Remember the Toyota 86 / Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] 458 mashup from drifter Ryan Tuerck? Well, he and the crew at Huddy MotorSports have given a little taste of what’s to come.
It may not be much to look at right now but it certainly sounds awesome. That’s probably due to the custom headers and front-mounted exhaust.
Gone is the Toyota 86’s 2.0-liter flat-4, replaced instead by the 4.5-liter V-8 of a Ferrari 458 Italia. That 4.5-liter V-8 is rated at 570 horsepower, almost triple what the stock Toyota coupe came with.
We can’t wait to see this beast on the track but before that Tuerck will showcase it at the 2016 SEMA show, assuming he’ll have it ready on time.
The annual tuning fest runs November 1-4 in Las Vegas. For our complete coverage on the show, stay glued to our dedicated hub.
