The Fast & Furious franchise has been known for its outlandish vehicles, especially the Toyota Supra that late actor Paul Walker made famous, and that has inspired custom vehicle mashups, like this one. The last place you’d probably expect a Toyota Supra 3.0L inline-six 2JZ-GTE turbo engine is in a “hi-riser,” or in other words, a traditional, full-size, body on frame, V8 powered, rear wheel drive American-built sedan modified by significantly increasing the ground clearance. This 1973 Chevrolet Impala by an auto enthusiast named Craig may look normal at first glance, but it’s much more than meets the eye. Read more for a video showing why.
“If seeing the engine is a shock, then to hear it is to experience true cognitive dissonance. The video shows several full-power launches, with the brown Impala hard top squatting back on its haunches, the turbos spooling up, and that inline-six screaming to the redline. It almost sounds like someone dubbed the engine audio from a drag-built Toyota Supra over the clip. But fear not—the 2JZ donk is real, and it looks quick,” according to The Drive.
