternative to crossovers is also on the rise. And the rising genre I want to bring under the spotlights revolves around jportscars (jacked up sportscars), with the 2020 Toyota Supra rendering we have here being a brilliant example of this.

The pixel play sitting before us gifts the Mk V Supra with serious rugged terrain gear. It all starts with the offroad wheel and tire package, while those fat arches make sure the mud doesn't reach the sky.

Then we have the custom front bumper, which could probably house a winch and can certainly protect the nose of the car from the inevitable driving errors that occur while tackling rugged terrain.

A potential rollover? The risk of damage might just be limited by that massive roof rack. But you probably won't get in such trouble, which means you can use the said hardware to hold a tent.

Alas, the rear visibility might be compromised on this Supra and this is the price one has to pay for the rear deck of the car accommodating a full-size offroading spare wheel.

Oh, and let's not forget those side steps, which allow one to easily get in and out of the Toyota.There's much more to these pixels than meets the eye
We need to take this rendering seriously.You see, as mentioned in the intro, jportscars are on the rise, whether we're talking about renderings, real-world builds (here's a lifted Mk IV Supra) or concept cars (think: Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo).

Sure, the tuning world is focusing on widebody kits and big wings for the 2020 Toyota Supra right now. But an offroading build like the one imagined here should be born pretty soon and it will change the game.

PS: Taking a Supra to the woods without the said rugged terrain transformantion can look like... the adventure in the second instagram post below, which is as real as they get.

After spending a few hours with the @toyotauk Supra, I had so many ideas on what I wanted to do to it. This was designed and built as a blank canvas for tuners to go crazy with it and I can see it. The car utilises a Toyota-revised B58 BMW engine (the same engine found in the M140i) which I know for a fact is a very tuneable platform. In the interior you find carbon, leather and very comfy sports seats which let you sit down properly low. Some of the defining features of the design for me are the Zagato-esque ‘Double Bubble’ roof and the ducktail spoiler. I think this is not only the most significant model in Toyota’s current lineup but also the most subjective with most seeing this a ‘rebadged BMW’. Admittedly the cabin is very BMW, the infotainment system is iDrive, the steering wheel is the same and so are the warning sounds if you leave your door open etc. But is a Japanese car with German internals really a bad thing? For me, it’s the best possible way that this car could have come out and I understand why Toyota chose to utilise what is such a good engine in the first place instead of developing their own. Thank you @keyfobandgob for letting me have a poke at the new A90. #Toyota #A90 #Supra #GazooRacing #RenaissanceRed #Red #JDM #Japanese #SportsCar #BMW #B58 #AmazingCars247 #Automotive #Photography #LightPainting
