Ever seen a NASCAR Cup Car that sounds like a Supra?
Highlighting the wildest car builds on the planet, the performance addicts at Hoonigan test their abilities on track as part of the ‘THIS vs. THAT’ YouTube series. As part of its newest upload, Hoonigan challenges Formula Drift Pro driver Dylan Hughes and his extremely unique 2010 NASCAR Cup Car to some friendly competition out at their private drag strip. While most traditional NASCAR race cars are equipped with roaring V8 engines, Dylan’s setup features an 850-horsepower 2JZ swap from a Toyota Supra. Viewed as an iconic powertrain in the eyes of any automotive enthusiast, the 3.0L Turbocharged Inline-6 is managed by a proper 4-speed manual transmission.
Taking on the Frankenstein NASCAR is Hoonigan’s Chevrolet Corvette C8, which makes over 490 horsepower from a 6.2L Naturally-Aspirated V8. Despite a significant difference in both weight and forced induction, the race proves to be closer than expected by the Hoonigan team. Watch the Supra-powered NASCAR take on Hoonigan’s C8 Corvette in a three-round race by clicking on the video link above. No matter the winner, everyone watching is sure to enjoy the sound of turbo flutters and rev-tacking burnouts.
