A Supra set a new speed record recently, when it ran a quarter-mile in below seven seconds... and broke the 240 mph barrier.

The EKanooRacing 2JZ GT86 set the GCC Super-Street 1/4-mile record at the 2014/2015 Bahrain National Drag Racing Championship at the Bahrain International Circuit... with a time of 6.05 seconds, speeding at 240 mph.

Details about what's under the hood is unknown, but the EKanoo team says it has a 2jz motor with 98 precision turbo that is mated to a 5-speed liberty transmission.
