Mental Toyota-Ferrari Hybrid Is A Manic Tyre Shredding Drift Machine

Written By:

What happens when professional drifter Ryan Tuerck goes to a race track and takes his bespoke Toyota GT4586 drifting. The answer is quite simple: tyres screaming in agony as they are forcibly converted into smoke.

The GT4586 is the result of a Toyota GT86 getting a heart transplant in the form of a 4.5-litre V8 engine from a Ferrari 458.

The mental Ferrari V8 replaces the 4-cylinder engine Subaru boxer engine found under the hood of Toyota's only sports car currently on sale.

The engine kicks out 570bhp and 540Nm of torque and revs up to 9,000rpm and creates an insane howl when the loud pedal is pressed in anger.

When combined with the Toyota GT86's lightweight body, the manic engine's power forces the tiny Toyota sports car to become an instant oversteer loving machine.

Now sit back, plug in some headphones and enjoy the sounds and sights as this Toyota-Ferrari Frankenstein mashup belts out its greatest hits.
