Smokey Nagata and the Legend of the Doubleton Run At a little past 4am, Smokey put the pedal to the metal and brought his heavily modified, 1,003bhp Toyota Supra and careened down the highway.
Kicking each one off with a massive, tire-warming burnout (hence the nickname, ‘Smokey’), Nagata tried his best to surpass the psychological limit of 200 mph but couldn’t. Be it that the hood almost became loose on one run or that the car ran lean on another, he simply couldn’t get there but he did reach 194 mph.
Not many people know who Smokey Nagata is, but mention the word twin-turbo V12 Supra and things start to make a little more sense. Sporting a Bruce Lee-like hairstyle and specs, he is the brains behind the Top Secret tuning garage in Japan.

222 mph Reportedly, the twin turbo V12 Top Secret Supra, driven by Smokey, achieved a top speed of 222 mph (358 km/h) at Nardo. While certainly a mind-numbing velocity, it falls just a tad short of the 248 mph (400 km/h) goal.

At around 4am on November 4, 1998, Kazuhiko ‘Smokey’ Nagata pulled off the hard shoulder into lane two of the A1(M) and came to a stop. With rain falling and the mercury hovering just above freezing, he pinned the throttle, dropped the clutch and performed a monstrous burnout in the middle of the road.

Smokey is mostly known for founding the Japanese company Top Secret which over the years has produced successful drift cars that have won various events all over the world. Besides drifting they made seriously high performance cars like the Supra in the video below that was shipped over to the UK.

Obviously, cars like Porsche 911 and BMW 3-Series are about as far from being JDM as possible, since they are produced by non-Japanese manufacturers, which don’t even have production facilities on Japanese territory. Some manufacturers have to adapt their cars to suit other markets, they wish to sell at.
