I know everyone is obsessed with the Alfa Romeo V6, but the largest and most powerful production version was a 3.2 with 250hp. Go to AutoDelta and you now have a 3.7 or 3.8 with 340hp… roughly the same as a stock VQ37VHR.
Now… let’s pop over to Z1 Motorsports and you’ve got 400 reasonably priced horsepower. That’s before you add cams, and stroke it to 4.3 liters. There’s just so much more potential with this engine from a performance perspective.
The F-Type is awesome… but I’ve yet to see a 700+ horsepower tuned version of the 5.0. Most I’ve seen is around 620-650hp. Until that changes… engine swap is the best way to go.
As for the Rolls-Royce’s 6.75-liter naturally-aspirated V8, yes - the obvious solution would be to swap the newer twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8 from something like a Mulsanne Speed with its 530hp, and 811 ft/lbs of torque. But…by swapping in a supercharged LT5 or Hellcat/Demon engine, I can actually call it a “Blower Bentley”.
These are brilliant swaps, I promise. LOL
@SkylineFTW97 Yes… until someone comes out with a more powerful production American engine.
