Toyota C-HR R-Tuned with a turbo 2AZ inline-four

Toyota debuted their C-HR R-Tuned race car at SEMA 2017. Power comes from a built 2.4 L 2AZ-FE inline-four with forged internals that produces 600 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque on 23 psi of boost. Behind the engine sits a Toyota E-series five-speed manual transmission with treated gears connected to a OS Giken Super Lock LSD. The crossover SUV rides on DG-Spec/Motion Control suspension with triple-adjustable coilovers and stops with Brembo four-piston disc brakes. The upgraded components produce some great performance stats such as 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, 1.2 g of braking force, and 1.7 g of lateral acceleration. The SUV lapped Willow Springs in 1:25.22.
