Some auto enthusiasts happened to be walking past their local Nissan dealer and were surprised to see a Ferrari badge peaking out at them from a crumpled wreck in the corner of the shop. On closer inspection they noticed the car was a complete write-off, but that it was also missing its drivetrain. Then they noticed a group of five mechanics huddled around a sporty looking Sunny (Sentra) on the other end of the garage. You can probably guess what they found when they sauntered over for a closer look. The newly-mid-engine Nissan Sunny has had quite a power upgrade. With twice as many cylinders and roughly 380 hp to play with, this F355-engined pocket rocket should be quite a wild ride. We hope they add a little rear ventilation in the extreme makeover. Revenge of the '80s, it's the return of the killer Bs.

      What a load of nonsense. The first picture looks like a GTI-R for sure. Oddly enough the second picture looks like a VW Golf. Also has a damn site wider rear track than the GTI-R...
      Who you trying to kid..?!!

      Like #4 mentioned, and for those that don't know,
      That is a Pulsar GTi-R, not exactly a sunny/sentra

      @#2 ... an I6 would be a bit of a stretch to put in the engine bay ent it? I've worked on these, the Turbo I4 and its inter-cooler barely fit. Not to mention its transversely mounted.

      THIS...IS...AWESOME! Closest thing I have seen to this was the post about the mid-engined VW MkIII using a VAG 1.8T a couple of weeks ago...but a F355 V8?! That is just INSANITY!

      #2, #3, and #4:

      I think this was a spur of the moment, "what's the craziest thing we could do with a spare Ferrari engine" type of situation, meant to be ridiculous and humorous. You guys completely missed the point and beat the fun out of it with your retarded comments. Congrats.

      well, the first pic is obviously the before pic because the last pic is with the car sitting on top of the Ferrari engine and axle.
      With the Ferrari wheels sticking out like that, it wont be a sleeper. not that it might not be fun...

      #2 I think this was a project of "oh look there's a wrecked ferrari we could buy for cheap!!! I wonder what we could cram this baby into??? oh gawd I think we can cram it into a sunny!!!!" or something to that effect. Not so much a "ok I have this Nissan Sunny, how can I pour over $100k into this POS??? oh I think i'll turn it into a AWD Skyline!!! Jeeves go get the large checkbook, my good pen, and a bag of ice for my wrist, this will be a long night."
