When it comes down to finding the right source of power to get the job done, whether that job be making tons of power with efficiency, coming up with the right combination for a budget build, or just being an all-out cool swap, there are plenty of options to go with.

Instead of going with a conventional Japanese engine or even some sort of American v8 swap, these guys have taken it upon themselves to take a new Toyota AE86 and cram a Ferrari engine in it. The result was definitely something that will make you do a double-take.
Check out the video below that shows the results of such a swap as it gets fired up and shoots flames out of the exhaust. Something like this feels like it could be an inspiration to others who are looking to drum up something that’s one of a kind for themselves.
