This 2020 Toyota GR Supra owner was driving along one day when he hydroplaned and hit a wall on the highway. Tj Hunt and Calvin run popular YouTube Channels, but the Supra belonged to Calvin. While the damage doesn’t seem extensive at first glance, more was going on under the scratches. If you thought Toyota cars were boring, wait until you see how this Toyota Supra looks at the end.
Crashing a 2020 Toyota GR Supra
The 2020 Toyota GR Supra is still available from Toyota. On the official Toyota website, you can still pick up a GR 3.0 for $49,990. The 3.0 Premium starts at $53,990, and the Launch Edition starts at $55,250. All three of these trim levels get 355 hp. The GR Supra is a trendy new car, just like the old body style was. A 2021 GR Supra was released this year and is offered in a 2.0 (255 hp), 3.0 (382 hp), 3.0 Premium (382 hp), and A91 Edition (382 hp) trim levels.
The story of the 2020 Toyota GR Supra and throtl
While driving, a Subaru WRX was driving next to the 2020 Toyota GR Supra. The Supra started to hydroplane on the highway and ended up hitting the wall. During the initial inspection done on the highway’s shoulder, most of the left rear quarter panel was damaged. The rear bumper, tail light, and wing also needed to be replaced.
The Toyota Supra was able to drive onto the flatbed truck after lifting the suspension a bit. The joys of air suspension. Well, the people at throtl (typo intentional) bought it. Apparently, it was an easy decision. Throtl calls itself a “premium retailer for performance car and truck parts online.”
Anyway, Calvin wanted to move on from the Toyota GR Supra, and the people at throtl wanted it. Insurance did not salvage the title, and since the plan was to make the Supra widebody anyway, removing the pieces from the rear was necessary anyway. Sort of necessary. The YouTube channel usually gives away the vehicles after using the build for content, and a GR Supra is a popular contenting-making build.
A heartwarming story in the making
Once the Supra made it to the shop, it went on a lift to inspect the damage. The exhaust needed some work, and most of the arms on the right side need replacing. The shop repaired those bits and took it out for a spin. The GR Supra was back on the road! The shop replaced none of the bodywork at that point, but it wouldn’t make sense to do that first.
It has taken a bit of time to get that straightened out, but the 2020 Toyota GR Supra is on the mend. After an alignment, the shop started on the widebody process. It got a fresh new set of HRE C106 wheels and a StreetHunter widebody kit. It seems like once the rest of the wide body kit is painted and fully attached, the Supra is ready to hit the streets again. Once that happens, it will likely get raffled off to someone in the U.S. For now, the story of this 2020 Toyota GR Supra crashing has a happy ending.
