And then head to the track for drifting with friends. Not a bad day.
It’s always good to hear progress reports about interesting car projects, especially those non-OEM. But there was a particular one that had our full attention from the beginning, . . Tuerck managed to find a way to stuff a Ferrari 458 Italia’s 4.5-liter V8 into the small coupe originally powered by a 2.0-liter boxer four. We’re almost certain Ferrari disapproves, but whatever. And now Tuerck has provided an update about this Frankenstein-like project.
Not only is the GT4586 fully street legal, but Tuerck figured it’d be only appropriate to drive it around his hometown in New Hampshire. First stop: his mom’s restaurant for breakfast, followed by ice cream and, later on, sandwich delivery following a lake swim.
And, of course, the GT4586 receives plenty of attention from people who can’t figure out what the hell it actually is. What’s . Not at all shockingly, someone calls the police to complain. The police don’t care. All they want is to hear Tuerck hit the throttle. The day ends with a trip to the track for some drifting with friends. Of course there's some tire shredding.
