The second generation Mk2 Toyota Supra was a series of higher trim levels for the Toyota Celica hatchback, although it was redesigned with more distinctive styling and chassis tuning by Lotus to emphasize its upmarket status. It was available in the North American market as a L-Type (luxury-type) and P-Type model (performance-type), with the latter being offered with a 160 hp engine and wider fenders.
The Mk2 model was offered for the 1982 model year up to 1986 and was replaced by the Mk3 model.
The Celica Supra is based on a front-engine, rear-wheel drive architecture and equipped with four-wheel disc brakes as well as semi-trailing arm rear suspension that improves handling characteristics over the live rear axle by the Celica.
The Celica Supra is powered by a dual overhead camshaft engine with hydraulic valve lifters and rocker arms that eliminate the need for valve clearance maintenance, a first for automobiles according to Toyota. The engine produces 160 hp (119 kW) and 163 ft·lb (221 N·m) of torque and allows the car to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in ca 8 seconds.
