Pro drifter Ryan Tuerck is building a what he calls a JDM supercar. It is a Ferrari-powered Toyota GT86 which should be quite a handful.
Donut Media has released a teaser video of the insane build which involves plonking a 4.5-liter V8 from a Ferrari 458 into a Toyota GT86. We can’t wait to find out more.
The short teaser reveals a completely stripped down GT86 monocoque. Soon, it will receive a 562 hp Ferrari V8, completely transforming the JDM machine.
The Ferrari V8 was designed for a mid-engine supercar. It will be interesting to see how the motor fits in the tiny engine bay of the GT86. The builders will probably use Ferrari’s 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Major work will also go into the setting up the suspension as the front-mounted V8 would shift the center of mass on the GT86.
Ryan Tuerck is not new to such crazy builds though. His current car is a twin-turbo 2JZ swapped Scion FRS. For updates on the latest build keep watching this space.
