A 1,000+hp Supra Constructed For Gatebil Insanity


I’ve stated it earlier than and I’ll say it once more – there’s nothing else like Gatebil. The massive summer time Gatebil occasions held at Mantorp Park in Sweden and Rudskogen Motorsenter in Norway are the spotlight of the 12 months for a lot of Scandinavian automotive fans – particularly those who prefer to get together exhausting.

However whereas the lesser-known and far smaller Gatebil occasions held in spring and autumn may have a calmer environment, the identical can’t be stated in regards to the builds that flip up. You’re at all times assured to see one thing loopy you’ve by no means seen earlier than, and for me at Mantorp in September, it was the Quick Habits Racing Toyota Supra.

Strolling across the paddock after a chaotic day is an efficient means of winding down, assembly new individuals, and testing the automobiles. However I should have walked previous the ’96 Supra no less than a dozen occasions and, for no matter purpose, didn’t go in for a better look. Fortunately, certainly one of my pals instructed me I positively ought to.


As soon as I did, it solely took a break up second for me to know I wanted to trace down the proprietor and full a fast shoot, and Stian Andresen was greater than eager to roll his Supra onto Mantorp Park’s entrance straight within the night so we may get it accomplished.


The 39-year-old Norwegian artist has been round automobiles all his life. Having grown up with a father who was each a mechanic and a rally driver, Stian realized a factor or two and was set on a car-loving path early on. Within the many years since, he’s owned every little thing from a Ford Sierra RS Cosworth to a Ferrari, however nothing has been fairly as loopy as his Supra, which was constructed up for common Gatebil insanity, together with drift.


Stian had a transparent imaginative and prescient for his Supra with the primary inspiration coming from the JDM motherland. To see that imaginative and prescient by means of, the Toyota’s exterior has been totally reworked, with many genuine Japanese aftermarket components within the combine.


From the Ridox entrance bumper, aspect skirts and rear overfenders, to the adapted-to-fit Rocket Bunny Pandem 350Z entrance overfenders and TRD wing, it’s all real stuff. Including to that is are HGK carbon fiber doorways and a customized carbon boot lid from Thomas Karlsen at TK Motorsport in Norway.


It’s refreshing seeing some real JDM wheels getting used to tear up the monitor. The Advan Racing RG-D2s measure 18×9.5-inch within the entrance and 18×11-inch out again, all wrapped in Sailun 265 and 285-section rubber.

With the outside cranked all the way in which as much as 10, the remainder of the automotive should certainly match, proper?


Completely. Contained in the cabin, the very first thing you discover is extra carbon. The dashboard is a carbon fiber reproduction of the manufacturing facility Supra merchandise, whereas the shifter is a carbon HGK piece that controls a Samsonas RS90 5-speed sequential gearbox.

Together with an in depth Linnerud FIA-spec roll cage, the inside additionally options Sparco seats, harnesses and steering wheel, an Ecumaster digital show and PDM, Woodward steering column, and a hydraulic e-brake from RAD Industries. Sweet red-painted particulars add a bit pop of coloration.


The rear homes an FIA-approved 38-litre Radium gasoline cell with twin Walbro pumps in a Radium cradle mount. A Mishimoto radiator with a Radium coolant enlargement tank retains the engine up entrance cool.


This all after all results in the primary attraction: the Supra’s hard-tuned 2JZ-GTE VVTi powerplant.


With a four-figure horsepower purpose in thoughts, Stian didn’t minimize any corners with the motor construct. Machined and expertly pieced collectively by RSF Efficiency in Norway to Stian’s specs, the inline-six options CP cast pistons, cast Manley H-Tuff connecting rods, customized RSF-spec camshafts, large Ferrea valves and extra. The 2JZ’s manufacturing facility twin turbos have been changed by a single Precision PTE Gen2 PT6870 with TiAL wastegate perched excessive on a customized Spjelkavik exhaust manifold. The massive front-mount intercooler and large exhaust are each exhausting to overlook.


Tuned by means of an Ecumaster engine administration system, the setup is producing a strong 1,058hp and 982Nm of torque.


As for suspension, steering and brakes, the Supra sits neatly on Feal coilovers with a full Wisefab package additionally in use. AP Racing 355mm discs and 6-pot calipers characteristic up entrance, with a twin caliper setup utilizing OEM JZA80 Euro-spec Supra calipers out again.


Whereas the automotive is at the moment hibernating over the Scandinavian winter, Stian is itching to get it again out on monitor and destroy some rear tires as quickly as this a part of the world thaws out.


I don’t suppose Stian is totally completed with the Supra simply but – not that I can see something he nonetheless must do to it – however there’s already one other undertaking on the horizon, this time centered round time assault. If that construct is something like this one, you realize it will likely be one thing mad.
