In the grey corner, flying the flag of the Rising Sun, is the fifth-generation Toyota Supra. It is powered an inline-six that is turbocharged. The motor is mated with an eight-speed automatic that also drives the rear wheels. The Supra is this video isn’t quite standard. It has been breathed upon by UK tuning specialists Litchfield and now boasts 600 N.m of torque. The automatic Ford doesn’t have any form of launch control, whereas the Toyota does, which also tilts matters a little.

It’s not quite a fair fight, but interesting to watch nonetheless as the two cars go head-to-head in three straight line challenges. Click below to enjoy the sports coupe drag race video.
