Pandem Widebody 2020 Toyota Supra Shows Dominating Swan Neck Wing

With less than one month separating us from the 2019 edition of SEMA, multiple vlogers are rushing to install Pandem widebody kits on their 2020 Toyota Supras. However, back in Japan where the said aero package was born (and has been installed on drift cars for months), its developer has come up a fresh version of the kit.

So far, we've only received renderings of the v1.5 Pandem kit for the Mk V Toyota Supra, but these 3D images are elaborate enough to paint a pretty picture.

It looks like the difference is made by the new wing. As opposed to that we've already met (here's a real-world example), which has a trapezoidal shape, with its mounts on the sides, the wing seen here makes use of swan neck mounts, while two additional ements connect the wing to the hatch of the sportscar.

You can check out the new Pandem kit in the gallery above and whether you prefer Silver or Black, the pixel play has something for you.

Keep in mind that many aficioandos mistakenly label these kits as Rocket Bunny, perhaps because this label has penetrated the Western culture further than Pandem.

However, we're talking abou two different kits coming from the same developer, namely Tra Kioto. And the company is the brainchild of a gear head called Kei Miura.

Now, in case you're wondering what swan neck mounts do, besides lending the street machine a racecar look, you should know these help maximize the downforce of the wing, especially once the yaw angle of the car gets serious.

In fact, you can enjoy an explanation of this upper mount in the piece of footage below, which comes from YouTuber Kyle Engineers and brings a bit of a Le Mans aroma (the infamous 24-hour race is where the said wings were initially tested).
