Does this count as "riced out"?

If so, then rice away baby....

any car that approaches 250 mph is damm fast though. takes alot more than just putting a powerful engine in there. Then again, that twin turbo trans am didn't have much done to it and it went up to 283 mph at the salt flats back in the 80's . . . im sure that it could have it at that giant circle where the rest of the world does their speed runs on

That's done very clean. I would not consider it rice.

No non-functional park bench.........check
No mis-matching colored body panels...............check
No "all show and no go"...........check


Nope not rice.

Is the Nascar Camry rice? Nope. Is it a Toyota? Nope. I think the same logic applies here.

I wasn't considering this riced either....

I'd take it in a heatbeat. Of course, I'd take the regular Supra without the big engine too, so....

that Supra looks wicked, I've never really been a fan of the Supra, (it never looked aggressive enough) but that made me think twice... so if Japanese tuners are rice, and Italian V12's are pasta, what does that make the Camaro's V8?

Not sure why they had to put a V12 in there to get 1000hp.


There are plenty of Supras putting out similar hp numbers on the stock 6 cylinder w/boost.

Maybe they wanted it to be NA.

Who knows.

either way...not a fan of the way it looks.
