Rutledge Wood hits SEMA with the Toyota GR Supra HyperBoost Edition
Remember Rutledge Wood, ex-anchor of Top Gear USA? The guy went under the radar after abandoning the show in 2016, but made an unexpected SEMA comeback with a unique tuning project.
A known Supra lover, Wood brought his own version of the sports car to the expo, dubbed HyperBoost Edition. He enlisted the help of LL17 Motorsports for the job.
The project is based on the newest A90 GT Supra and features a carbon-fiber front spoiler lip, widened aprons, fenders and side skirts, a gorgeous old-school Supra wing, and a ducktail spoiler. The body wears a TRD Cement Grey paint, and the roof is also made of carbon fiber.
The stock wheels made room for 20-inch Lightspeed Racing forged rollers sporting Apple Candy Red spokes and visual carbon-trimmed rims. The tires are Continental ExtremeContact, and the suspension kit is KW Variant 3.
One final visual highlight comes in the form of six-piston Brembo brakes on the front axle. Aside from looking sporty, the performance calipers and discs serve a practical purpose as well, because the output of the 3.0-liter BMW I6 engine has more than doubled and now amounts to 750 hp (559 kW).
