Reviews of the new Toyota GR Supra have barely been out but someone has already swapped the new Supra’s BMW engine for the legendary 2JZ engine found in the MK4 Supra.

It was only a matter of time and no, there is no prize for guessing which country did it first. If you haven't guessed it, its Japan's Daigo Saito. A professional drifter known for his spectacular drift cars, Saito has since built a crazy Lamborghini Murcielago and a Ferrari 599 GTB for his drifting pleasure.

Details are scarce for the moment but the photos he uploaded on social media allows us to see that he added an additional rear-mounted radiator for extra cooling capacity. Of course, it is fully stripped out for maximum weight savings and it looks like it will be getting some really large fenders to cover those wide tyres.

Interestingly, Saito mentioned that the new Supra is a good base for a drift car as it has a short wheelbase and compact body, allowing it be easy to control during drifts. He also reckoned it would be easier and cheaper to run too.

Said to produce around 800bhp, the 2JZ-GTE equipped A90 GR Supra took just 42 days to develop and build and is set to make its first public appearance on 23rd March in Tokyo at the D1 Grand Prix All-Star Shoot Out.

  • Netizens bash roads.sg for misleading caption of a BMW facing oncoming traffic on expressway

    Sometimes we encounter mind-boggling sights on the road that leave us scratching our heads. What happened and how did it get there? Recently we spotted yet another such scene circulating on one of our favourite pages: The page had captioned it "You can't park there, Sir." You can watch the video here: 298360005_784581842681174_4396976411540370995_n.mp4 Huh? What the! How can? Immediately, we thought that the car had deliberately parked itself there in the mid

    A couple in a Honda Vezel engage in some light foreplay while driving on the expressway

    TL;DR – A couple in a Honda Vezel has been caught on video necking and kissing while driving on the road.   Couples need to do what couples need to do. I certainly have no issue with couples kissing or showing public displays of affection out in the open. But, if it poses as a potential road hazard and endangers other people, that’s where lines should be drawn. Watch the 39-second video here: I thought it was something else Initially, I thought the silhouette on

    Cam lorry's late reaction to a reckless Lexus RX300's e-brake causes it to rear-end the SUV

    A pet peeve of mine is when commercial vehicles (Eg. Vans, lorries, tipper trucks) travel on lane 2 of the expressway.  And I am certain this is a pet peeve of many drivers in Singapore.  Due to the speed limit imposed on these vehicles, they often cause a slow down in the lane they are travelling in (assuming traffic is clear and they are driving under the speed limit).  However, just because they are commercial vehicles, does it give them the right for passenger vehicles to "bul
