Toyota Tundra Diesel Dually Project Truck back again at SEMA

Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2008

The only street legal bike ever made is the Ducati Desmosedici RR. The ultimate track day bike demands the ultimate transport; that's where the Toyota 2009 Tundra Ducati Desmosedici transporter comes in handy.The Tundra/Ducati Transporter is made on a Tundra CrewMax, which has been improved to accommodate a 6.5-inch bed.

The transporter is thematically connected to the bike, integrating Ducati Corse style together with innovative materials and implementation to generate synergies for two companies totally passionate with quality and performance.

Additional highlights include major bed designs such as flip up bedsides, a mechanized loading ramp by Rampage, incorporated tool and spares storage, and popup solar panels for secondary power.

Performance is totally improved through the full catalog of TRD Performance components such as supercharger, exhaust, intake, suspension and brakes.The interior designed by Fast Ed's Interiors merges innovative style with Italian elegance.

The Tundra light duty pickup's stock engine, which is at the heart of the vehicle, was replaced with a medium duty diesel powerplant removed from a 35,000-pound commercial truck. The 8.0-liter inline six-cylinder high-torque engine, made by Toyota affiliate Hino, is coupled with an Eaton five-speed manual transmission and a Hino back end.

Toyota Motorsports Technical Group modified the Tundra a great deal to give space for the beefed-up driveline.Numerous custom exterior treatments point to the powerful muscle under the hood. Apparent examples consist of huge forged aluminum alloy 22.5-inch wheels custom built by Alcoa, a diamond plate-lined bed, a charcoal gray metallic flat paint finish and a fifth-wheel hitch rated at 24,000 pounds.

The brawny theme on the outside changes considerably to that of luxury and comfort on the inside with hand-crafted ginger leather seats, suede pillars and headliner and dual rear driver’s chairs with individual DVD entertainment systems.
