StreetFX WTF86 Gives Toyota 86 The Engine It Deserves

StreetFX WTF86 Gives Toyota 86 The Engine It Deserves
I really, reaaaally want this awesome GT86 known as the WTF86. The car started life as a Toyota 86 (aka Scion FR-S aka Subaru BR-Z) with a Subaru sourced flat four Boxer engine. With the significant help of Australian tuner StreetFX, the car has given up that puny little four in favor of a massive 4.1L HKS GT1000 R35 GTR engine from Nissan.

Liberty Walk Body Kit Adds Japanese Style to Italian Exotic
I don’t typically go for body kits on cars; I think they mostly look cheap and tacky. That isn’t the case with the new body kit available for the now retired Ferrari 360 and F430 from a Japanese firm called LB Performance (better known as Liberty Walk).

Crazy Modded Volvo S60 T5 Makes Some Swede Sounds

Crazy Modded Volvo S60 T5 Makes Some Swede Sounds
My parents had a Volvo station wagon when I was in high school. Battleship gray, with a manual transmission. I drove that thing like it was a sports car. Or as I imagined it, like the heavily modified S60 T5 that Matt Farah takes for a spin on Encinal Canyon Road above Malibu in this video from The Smoking Tire.

Vaydor Kit Converts Infiniti G35 into Exotic
Not to be confused with the Star Wars villain with a similar sounding name, Vaydor produces a truly unique body kit which takes old Infiniti G35s and converts them into faux-exotic cars. The finished car looks pretty amazing, with European supercar styling, but without the pricetag.

Project Binky: Building a Speedy 4WD Austin MINI

Project Binky: Building a Speedy 4WD Austin MINI
Bad Obsession Motorsport has decided it would be a good idea to build the fastest four-wheel drive Austin MINI ever by stuffing the engine from a Toyota Celica GT4 under the hood. Beginning with a 1980 Austin MINI 1000, which would have produced 40 horsepower when it came off the assembly line, the team hopes to mate it with a 200 horsepower Celica ST185 GT4.

The Ferrari 412 Pickup Truck
We’ve seen some unusual pickup truck conversions over the years, but we can honestly say this is the first time we’ve ever seen a Ferrari pickup truck. Sure, it’s not like the Ferrari 412 was the most exotic or powerful car the Italian automaker ever made, but still, it is a Ferrari.
