Watch a mad genius at work.
A few months ago we learned of a project car so epic that it’ll likely spawn several copycats. That’s not a bad thing mind you, but we bet the folks at Ferrari HQ in Maranello won’t like it one bit. That’s because it involves swapping out the marvelous naturally aspirated 4.5-liter V8 from the Ferrari 458 Italia and placing it under the hood of a Toyota GT86. Pro drifter Ryan Tuerck may soon be public enemy number one for Ferrari because he’s a mad genius.
The guy has just ignited his newly V8-powered GT86, now called the GT-486, and it sounds magnificent. And yes, it shoots fireballs. Of course the coupe also requires a ton of modifications to its body and structure in order to handle all of the extra power.
After all, a stock GT86 has 200 hp compared to the 458’s 570. The car still isn’t done being built yet and we can’t wait to see the end result. Like we said, this is going to be epic.
