Engine swaps are nothing new. Enthusiasts try and stuff anything and everything that fits into their cars to get more bang, from massive American V8s to turbocharged six-cylinders.
Tuerck revealed his plans to create his ultimate 86 via a YouTube teaser video showing a bare 86 chassis being mated with the Ferrari V8 for the first time.
We have no details on the engine’s output for now, but the same unit used in the Ferrari 458 Speciale churns out 445kW. That’s an impressive figure in a lightweight Japanese sports car anyway you look.
We can’t wait for Tuerck’s new 86 to be unleashed but in the meantime, enjoy this video preview of the project.
