Ryan Tuerck’s Ferrari 458-Powered Toyota 86 Is The Ultimate Street Car

Not only is Ryan Tuerck’s Ferrari 458-powered Toyota 86 one of the craziest in the world but it is actually a useable street car. Kind of.

To show how the drifting monster performs the mundane tasks of everyday life, Tuerck headed out with Donut Media for a day in the GT4586 around his home town and it must be said, the race car does a valiant job.

Not only does it turn the heads of every single local, it also attracted the attention of local police. Fittingly, they too are fans of the car even giving Tuerck the go-ahead to open up the throttle and let them hear the beautiful howl of the 4.5-liter V8.

The car won’t be used in Formula D competition but if we keep getting videos like this, we won’t be upset in the slightest.

    The ultimate bastard maybe…

    Still feels wrong to me. I know it is cool and everything, yet a Ferrari engine shouldn’t be in a GT86.

    Even though they are always trying to hide it in videos, the much wider front axle compared to narrow rear part is still ugly. So not only there are no real benefits from powertrain point of view, it also ruins the design. Plus that fender accident was well deserved. Rear axle was jumping during drifting because they tried to move rear wheels as much out of the body as possible probably without constructing whole new custom axle (otherwise they could at least make it the same width as front axle) so the unsprung wheel weight is located on a nice long axle arm allowing it to move crazily and destroy that wrongly designed fenders. The car is a joke…

    It is such a shame no other engine besides 458 would fit in GT86 engine bay….

    spend that 99.9(% of effort on engineering 0.01% of aesthetics…Looks like hammered dog shit.

    I’m not sure this can even be considered safe to drive on public roads with… Imperfections, let alone be “ultimate”…
