VW Beetle Packing Chevy 5.7L V8 Power

Sure, you might have a fast Audi with electronic this and hydraulic that, but when it comes to what your 5-year old cousin thinks is cool, you have got nothing on this classic Bug turned sportscar humiliator.
So what’s the formula here? Well, you take an air-cooled legend like the Beetle, slam it to the ground, pull the old engine out and replace it with a Chevrolet small block 350 (5.7-liters) V8 engine.

That might sound like the work of Frankenstein, and it probably is, but the owner has reportedly also fitted a 1993 Chevrolet S-10 front assembly and the rear frame off a 1989 Ford Mustang.

No wipers, No indicators, no mirrors... no problem! This will definitely ruin your neighbors’ quiet Sunday morning.
