Toyota Supra Jumps Offroad Dukes of Hazzard-Style, Gets Wrecked

Ever wondered what would happen if somebody tried to pull a Dukes of Hazzard reenacting stunt, but swap the General Lee with a Toyota Supra?

The answer to that question is not all that simple, but with a Supra that’s not prepared for offroad action, the result is obviously, a disaster. We know this sounds a bit like an answer to a question nobody asked, but that’s exactly what the video below shows.

With a Supra that’s not prepped, the result will obviously be a disaster, one that may go as far as totaling the car. We’re not sure if this is the case with the Black Supra seen here, but the car is now in need of serious repairs.

Speaking of which, the Dukes of Hazzard Dodge Challenger vehicles featured plenty of reinforcement. Some were more rudimentary than other, as, for example, welding underbody components was one of the tricks used to keep the cars together.

The Supra ended going off the track after the car veered left on a braking section. What was supposed to be a safety area covered in grass turned out to be bumpy terrain. The worst part of it all is that, while the Toyota may have had most of its adventure on grass, it landed right back onto the track, ruining its suspension in the process.

Perhaps that rear wing played an important part in the trajectory of the Supra, but we can never be sure. Oh well, at least the wing did detach once its mission was over.

Now just think of all those car movie scenes where the four-wheeled contraptions hop about like bunnies and continue to run at full speed...
