What you looking here is perhaps the world’s most extreme or powerful Toyota GT86 in the world. Built by Japanese motorsport parts supplier Racing Studio-R (RS-R), this machine is currently in development to participate in 2013’s Formula D Asia drifting championship.
The standard 197BHP 2.0L engine which powered the stock GT86 was taken out and replaced with a rather huge 5.7L V8 engine taken from Toyota Camry NASCAR engine, easily producing 800BHP on power. As you can see this humongous engine is too huge for GT86’s engine bay where the air intake has to be placed outside the engine hood. The engine does include TRD parts and custom cooling and fuel systems. On the exterior department, modifications such as full aero kit and carbon fibre body panels including the bootlid and roof, were made.
Two extremely modified units of the Toyota GT86 will be prepared for drivers Max Orido and Fredric Aasbø. This machine should be their answer to stop current Formula Drift Asia’s champion, Daigo Saito, from dominating this year. The duo will expect to debut their new GT86 in the first round of Formula Drift Asia in Australia this coming April.
