The 2002 Toyota Supra RS-Z (A80) is a coupe sports car manufactured by Toyota for the Japanese domestic market.
The A80 generation is significantly lighter than the previous A70 generation, employing the use of aluminium for the bonnet, and some suspension components, as well as a plastic fuel tank cover and a magnesium steering wheel.
Its twin-turbocharged 2JZ-GTE engine uses a sequential induction system, having exhaust gasses pass through the turbine of one turbo as low as 1,800 rpm before spooling the second turbo around 4,000 rpm and having both operate in parallel above 4,500 rpm, effectively reducing lag introduced by both turbochargers but also allowing both to maximise air input at higher rpm.
Although going on sale in May 1993, it was sold only in the Japanese domestic market from August 1999 onwards, with the final example rolling of the production line in July 2002 at Toyota's Higashi Fuji manufacturing facility in Susono, Shizuoka, Japan.
For the final three production years, only three trims level were offered and all were fitted with the 3.0-litre inline-six 2JZ engine: the naturally aspirated "SZ" alongside the two twin-turbocharged "RZ" and "RZ-S" trims.
The "RZ-S" trim was sold as the entry package for the twin-turbo 2JZ-GTE, with the more expansive "RZ" package including Recaro front seats, 17-inch wheels, and larger brake calipers.
