The Castrol-livery Toyota Supra may be the most memorable car for fans of the early Gran Turismo PlayStation games. Tons of us spent hours saving our video game winnings to build this exact dream machine, but eventually we all had to grow up (sorta), and abandon our daydreams of ever owning such a car in real life.
That dying childhood daydream just got a reprieve: in support of .
This Supra wears the full Castrol livery, sponsor decals, and bodacious rear wing that first captured adolescent minds in the original Gran Turismo game. Powered by a warmed-over twin-turbo motor with go-fast goodies from HKS and Blitz, Toyota says the promotional car is good for 370 horses. It wears a full Veilside body kit and sits 30mm lower on 19-inch wheels, though, sadly, all that nostalgia power goes through a four-speed auto.
Also up for the charity auction is , a one-off Toyota Picnic van built by the automaker's UK branch on a lark. Under the hood is the 210-hp turbo four from a Celica Turbo GT4, creating a minivan that could hustle from 0-60 in 7.5 seconds back in 1997.
The bad news is, both auctions are limited to UK residents only. The good news? If you're a Brit, and you've always dreamed of driving a real-life version of the Gran Turismo car you adored, that daydream is just slightly less unattainable today.
