The Guy Ferrari Is Going To Hate Is Back With His 458-Swapped Toyota GT86

Video

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.
