This Toyota Supra has a V10 Formula 1 engine

Ryan Tuerck's latest creation takes it up to another level above his Ferrari-powered Toyota 86.

1y ago

If Ryan Tuerck's name rings a bell for you, you'll no doubt be well aware that the professional drifter is very ambitious and imaginative when it comes to an engine-swap project.

Having previously managed to famously cram the 4.5-litre V8 out of a Ferrari 458 into a Toyota GT86, Tuerck has certainly stepped it up to the next level with this latest project.

Starting out with a brand new Toyota Supra, rather than merely cramming an exotic road car engine under its bonnet like last time, Tuerck is instead opting to fit in a truly unique Judd 'GV4' 4.0-litre V10 that has its roots in Formula 1 racing.

Aiming to create what he would define as "the ultimate Supra," a glance over the specs makes it clear why Tuerck would want to choose this engine. Reduction gear-driven, rather than using belts like most road car engines, the V10 produces a whopping 750hp despite being naturally aspirated and is able to rev to an impressive 11,000rpm.

Furthermore, this engine's racing pedigree is firmly cemented by the fact it was the same engine that helped a Dallara SP1 claim victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona back in 2002, and although Tuerck notes that the A90 Supra in its standard form "is phenomenal to drive, and it is probably the first car I've ever got that I'm actually going to be disappointed about taking apart and turning into a racecar," it's safe to say that this V10 ought to turn it into something even more interesting than the BMW-engined stock car already is.

Tuerck is going to be documenting the build on his YouTube channel with fortnightly updates on Sundays, and it's safe to say this is going to be one to keep an eye on!

For now though, let us know...
