VF Engineering VF620 Supercharged Widebody M3 to Compete in Bullrun July 9-15, 2011

VF Engineering VF620 Supercharged Widebody M3 to Compete in Bullrun July 9-15, 2011



After a grueling 3000+ mile run in Gold Rush Rally Adventure (http://autoeclectic.com/the-gold-rush-rally), VF Engineering's VF620 Supercharged Widebody M3 is ready for more, competing in this year's Bullrun Rally.

CYPRESS, CALIFORNIA – Mix seven days of exotic cars running cross country on high octane fuel, famous celebrities and unforgettable parties -- you have Bullrun. This year, Toyo Tires is competing in that rolling festival which blends horsepower with the luxury lifestyle. Bullrun begins under the lights of Las Vegas on July 9, and screeches to a stop July 15, on the shores of Miami with stops in popular US cities along the way. Warning to paparazzi – you’ll be left in their dust if you try to follow!

The Team Toyo entry is a wicked looking 2008 BMW M3 constructed and provided by VF Engineering located in Anaheim, California (www.vf-engineering.com.) This one-off, wide body creation features a VF Engineering supercharged engine producing a massive 620-horsepower. Providing ground control for this beast will be 20-inch Toyo Proxes T1R tires in sizes 275/30ZR20 (front) and 345/25ZR20 (rear). Tested and proven on Germany’s famed Nürburgring, this ultra high performance summer tire delivers precision handling and braking performance for high-end sport sedans and coupes.

Team Toyo celebrities taking turns behind the wheel of the VF Engineering M3 will include: actress Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica, UFC Lightweight Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, UFC Bantamweight Miguel Torres, Strikeforce Heavyweight Josh Barnett and former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard.

Also competing is Team Toyo Off-Road legend Robby Gordon in a brand new, Toyo tires-equipped 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

Fans will have an exclusive, inside look at www.twitter.com/toyotires and www.facebook.com/toyotires as Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports for Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp., serves as co-driver while providing live Tweets and Facebook posts. european auto source will also be providing updates on twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/euroautosource and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/europe...2712204?v=wall.

Bullrun and the host of celebrities will also be featured on an MTV series later in the year.

“Bullrun reflects our company philosophy of ‘Driven to Perform’ and we are excited to compete in this prestigious lifestyle event,” said Amy Coleman, senior director of marketing, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. “We encourage fans to experience this celebrity-filled rally and stay in touch with us and our celebrity drivers through the Toyo Tires Facebook and Twitter pages.”
