Koenigsegg CCX-powered Ford Granada is the ultimate unlikely hammer [w/video]
That's when things took a slightly more interesting turn.
Instead of forking over the cash for the Skyline, the owner yanked the Cosworth lump and set to cutting the chassis to make room for more cylinders. When the dust settled, he had managed to cram a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter Ford V8 from the heart of a Koenigsegg CCX supercar, good for a face-ripping 1,700 horsepower. An independent rear suspension from a 2003-2004 Ford Mustang Cobra handles putting that muscle to the rear tires and a set of massive Porsche brakes bring the whole party to a stand still. It's a miracle of fabrication, determination and insanity. We love it. Check out a video of the first start up to see what we mean.
