Ferrari-engined Toyota GT86

For all the talk of casual oversteer the standard GT86 just hasn’t the grunt to indulge in effortless sideways.


While some have looked to tuning and forced induction, serial specials builder and engine swapper Ryan Tuerck has solved the issue of inadequate performance in some style: by dropping in the flat plane-cranked Tipo 136 V8 from a Ferrari 458 Italia (562bhp and 398lb ft last time we checked). ‘Dropped’ would suggest a straightfroward process – the days of angle-grinding and bespoke exhaust and induction systems would suggest otherwise.
