There have been a fair number of tuners that have made the trek to the Nardo test track in Italy to see if their modified rides could break an illustrious top speed. The MTM Bimoto TT comes to mind, as does AC Schnitzer's GP3.10 3-series, Edo Competition's Lamborghini LP640 and 9ff's insane GT9. Another contender has been added to the list and it's just as impressive as the rest.

Top Secret has been making the show rounds with its twin-turbo'd V12 Supra for the past year, but it's finally putting its money where its mouth is and going for a top speed of 400 km/h (248 mph) later this year in Italy. Breaching 200 km/h hasn't been an issue since the boosted 6.0-liter V12 is supposedly pushing out over 1,000 hp.

You can read up on Kazuhiko "Smoky" Nagata's golden boy here and check a Japanese-language video of the Supra after the jump.

      Lol. My $16k Toyota is governed at 127mph, which is 204km/h. I believe that should be the 200mph, not 200km/h in the article.

      I've seen this car in action at Tsukuba Circuit. It's a beast, no doubt. The creator, smoky, even took time to talk to us common folk walking around the paddock area. He's a real cool guy. I've driven a couple of Toyota Centuries in Japan, in stock form, they're torque monsters. I can't imagine how this modified Century motor feels.

      Yea the Headlights on this car really top it off. Looks great.
      • 6 Years Ago
      no, you are right, it's ugly. tacky plastic looking crap.
      • 6 Years Ago
      No, the engine is from the 12-cylinder Japan-only Toyota Century.

      Breaching 200km/h isn't an issue for most cars...
