Toyota announced plans for 2010 SEMA tuning show, and it involves this, the Tacoma X-Runner RTR (stands for Ready To Race!). This part dragster – part pickup truck gets a 5.7-liter V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission out of the Tundra, boosted using a Supercharger Kit from Toyota Racing up to 504 horsepower and 550 lb.-ft. of torque.

The car is also fitted with TRD prototype mechanical limited slip differential, designed by Eaton, and modified wheels 10-inches wide in the rear and wrapped by 30×11.5×15-inch Goodyear Eagle Dragway Specials.  The front wheels are 4.5-inches wide and mounted to 28×4.5×15-inch Goodyear Eagle Front Runners.

Other features include lower ride height and custom exhausts, but the brakes were left untouched from the stock Tacoma X-Runner braking system, and vehicle traction aids are still functional, including ABS, Vehicle Stability Control and traction control.

And while the interior is totally stripped-out, the body remains pretty much standard and only gets silver and red paint scheme applied by Five-Axis was inspired by classic low cost but ready-to-race sports cars, including the late 1960s Dan Gurney Cougar XR7-G.

The number “95” on the doors signifies the first model year the Tacoma nameplate was sold in the U.S.  The Tundra i-Force engine badge was painted on the front fenders to signify the upgraded power plant and is in the same location it would be found on the current Tundra.  In classic hot rod style, the hood is adorned with “504 HP” graphics signifying the SAE verified horsepower.  Also on the hood, and unique to this build, is a TRD Supercharger graphic featuring a tornado, signifying the forced induction.  The side rocker panels feature the X-Runner logo.
