2020 Toyota Supra Driver Floors It, Crashes Right Into A Tree

No that long ago we came across several photos of a wrecked 2020 Toyota Supra, believed to be among the first totaled A90 models.

That particular car showed up at a salvage auction, and we have reason to believe it’s the same vehicle seen in recent videos documenting a crash that took place in Bethesda, Maryland.

The most interesting footage shows the Supra’s final moments and appears to have been captured by the passenger with a webcam or something, as he can be seen monitoring the car’s performance with some kind of app on his smartphone.

It all went terribly wrong, however, as the footage reveals. At one point, the driver floors the throttle, sending the Supra Launch Edition’s rear end into a slide and the nose aiming straight at a tree. The impact was quite strong, but thankfully both airbags deployed and the two adrenalin-seekers escaped alive, although the passenger is said to have suffered more serious injuries.

While we can’t know for sure, judging by the sudden way the Supra lost traction the driver must have switched off the driving aids – not the best of ideas in a powerful, rear-wheel-drive car you don’t know that well. Cold weather might have been a factor too, considering that the Supra Launch Edition comes equipped from the factory with summer tires.

Sure, the new Supra is ripe for tuning, but perhaps it’s best to make sure you can get the hang of it before adding extra power. Ironically, the owner posted some photos on Facebook before the crash with the caption “Out here tune’n my mk5 ? y’all ain’t ready…” As it turns out, neither was he for what would eventually transpire. Oh well, at least things could have ended up much worse.
