i'm a muscle car guy, i'm goin with the GT 500... but idk any specs about the old supra....


i would say a shelby gt500..with slick tires thou otherwise the rear end will just be spinnin tire at the line


what do you consider "full mod"??? supras can reach over 1000 hp "full mod" so you will need to be more specific. because a "fully modded" supra in my eyes is basically untouchable by most cars on the market...including ferrari, lambo, porsche, and etc...


Yep. Theres a reason why every time Jeremy Clarkson describes a car with bad handling as 'it handles like a mustang'. The Supra might not handle grip as well as some newer cars but its still wicked and it really depends on the driver. Also, many people dont understand that its not about how big your peak horsepower is, but how quickly you can make use of it. The non-linear turbocharge power curve is what makes turbo cars that quick. A heavier 450bhp GT-R has a split second faster 0-60 than a 580bhp Lamborghini for that reason, aside from the dual clutch factor. But then again, you arent clear about what you mean by full modifications. Cuz if the GT was fully race lightened, had swapped LSD's, had chassis stiffening parts and you made a prayer for the traction control to work, it will be a tough customer too.


Supra, but good luck finding one with extremely well done mods, or one with no mods at all.
