Toyota 86 With 700HP Supra Engine Attacks The Track Sideways

The drifting ability of the Toyota 86 has always been one of the reasons the compact sports coupe is a favorite of car enthusiasts, so we couldn’t let this particular example slip by.

Before checking it out in action going sideways at a track in Germany, let’s see what makes it so special.

We’ll start with the heart transplant, which saw the stock naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-four being exchanged for a turbocharged engine from a Toyota Supra, which has been tuned to deliver 700 HP.

Of course, such a big project requires other work, from a new gearbox to suspension and brake upgrades. With drifting being its main purpose, this Toyota 86 is equipped with a hydraulic handbrake, too.

The cabin has been stripped down to the basics and features a new digital instrument cluster to provide the driver with the required data, quick-release steering wheel, new buttons mounted on the dashboard, bucket seats and a carbon fiber roll cage.

This Toyota 86 is the work of MPS Engineering, which have given it a more menacing stance as well, as highlighted by the carbon fiber hood with a quick release system, wider fenders with visible bolts on all four corners, new front apron and a giant wing at the back.

Looking on the tuner’s website reveals different performance upgrades for the 86 and its Subaru twin, the BRZ. The most extreme (apart from an engine switch, that is) lifts the output of the stock engine to over 500PS (493hp / 368kW) by turbocharging it and upgrading its internals.

    I don’t get the drift scene. I realize it takes a lot of skill to do right but just don’t see the draw. On another note that 86 would have been an awesome sleeper with that powertrain combo.

  • Earl Scheib

    That’s the engine it should have had originally from the factory! Anything less = Toyota fail.

    Needs more powah!

    Finally….a Toyota 86 that I would buy! 700 hp is prefect too! Toyota said previously that a turbocharger would not fit in the 86. Each new refresh, they marketed in their PR piece an increase in horsepower too. It turn out to be 5 horsepower! LOL!😜

    and Toyota looked at this and said, no no no… this car is so much better with just a N/A 4 cylinder :/ LOL
