The Advan Livery × HKS widebody Supra stunner
The car is equipped with Advan’s next Neova concept model tires
It was announced that this GR Supra done up in traditional Advan colors will be the vehicle of MAX Orido. Its tuning setup and specification is based on circuit use, but it was finished in a flexible way to allow for street driving as well.
The exterior is equipped with a full HKS premium body kit. Front and rear fenders add 90mm of width on each side, bringing the overall width to a shocking 2 meters. It includes a specially designed tall GT wing which gives it an overall form similar to a Super GT car.
The 3.0L twin-turbo engine is already powerful enough in its stock factory state, but is strengthened by a special tuning menu. HKS’s air cleaner was added to the intake system and an HKS exhaust was also installed.
The interior has a sporty finish with carpeting removed. The dashboard uses the genuine factory upper half but the lower half is a one-off original dry carbon piece. The center console was also remade.
The roll cage which has a beautiful layout is a one-off original produced by MAX ORIDO RACING.
The wheels are Advan Racing GT in F10.5J -19 R11J -20 sizing. The suspension is based around HKS’s Hipermax MAX IV SP. Arms were extended to match the widebody spec of the car.
The tires are a concept model of the next Advan Neova developed my Yokohama. Sizing is F275/35-19 and R305/30-20. The tread pattern was changed from the model exhibited at Tokyo Auto Salon 2020, but it keeps the left-right asymmetrical pattern.
When asked about the development status of this new model tire, the answer was that there appears to be a delay due to the influence of coronavirus but the goal is in sight. We are looking forward to the arrival of the next-generation Advan Neova.
