When we first saw photos of this radial airplane engine being mounted in a Toyota MR2 we questioned whether they were real. This unbelievable video proves not only was it not a hoax, the 1940s era 160 hp airplane engine is in the small Toyota and running (very rich).

We don't know much about the setup besides the fact it is equipped with a MegaSquirt electronic fuel injection system and an awesome exhaust system. Not surprisingly, upon completion this radial MR2 will be heading for a 24 hours of Lemons race where it is sure to cause plenty of head scratching and hearing impairment.
