JAPAN – The McDonald’s Toyota Supra Happy Meal is the stuff of dreams for petrolheads of all ages. The fast food giant has teamed up with Toyota Gazoo Racing and toy manufacturer Tomica. Starting today, the GR Supra Tomica – with working headlights – is available in the McDonald’s Happy Set (the name for the Happy Meal in Japan) at outlets in the Yamaguchi Prefecture as well as the island of Kyushu.
This undoubtedly rubs salt in the wounds of Singaporean McDonald’s fans as local operations have been suspended until further notice. It is currently not known if a local McDonald’s Toyota Supra Happy Meal will ever become available.
Donuts at McDonald’s?
A smoke-filled promotional video features drifting champions Daigo Saito and Nobuteru Taniguchi. They drive – what else? – their Toyota Supra drift cars. The duo oversteer their way around a giant Big Mac, fries and McNuggets. McDonald’s may have brought the fries, but the “Drift Twins” brought the donuts, which are probably a bit more impressive:
In the full-sized world, the Toyota GR Supra currently retails between S$236,888 and S$256,888 with COE and is available with either a 2.0 or 3.0 litre turbocharged engine.
As evidenced in the video clip, the Toyota GR Supra makes for a good drift car. Thanks to its rear-wheel drive layout, powerful engines, compact dimensions and high power-to-weight ratio. Saito and Taniguchi however, heavily modify their cars for their specific applications. In other words, don’t try this at home, kids.
Other Happy Meal toys
The scaled-down Supra is part of a wider collection of cool little collectibles. Past offerings include a Nissan GT-R GT500, Mazda CX-5 police car, fire engine, ambulance, and even a “dinosaur carrier” lorry. Check out the full range in this video here:
