BLITZ continue their lifelong love affair with the Supra and Skyline.
In 1997, a joint project with OPTION magazine developed a fully tuned “753 Supra” which was based on the JZA80 model. The goal was 7 minutes and 53 seconds, the record set by a street car at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. They achieved the record of 7:49 on commercial radial tires.
In 1999, another target record came up with the goal to break the world record of 347km set on the German Autobahn. This was a record set by the Gemballa Porsche. Blitz developed the R348 Skyline to attack this record.
Driver Daijiro Inada was behind the wheel to challenge this record and recorded 343.35km/h in 6th gear at 8000rpm on July 18th. Although just a few steps below the record, this proved to be a breakthrough in Japanese tuning cars and proved the potential of commercially available parts for the Skyline GT-R at that time.
Now in 2020, Blitz will unveil the current GR Supra and Skyline 400R on the big stage of Tokyo Auto Salon. Both are reported to be equipped with completely original aero parts. Those that know the history and legacy of Blitz tuning are sure to be in for a treat.
The GR Supra has introduced the SZ-R and SZ models in addition to the RZ. It has been decided to develop tuning plans that suit each respective model.
Blitz also unveil their new Skyline 400R which has a 405ps output. Although high-quality tuning is expected from this model, many are hoping it will give way to a larger development similar to the R348.
In addition to these two models, Blitz are also set to reveal their latest development in suspension parts. This kit, the DAMPER ZZ-R Spec DSC Plus with built-in G sensor is on standby. It will first be released for the SZ model with RZ and SZ-R models to be released at a later date.
The parts will be released for other models one after another. Blitz will have all this on display at their Auto Salon 2020 booth. We are excited to join them at the starting line with a refresh of Blitz’s Skyline and Supra legends.
