What would you do if you blew the engine of your Ferrari 360 GT during a track day? While most Ferrari owners would probably go for an expensive engine rebuild after the tears subsided, one Californian exotic car owner decided to think outside the box. The 1000 horsepower Chevy powered bastard Ferrari seen here is the result.
This yellow Ferrari 360 may have been born in Maranello, but it is now has a 427ci ‘Merican heart built by Lingenfelter Performance. Behind the blown big block is a Weismann six-speed semi-auto transaxle. Few other details are known about the Ferrari beyond the fact the engine produces an estimated 1000 horsepower and its part of the amazing car collection shown here.
I guess when you already have an unbelievable garage full of Porsches, Ferraris and not one, but two Pagani Zondas creating the ultimate bastard Ferrari is the natural next step. The identity of the owner of this impressive California collection wasn't revealed, presumably so the rabid packs of Ferrari purists don't know how to seek revenge for this unholy creation. To my uncouth automotive tastes, this Chevy powered hot rod is as cool as a 360 GT can get. After decades of the exclusive brand being associated with high society, perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise this Ferrari wears a bowtie so well.
