Ferrari-Powered Toyota GT86 Has A Code-Brown Moment During Epic Shooting

This one-of-a-kind drift build came really close to call it a day during a film shooting on a twisty road in Portland.

Ryan Tuerck’s Ferrari-powered Toyota GT86 is perhaps the most crazy engine swap in the drift community and certainly the only one of its kind in the whole world.

Things got a little scary during the first shoot of the day, with Tuerck picking a bad line on the transfer, forcing the infamous GT456 to give a little kiss to the mountain and wound one of its track rods.

Fortunately the damage was too small to stop the crew from shooting; with the car fixed and Ryan hungry for some corners, this short drift film continued shooting, giving us one of the most satisfying hooning clips of the year filled with angry Ferrari noises.

Did we mention they’re using an actual Ferrari 458 as a camera car? Prepare for some really satisfying drifting action with one of the most intriguing cars on the planet being driven by one crazy driver.

    i love how they didnt make it as a “perfect run”….. unlike some flashy block.

    • David mcCreery

      Flashy Block also does a lot more difficult driving than this. Pretty sure he could make it up the run without plowing the hill on the side of the road.

      I don’t know if you’re replying and keep deleting your comment because I keep getting notifications and seeing a reply from you. In those “deleted” replies, you mention shakedown and Catalunya. Shakedown was a single lane wide dirt road covered by trees, not a pristine, empty, two lane PNW mountain road. While Catalunya was admittedly a screw up, it was still in competition, not just creating a YouTube video . . . they BOTH were in competition; slightly higher stakes. I’m no Ken Block fan boy, but implying that this video is in any way on the same level of complexity (or that the driver has anywhere near the talent) of what Ken Block does is way off base. Not apples-to-apples, dude.

        yeah, i deleted it, i decided to enjoy the weekend and avoid the hassle… however i still appreciate them for keeping it in video instead of cut it out.

        • David mcCreery

          . . . I’ve gotten four separate emails about responses from you, all of them different. This is the first one that stayed. Sounds like writing replies then deleting them over and over is more of a hassle than just having a different opinion — there’s no harm in disagreeing. Commit, man!
