When we think of tuners and enthusiasts shoehorning engines into other vehicles, the thought of Honda‘s F20C S2000 powerplant making its way into a Toyota Pickup isn’t exactly on our list… at all.

Honda’s high-revving 2.0L naturally aspirated engine found in the original S2000s is one of the world’s most potent and beloved engines and many enthusiasts have utilized it in other vehicles. But seeing it in a Toyota Pickup is totally awesome and totally novel. The Pickup was spotted out in Odaiba in Japan at a Truck Masters show, and along with its body dropped to the ground it features a nice set of Advan Model 5 wheels with big brakes peeking behind the classic wheels.

We’ll be the first to admit, we’re really curious on how it drives and performs.
