Burnt Lambo Huracan lives again with a transplanted 1,000hp V8TT
Fitting the ten-cylinder, naturally aspirated mill of the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 with dual turbine chargers sounds like a natural thing to do, and tuners have been doing it a lot lately. Now, cutting it out and stuffing a twin-turbo V8 in its place is much more challenging. And why would do that, anyway?
One valid scenario is when your beloved Huracan gets into an accident and ends up with partially burned drivetrain – just like this one. Currently owned by Chris Steinbacher, famous anchor of B is for Build, it underwent a complete restoration and engine swap.
We have to admit, the outcome exceeded our boldest expectations. Note the all-new bespoke body kit that looks in no way inferior to the latest LB-Silhouette WORKS GT. The kit alone makes it a truly unique vehicle probably worth buying for your collection.
A mighty LQ4 LS V8 with seven liters of displacement uses giant dual turbochargers to churn out 1,000+ horsepower (745+ kilowatts). The gear is six-speed manual, taken from an older Audi R8.
