Toyota Pickup Tows Space Shuttle Endeavour

Toyota Pickup Tows Space Shuttle Endeavour

On the 12th October 2012 a standard half-ton Toyota Tundra pickup towed the 145-ton Space Shuttle Endeavour across LA’s 405 freeway on its way to the California Science Centre.

The Toyota Tundra in question is the Crewmax 4×4 which is powered by a iForce 5.4L V8 engine with 284kW on tap.

This reminds me of the Volkswagen Touareg 5.0L V10 TDI (230kW) which towed a 155-ton Boeing 747 back in 2007. You can also watch that video below.
