Yeah Dude, It's A Twin Turbo Lamborghini Jalpa

You want to talk ultimate sleeper? Some brilliant hoon decided the limp 255 hp produced by the transverse-mounted, 3.5-liter V8 in his Lamborghini Jalpa just wasn't good enough. (And he ain't buying no stinking Gallardo, neither.) That left him with only two options, both of which happened to be turbochargers lifted from a Mitsubishi 3000GT. Final output? He doesn't say, but if you check out the owner's project site, he claims he stayed in front of a Murciélago on the track. [Laust's Jalpa Project]

Last time I heard a machine make sounds like that, it was a Eureka vac sucking down its own bearings.
