It feels right that this carbon-kevlar bodied Toyota 86, the one with a hood bulge large enough to pass for a horn, absolutely tears up a road course.

This is HGK’s new build, a nice application of the Latvian shop’s ethos that has been used on BMWs and Corvettes before.

Take off the body and replace as much of it as possible with carbon-kevlar, and also take out whatever engine had been in there before and put in one of the loudest, most responsive naturally-aspirated V8s in the world.

Sounds good, right?
