We all know the regular hitters when it comes to V8-swapped British cars: the Sunbeam Tiger and the Shelby Cobra. But what happens when you shove a 450 horsepower Chevy V8 in a Triumph sedan?

Well, you get a burnout that is significantly larger than the car doing the tire slaying.


While some might call putting a 5.7-liter GM mill in this fifteen-foot classic sedan overkill or sacrilege, we'd argue that the swap feels so wrong that it just has to be right.
