A 1700-hp Ford Granada Makes All The Sense In The World

The Ford Granada is the unsung hero in the company's portfolio. It's completely unassuming, largely unknown, and capable of accepting any drivetrain a Mustang can swallow and more. Here, some nutter has put a Koenigsegg-style, 1700-hp twin-turbo V-8 in one. » 3/17/10 4:00pm 3/17/10 4:00pm
