Automobile craftsmen have equipped the Italian supercar Lamborghini Huracan with a powerful American LS V8 twin turbo engine. To test the capabilities of the resulting car, they went to an old abandoned runway.

Created by the team from the YouTube channel “B is for Build”, this Huracan is powered by an LS V8 engine made by the American concern GM – and not just an old LS, but a specially created one equipped with a pair of turbochargers. This car was presented at the SEMA tuning show last year and it must be said that this is an absolutely insane project.

The creators of this car say that the original Lamborghini Huracan was bought first, which suffered serious engine damage – a set of twin turbochargers exploded.

When the original V10 was destroyed, the team was left to either try to find a used Huracan engine or replace the engine instead. As you can see, they chose the latter.

The goal is for the car to end up with 1,500 horsepower, but actually getting that number has proven difficult. Work on the custom Huracan continues, and it was recently taken to the airport runway to have some fun and see what it can do.

When initially testing the car in this posted video, the team ran into some throttle problems that prevent the engine from smoothly adjusting power. Once the problem is resolved, the car starts to perform very well during a series of autocross tests and some stand-up races.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the classic Rover Mini with an engine from a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle. AMT Machine Shops has decided to seriously change the classic city car Rover Mini. Now it is equipped with a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle engine, which is installed between the axles of the machine. Judging by the posted video, the guys got a very funny buzzing car.
