Toyota Built A 2,000 Horsepower, 220 MPH Land Cruiser For SEMA

SEMA 2016

Meet the new Toyota Land "Speed" Cruiser.

The Toyota Land Cruiser is an amazing vehicle, but it doesn't really do much to turn heads. If you are spending over $83,000 on a car, you may be looking for something that garners more attention than the dependable, but somewhat boring, Land Cruiser. SEMA is the type of show where manufacturers can completely break the boundaries of what is considered "widely marketable to consumers." That is why Toyota has created what it calls the Land Speed Cruiser, which has 2,000 horsepower and a 220 MPH top speed.

The Land Speed Cruiser is not built to do any sort of off-roading. The SUV has been slammed, but still packs its original 3UR-FE 5.7-liter V8. Toyota added two volleyball-sized Garrett turbochargers to bring output up to an insane 2,000 hp.

The Land Speed Cruiser looks to be fitted with racing harnesses and a roll cage, so it has pretty much lost all of its functionality as an SUV. And no, Toyota will definitely not be putting this thing into production. Still, the Land Speed Cruiser is an interesting glimpse of what Toyota can do when it decides to be a bit silly. This may be the company that gave us models like the Camry and the Prius, but the Land Speed Cruiser shows us that Toyota does still have some fun left in it.
