Ekanoo Racing, a drag racing team from Bahrain, has produced a monster Toyota 86 which is now, officially, the world’s fastest car in its drag-racing class. The mental 86 was recently clocked at 399 km/h on a strip in Bahrain, reaching that speed from standstill in under 5.8 seconds.

Completely misinterpreting Toyota’s ideas of the 86 being a driver’s humble dream drifter, the drag racers did away with the car’s original 2.0 litre flat-four, and fitted in a souped-up 3.0 litre six-cylinder 2JZ engine from a Toyota Supra instead.

Piling on the power and custom modifications, the GT86 you see here has been completely redesigned to be all it can be on a drag strip. Ekanoo hasn’t revealed too many specifics of its latest racer just yet, but as you can tell, it’s very, very quick.
