The 2020 Toyota Supra was born tuned. And this is true in a literal way (think: Daigo Saito's 2JZ-swapped Mk V Supra, which came out way before customers got their cars, as well as in a metaphorical sense, as the huge fan base of the Mk IV Supra was built on its tuning-friendly nature (most of the credit obviously goes to the 2J). So it's no surprise that the race for the quickest/fastest 2020 Supra is now on.
Aftermarket developers from across the world are working to turn the Japanese sportscar into a true weapon, with plenty of US developers being one of the driving forces behind this.

Last week, we talked about a Supra that had been massaged by AMS Performance, with its BMW-sourced B58 turbocharged 3.0-liter straight six having been taken to 452 hp and 461 lb-ft at the wheels - the toy managed to deliver a 11.54s quarter-mile run, with a trap speed of 121 mph.

This time around, we're looking at a Toyota modified by Real Street Performance. And despite the dyno charts showing 442 hp and 477 lb-ft at the rear wheels, the toy worked it way to an 11.44s 1,320 feet sprint (it's best trap speed sits at 118.3 mph).

The engine of this car features the obvious ECU plat, a downpipe, along with a methanol injection kit. Then there's the drag-friendly, but still street-legal, Toyo R888R rubber.

Of course, more and more tuners will take the new Toyota Supra further, so it wouldn't surprise me to see the sportscar entering the 10-second arena soon.

However, a quick glance at the comments section of the YouTube video showcasing the adventure of this Supra reveals something that looks like a trip down the offtopic lane, but isn't.

You see, it looks like many aficionados are willing to buy BMWs once the Supra tuning market matures and that doesn't involve the 2019 Z4 sibling of the Japanese sportscar.

Instead, the gear heads wish to go for the more affordable BMW models that are animated by the said BMW motor, such as the M240i or the 340i (sure, those pack different versions of the B58, but there's nothing the aftermarket tsunami won't be able to solve) and install the comprehensive list of future Supra mods.

And this is a camp that, unlike others on the Internet, seems to love Toyota and BMW just as much.
