Ryan Tuerck’s Formula Supra is on the dyno. And that Judd V10 is finally spinning to its proper dizzying heights. The result is amazing because the noise is intoxicating.
For a quick refresher, the engine sunk in the nose of this Supra is a Judd GV4. That is a 4.0-liter 10-cylinder motor designed for racing Le Mans Prototypes and some late-model Formula 1 cars. And this one here is in a Supra. It climbs to 11,000 rpm and it screams the entire way there. Tuerck says the dyno test on this one reveals around 630 horsepower at the wheels. And a look at Judd’s own website says the rebuild interval is 3,000 kilometers. Yes, it is going to be expensive to run this insane engine. But it’s going to sound good every time it’s bolted together and screaming along in that excellently built machine.
