NATS Urus 86 Is A Real Toyota 86-Based Lamborghini Urus Pickup Truck

Even though the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon will host a lot of heavily customized cars, we have a feeling this Toyota 86-based Lamborghini Urus pickup will stand out a great deal.

Responsible for this street-legal machine, which for now, we only see in this sketch that the company shared with us, are the talented folks over at Nihon Automobile College (NATS).

Built on the latest Toyota 86, it’s body has been transformed to include a Lamborghini Urus-inspired design and a truck bed behind the front seats, which has been stretched out considerably so as to match the Lambo SUV front end aesthetic.

We also spot custom side skirts and a set of FUEL OFFROAD wheels which measure 20-inches front and rear, and are reportedly wrapped in NITTO TERRAGRAPPLER 265/50/R20 rubber.

Unlike a real Lamborghini Urus, this so-called ‘Super Sports Pickup Truck’ is powered by a modified version of the Toyota 86’s (and Subaru BRZ’s) 2.0-liter unit with 270 PS (266 HP) and 304 Nm (224 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal. It’s also fitted with a TRUST GReddy T517Z Turbo Kit. Of course, it pales in comparison to the Urus’ 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine, which produces 650 PS (641 HP) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque.

Either way, we can’t wait to feast our eyes on the real-life NATS Urus 86 at the Tokyo salon that runs from January 11 through 13, 2019.

    It works….. In the sketch at least….

    • MarketAndChurch

      It looks kinda cool. It doesn’t actually need an open pickup bed though, a closed trunk would be fine.

      • roy

        Absolutely

    What a waste of time, effort and ink. Not even worthy of an article, please, how STUP!D are you!

    • Perry F. Bruns

      Disregard. Apparently mentioning the name of the publication activates the filter.

    • Perry F. Bruns

      If there’s ink on your screen, I don’t think it’s the editors’ fault. 😉

    No, hell no.

    Fresh and unique

  • Bill Adams

    I just bought an 86. I don’t think there’s room for a useful pickup bed. I’d rather see the area covered as in a crossover so stuff doesn’t get wet.

    LMAO WHAT? Toyota 86 + URUS = pickup?

  • Fabián Montiel

    Why, just why? Who thought this was a good idea? Why not just leave it as a BRZ pickup and call it a Brat?
