Watch Drifter Ryan Tuerck Crash his Ferrari-Powered GT86!
We've seen our fair share of ridiculously awesome engine swaps. From four-rotor RX-7s to the screaming naturally aspirated V-10 heart of an E60 BMW M5 dropped into the rear of a Lotus Exige.
However, none have truly captivated us as much as Formula D driver Ryan Tuerck's Ferrari 458-powered Toyota GT86. And now, after months of waiting, we're finally getting to see what it does best: slay tires--but only after the car is fixed following a first-take crash.
According to Tuerck and Donut Media, the guys in charge of shooting the short video, on the first run of the day, right when Tuerck was just setting up his lines, he caught the inside edge of the road and got pulled into the side of the Portland mountain they were shooting on. You can see the moment in the video where Tuerck's GT4586 clips the corner, the right wheel gets pulled in, and the entire car careens into the mountain. Luckily, Tuerck was fine, and after some lightning-fast repairs, the Ferrari-powered drift car was back and ready to make smoke and shoot flames up the mountain.
Just make sure you have the volume all the way up when you watch it, as that naturally aspirated, straight-exhaust Ferrari V-8 needs to be heard. Check it out.
