Seeing this orange beast with its hood shut, you might be thinking there’s a huge V8 stuffed under there, but you’d be very wrong.
This muscly 1971 Holden Torana got injected with Japanese steroids and its classic body shell houses an inline six-cylinder 2JZ engine just like the Mk4 Toyota Supra. Being a drag racer, the engine got heavily modified, being able to put 1,600 hp at the flywheel.

Most of the car’s body is steel, but it has fiberglass fenders, doors and decklid, making it weight just 2,400 lb (1,089 kg). The striped-down interior features a full rollcage, custom-built dashboard, racing steering and shifter, racing harness and three racing bucket seats, with the left passenger seat being able to tilt and make room for the third occupant reach the rear seat.

Too bad we can’t see it running as the guys owning it rushed with some tests and the timing belt came off, ruining all the 24 valves.
