Introduction

Paul Wright
Professional Consigner

The A70 Launched as the third generation Supra in 1986, and by 1987 the 3.0i received a turbocharged upgrade creating this 90’s icon.

Following on from the huge success of the first and second generation Toyota Supra through the 1980’s, the third generation Supra would continue in its predecessors footsteps to become a sports car as well as a comfortable GT. The new streamlined body of the coupe sits on the Toyota Soarer platform keeping the rear-wheel drive layout. New aluminium lightweight double wishbone suspension keeps the car stable in the corners.

The Supra was available with either a four cylinder 2.0 litre, a 2.5 litre straight 6 or the 3.0 straight 6, which would become the 3.0i Turbo a year later. Producing 231BHP and 240 lb-ft of torque, with this new found power, the Supra was propelled from 0-60MPH in an impressive 6.1 seconds.

Quite a rare sight nowadays, the 3.0i Turbo Supra is definitely up there with some of the most iconic cars of the 1990’s. This particular one has been graced with new carpets, the seats have been recolonised and it has had a respray to freshen it up, all giving the Supra a new lease of life. Mechanically it looks to have been well cared for, and with relatively low mileage being covered over its 30 year life, it’s still a joy to drive.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Paul after meeting Stuart the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

After owning one of these back in the late 1990’s, the nostalgia came flooding back when I spotted this for sale.

Stuart has been the custodian of this 1991 Toyota Supra 3.0i Turbo for just over 2 years. With 7 previous keepers who have clearly stored it more than driven it, as it’s only covered ~86,724 miles in its 30 year existence. Stuart has carried out quite a few jobs on the car which we will get to shortly, and these have brought the condition of the Supra back up to scratch.

Stuart is also a massive Bentley fan and currently has two residing on his drive, and with the nostalgia itch scratched, this means there is no room for the Supra. He will be more than happy to answer any questions you have in the comments below.

Exterior

Taking you straight back to the 90’s, ultra cool pop-up headlights, smooth styling and rear wheel drive.

Wheels and Tyres

Fitted with the original Supra wheels, complete with the centre caps, they are in good condition with a couple of age related marks and some paint has chipped off in places, but there doesn't look to be any corrosion.

The tyres are in good condition with plenty of miles remaining for the new lucky keeper. Please see more images of the wheels in the exterior gallery.

Bodywork

The Toyotas bodywork looks to be in good order, with the doors, boot and bonnet panel gaps looking to align as they should, everything opens and closes nicely.

There is a small blister on the driver side wing to mention, and some light corrosion behind some trim on the inside of the passenger door shut. The car has recently had a repair done to the sill, which was a small hole, and then the underside has been thoroughly cleaned and undersealed to help future proof it from any unwanted corrosion issues.

Please take the time to look through the hi-resolution images we have taken for a more detailed look at this 1991 Supra Turbo.

Paint

Nine months ago Stuart decided to treat the Supra to a fresh coat of bright red paint to freshen up the 30 year old paintwork. The paintwork looks to be in good condition, as you would expect being only 9 months old. There is a small scuff on the rear corner of the bumper to mention, but overall it looks to be free from any noticeable chips or scratches.

The images taken are from various angles and reflections showing off the wonderful lines of this 90’s classic at its best, as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. Please take the time to fully assess the condition of the exterior.

Glass and Trim

The glass looks to be in good condition, other than age related marks there is nothing that jumps out at you. The seals and trim are all in good condition, apart from some of the black missing on the windscreen trim, but included with the sale is another set of trims.

The pop up headlights work as they should. Stuart has replaced the standard indicator and side repeaters for clear versions for a cleaner look, but does have the originals which are included, should you wish to return them back to the factory option.

Another modification Stuart painstakingly carried out, was to convert the rear lights to LED. These came from the states as a kit where you had to mount and solder every LED and resistor in place, and there are a lot! Again, he did get another set of lights to do this, so the originals are intact and included.

Please take a look at the photos and videos for a more detailed look at the exterior.

Interior

Recolonised grey leather and new carpets have given the interior of this Supra Turbo a new lease of life.

Seats and Carpets

Finished in grey leather, Stuart had the seats recolonised by a local company as they had started to show some patina. The result is very pleasing, and the seats are in lovely condition with no obvious signs of wear, especially on the usual areas like the bolsters.

At the same time as having the seats done he also ordered from Miami a new carpet set to finish off the interior. This is in excellent condition. The boot area is clean and tidy. Lifting up the carpet reveals the spare wheel, jack and wheel brace, and the boot floor has also been treated to some sound proofing.

Dashboard

The dashboard is free from any marks or damage that we could see, and the instruments are all reported to be working as they should with no warning lights displayed with the engine running. The odometer is showing a reading of ~86,724 miles, and the oil pressure is at a healthy level when running.

Please see the interior gallery for more hi-resolution images.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The Supra steering wheel does have wear to the leather, but is in keeping with the mileage of the vehicle. There is also some slight wear to the lettering on the buttons for the cruise control, which is working as it should.

Being an automatic, the gear knob doesn't really get a lot of heavy use and so is therefore in good condition. The letters to the side are clear and legible, and the ECT, button works as it should. Please see the interior gallery for more hi-resolution images of the interior.

Mechanics

Toyota didn’t disappoint in 1987, they upgraded the already powerful 3.0L to a turbo version producing 232BHP.

Engine and Gearbox

The Supra’s silky smooth straight 6 purrs away quietly, just waiting to have the loud pedal pressed. Stuart reports there are no issues with the car and it fires up first time from cold, as you can see in our cold start video. The car has been well maintained looking through the paperwork, and looks to have had everything it’s needed.

Inside the engine bay you will see the hoses have been changed for silicone items, offering both a performance upgrade to the turbo intake hose, and are aesthetically pleasing.

The gearbox in the car is a 4 speed automatic, with changes in gears nice and smooth. It also has the ECT (Electronic Controlled Transmission) button, which allows the car to rev higher before changing gear. Watch the "On The Road" video to see the car in action.

Suspension and Brakes

Looking at the suspension from under the car, there doesn't appear to be any leaks which we could see. The passenger side front damper has been replaced whilst in Stuart's ownership.

The brakes are working as they should, bringing the car to a halt in a straight line. The rear discs and pads were replaced just a few months ago, along with a new set of front pads. There was also a flexi hose replaced, and Stuart did buy 3 extra just in case the others needed to be replaced, which are included in the sale.

The Drive

Definitely a fun car to drive and also a head turner. The car is quiet on the road, the stainless steel exhaust isn’t intrusive to the cabin and the ride is smooth, with no noises coming from the suspension or the transmission.

Electrics and Other

Stuart has upgraded the original head-unit to a Bluetooth double din unit. He has retained the factory unit and it is included with the sale. The switches throughout the car are in good order with minimal signs of any wear to them, and are all reported to work as they should.

An important upgrade Stuart was keen to have done was updating the air conditioning system to accept the more modern gas. With this work done the air con is reported to be working as it should.

Please see the high quality images for the interior of the Supra.

History and Paperwork

A good collection of invoices together with nearly all the old MOT certificates create a nice history file for this 90’s Supra Turbo.

There is a good order of invoices for parts purchased over the past few years, in particular since Stuart has owned the car. The car comes with two sets of keys along with the Driver’s handbook and wallet.

The MOT is valid until the 11th November 2022. There were some advisories when the car failed the previous MOT, but you will be glad to hear they have all now been addressed and it passed with no advisories.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned an HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
