Toyo Tires and Ac Milan Release their Fourth Collaboration Video, and It's Amazing

Toyo Tires and Ac Milan Release their Fourth Collaboration Video, and It’s Amazing

Reality meets animation; drifting meets football (soccer)

If you haven’t seen the first three videos put together in collaboration between Ac Milan and Toyo Tires, you’ve seriously missed out. We’ve added those down below so you can catch up, but before you do we need to tell you about the fourth collaboration titled: “Ac Milan in Japanimation.” It’s a completely different animal compared to the previous videos, this time staring four key players from not only AC Milan but Gamba Osaka as well. It was filmed in Japan and Italy, but that’s not the best part. The best part is that Toyo commissioned none other than Yoichi Takahashi, the creator of the very popular and long-running manga series, Captain Tsubasa.

As such, this video is a unique mix of reality and animation in the best way, with AC Milan players, Riccardo Montolivo, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, André Silva, Ricardo Rodríguez taking on Gamba Osaka players, Yasuhito Endo, Yasuyuki Konno, Shu Kurata, Hiroki Fujiharu. What starts out as a scene with Montolivo reading a manga, quickly turns into a showdown not only between the two teams but a Mercedes G63 (represented by AC Milan) and a Mercedes SL400 that’s represented by Gamba Osaka. While the players in natural and animation form battle it back and forth with a ball, the two Mercedes’, which are riding upon Toyo Proxes tires, take to the street in an awesome, mostly animated drift battle.

If you’re in for a bit of entertainment, check out the video below. You’ll be sure you did. If you haven’t see the videos that came before, we’ve added those down below too.

2011 Dodge Durango Heat by Toyo Tires

Toyo Tires will be bringing a whole fleet of vehicles to the SEMA Auto Show, featuring four customized machines that will be part of the headline act at the world’s biggest aftermarket auto event.

As part of their Ultimate Ride Sweepstakes, Toyo Tires will be bringing a tricked out 2011 Dodge Durango that will not only be in attendance, but will also be given away to a lucky winner.

The SEMA-bound Durango will be a Mineral Gray Metallic Heat Edition 4×4 that comes with plenty of tuning set-ups, including a new T-REX four=piece flat black mesh grille with a UFC logo on it. The Durango will also have a Magnaflow exhaust system, a custom Alpine Audio entertainment system courtesy of Mega Motorsports, a black leather upholstery with contrasting blue stitching from Roadwire, and a new set of 22" Savini Forged SV28c wheels wrapped around a set of Toyo Proxes ST II tires.

Performance modifications are still being kept under wraps. Nevertheless, this Durango will still carry a powerful 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower and 260 lb/ft of torque. Either way, you’re getting something that’s well worth your time.

So how do you win this one-of-a-kind Dodge Durango? All you need to do is attend the SEMA Auto Show and you will be given the opportunity to scan a QR code, making you eligible to win a piece of Durango awesomeness.

Rinspeed Xtreme Porsche Cayenne by Toyo Tires

Rinspeed Xtreme Porsche Cayenne by Toyo Tires

After we saw the Nissan GT-RR and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, Toyo revealed another vehicle that will be presented at the SEMA Show: the Rinspeed Xtreme Porsche Cayenne. The new vehicle will be fitted with Toyo (of course) Proxes SR II tires and will feature a new suspension kit in order to improve the stability of the SUV.

It doesn’t seem that there are any engine modifications. It would make sense if it this Cayenne just came for the Toyo Tire guys, but because Rinspeed is attached too, we were hoping for a cool scuba mod or at least a few more horses.
