I think it’s fair to say that the Supra didn’t exactly launch to the sounds of positive cheering from the masses. Instead, it was taken for what it is, a BMW with a Toyota badge. Yep, that doesn’t necessarily need to be a bad thing, but as a halo car for the Toyota brand, it’s a shame they didn’t have more of an input.
But let’s not be hasty. It has at its disposal a BMW inline-6, one of the best in the business, but its petrol particulate filters in the exhaust mute its true voice. Thankfully, the aftermarket is here to help make the best of the Toyota Supra.
This exhaust system is made by Milltek, and as you can see from the video above taken at Goodwood Festival of Speed, it turns the Supra into the growling creature it should originally have been. It’s deeper, with gargling echoing bangs and a throaty note that is reminiscent somewhat of an aftermarket 2JZ. That’s much more like it.
The system replaces the original silencers with T304L stainless steel parts, the petrol particulate filter is delete4d, and brushed titanium GT-115 tailpipes brandish the rear of the Japanese sports car. Not only does it sound the part, but it looks it, too.
In fact, it’s so good because Toyota allowed Milltek early access to start development. Toyota really does want to provoke the aftermarket with this, and it’s happening right in front of us.
