Toyota built a 600-horsepower C-HR for SEMA and it's gloriousWe've always liked the look of the little C-HR. Now DG Spec and Toyota have added speed and suspension for a seriously quick subcompact crossover.
Toyota is putting the crazy in its subcompact crossover, the C-HR, here at SEMA, showing us two concepts that are equally different and equally awesome. First up is a 600 horsepower C-HR. I know it sounds crazy, but somehow, the folks DG-Spec were able to get a 0 to 60 time of 2.9 seconds. Out of a 2.4 liter incredibly turbo charged 4 cylinder engine. How did they do it? I don't know. Now it boasts a five speed manual transmission, but it's still just front wheel drive. Still it's beating cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 and the Nissan Nismo GTR around the 2.5 mile big track over at Willow Spring. Now are we gonna see this in production? I mean, probably not. But hopefully some of this reasearch and development is going to trickle on down to that Supra that we're all waiting for. Right, right, right? It's gonna happen? But it's not all fast, fast, fast at the Toyota booth, there is also some super cool with the CHR beat box. It's like a drum machine on wheels So for all you air drummers out there this CHR has got a few points that will do a drum beat. So. [MUSIC] Look at that, never had a lesson. Really good? [LAUGH] This is awesome. Again, will it come to production? I mean no, but it's really fun here at SEMA. [BLANK_AUDIO]
