Supra

[Latin, Above; beyond.]

Yep, this build is definitely worthy of the word. It's above and beyond regular JZA80 tuning.

I think I would love to see someone do a DTM-styled build (with overfenders, louvers, big-spoiler, etc) based on something like a Chevrolet Lacetti, if only for the "did they really tune THAT?"

@Filip Technically, the engine in a Testa is a "180º V12" and not a true boxer, and this image shows why. Top is a boxer engine (think Subaru/Porsche), bottom is a "flat" or "180º" engine.

I wonder if this kind of event will exists when the oil runs out. Will people make crazy-ass electrics? Hydrogen-powered monsters?

Maybe. I hope they do, I like fast things :)

@hawi51 Yes. This has over twice the power, has more grip thanks to wearing big slick tyres instead of the "all-weather" Michelins used in FE, probably generates more downforce, and I don't think it's much heavier than a FE car.

"One thing that gets me about the negativity on V8 swaps is the lack of understanding of just how much work it actually takes to get it to work well. Before you even get to the headache that wiring and wiring looms can present, you need to consider chassis modifications to accept the engine, mounts for the motor itself, gearbox choice and the adaptation needed to the driveline to make it all fit and line up."

Maybe you could help with that? Why not have an educational article about the difficulties of doing a V8 swap? Show the readers WHY it's not easy. They get that it's a practical and reliable way to get power, but they may not get that's it's more complicated than

1) take old engine out 

2) put new engine in 

3) connect some tubes 

4) HORSEPOWER YAY!

" Sondre and his dad estimate this set-up to be making around 2000hp-plus. Yes, you read that right!

It’s street legal too, and other than a full cage and Sparco bucket seats, the original Granada Ghia interior is still all intact"

I think we need a new motto. Because Gatebil is not bad, but I think Because Scandinavia or Because Nordics is necessary for things like this. 2000hp street-legal car? Because Scandinavia!

"Which is when Ben happened upon quite possibly the best person in the world at that exact moment. She went by the name of ‘Agent Lillian’ and after a couple of tired English guys did a stupid dance (voluntarily I might add) and made her laugh, she upgraded our hastily reserved booking of a Ford Focus…To a Dodge RT Challenger! Did that just happen? Really? What, that one outside? I scanned my license and we collected the keys."
