Watch the Toyota Supra “Road Arrows” perform a smoky stunt display

Share

Inspired by the antics of aerobatic display teams, Toyota has formed its own “Road Arrows” to perform a series of high-speed maneuvers.

Nine GR Supra coupes were enlisted along with lead driver and stunt co-ordinator Paul Swift to dodge and weave at speed down Elvington airfield in the U.K.

Fitted with military-grade smoke grenades, the cars performed a number of stunts echoing those of the Royal Air Force Red Arrows display team, including a Mirror which saw the Supras rush at each other and passing with only inches to spare, and an Opposition Barrel where the cars corkscrew through opposing lines. It’s nail-biting stuff.

Apart from the smoke bombs which were modified to be triggered remotely the Supras were all completely standard 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter models running Michelin Pilot 4S tires.

If you’d like to know how these sensational stunts were put together take a look at the behind-the-secnes film below. Oh, and don’t try this at home folks!
