The driver of this classic Toyota Supra A80 decided to make a swift turn and things didn’t end well for both him and the car.

The Toyota Supra A80 is one of the most iconic movie cars of this generation. Thanks to its repeated appearances in the Fast and Furious franchise as Brian O’ Conner’s ride, the car has a string following inside and outside the US. Brian did make the switch to the Nissan GTR later.

But the Supra A80 that he drove in The Fast and the Furious was so much a part of Paul Walker’s character that the creators brought the same model back during that emotional send-off scene in Furious 7.

So whenever I come across a crash scene involving a Toyota Supra A80, it hurts. Same goes for this one. And just like the Toyota Celica crash which we posted a while ago, this one too took place in Australia. Queensland to be precise, if we go by the video description.

This video too comes from Dash Cams Australia and the description indicates that the Toyota Supra A80 was piloted by a “young lad” who wasn’t hurt after the four-meter drop down the embankment.

If you take closer look at the footage, you’ll see that the driver made a hard-left turn, perhaps in an attempt to take the road on the left. We aren’t sure on whether this is a standard case of the driver overshooting the turn and then making a very late attempt to get on the intended course. But it certainly looks like it.

Anyway, it was too late for anything once the steering was heaved to the left post the turn. The Supra’s rear end lost its composure and it slid off the road, before taking the leap into the ditch. The driver was fine despite the four-meter leap.

The same can’t be said about the Toyota Supra A80 which is in a bad shape as seen in the images which have been added to the video. However, going by the pictures, this fourth-generation Supra can still be saved, as there are no signs of catastrophic structural damage.
