Renowned racer Ryan Turk decided to turn the fifth generation Toyota Supra into a hardcore drift car with a V10 racing engine.

Renowned drifter Ryan Turk decided to prepare a special Formula Supra drift car. The racer decided to take the fifth generation Toyota Supra under the hood of which a V10 racing engine will settle. The whole car creation process will be published on YouTube in 14 parts.

Recall that the standard Toyota Supra can be equipped with a “turbo four” or an inline six-cylinder engine. Such power units did not suit Turk and therefore he opted for the V10 from Judd (Engine Developments). The engine debuted on LMP1 racing cars in 1999, and then it was used in some formula cars.

The power plant is 750 hp, and it is able to spin up to 11,000 rpm. In the description for the video, Ryan Turk mentioned that for 10 years he wanted to build a car using this particular power unit. Unfortunately, more detailed data are not yet available, but if we take into account the scale of the proposed work, then we can assume that the Toyota Supra will face serious changes.
