When it comes to fiddling 80s Japanese icons, leave the body intact and go straight for the engine.
This AE86 is powered by the V8 engine from a 90s Lexus LS.The result is a pint-sized drifter that can also run a respectable straightline. Luckily, this video is all about drifting. The throaty roar created bythe 4.0-liter V8 sounds a bit odd coming out of the AE86 but once the tiresstart screeching the two sounds complement each other quite well. The Corollalooks to have an unmodified body (or at least no heavy mods were done),making it a red light sleeper.
We have seen this type of thing happen in another videobefore, but it’s not known whether or not these two cars are the same.
