Brilliant Red

Written by : Posted on December 6, 2011 : 18 Comments

It’s been close to twenty years since the MKIV Supra was first introduced, yet it remains among my favorite cars of all time. The sexy curves of this timeless design just keeps looking better and better as the time goes by. The owner of this clean Supra is Michael Nguyen from New York, and I think he’s really done a superb job of making it look this good. It started naturally aspirated and then went on to getting a single turbo conversion. Soon the engine modding became an addiction, but it was the exterior that was in desperate need of some work.

Eventually the numerous dents and scratches acquired throughout the years took a toll on the body. Michael decided to change things a bit and painted the car Brilliant Red, the color coming from an Audi. A set of HKS Hipermax II coilovers was the suspension of choice to give it a functional, yet clean, drop all around. Michael says he has two sets of wheels, both of them CCW. These are CCW SP16A 19×8.5f and 19x10r, the other set are CCW Classics 18×10.5f and 18x12r.

It isn’t over yet for this bad boy though, over the winter it will get some extra engine goodies, a new turbo, and a tune. Once it’s done, Michael expects to make around 700hp. Now that makes this Supra come together perfectly, what a beauty!
