Ferrari-Powered Toyota 86
The Toyota 86 is already a highly regarded sports car around the world, but one driver thinks it could use a bit more power. Meet Ryan Tuerck, a professional drifting driver, and his seemingly crazy plan. Tuerck, unsatisfied with the sports car’s motor, is foregoing formalities and has put a Ferrari engine under the hood.
The Ferrari F136 V8 engine is stock in the Ferrari 458 Speciale and puts out nearly 600 hp. With several best engine awards under its belt, Tuerck clearly isn’t playing around.
The Toyota 86 is also known as the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S depending on what market you’re in. All three models will have the same build, including the engine. A Ferrari-powered Toyota 86 isn’t something that has ever been done before and we here at Dick Dyer Toyota can’t wait to see the end result!
Tuerck seems to be running into a few obstacles along his journey. For starters, the massive V8 engine is both taller and longer than the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In order to make room for the motor, the team had to cut the car down.
This Ferrari-powered Toyota 86 won’t be used for competitions, which means Tuerck can make any modifications he wants or needs to in order for this monster to run soundly. That’s good news and hopefully we’ll see this wild ride sooner rather than later.
