This 1978 Ferrari 308 is one of the most interesting and unique builds we’ve ever featured. The original, carbureted engine was removed (it now lives on a shelf at ATS) and a “700 crank horsepower Frankenstein engine made from at least seven dead Ferrari’s” with a bottom end by legendary Ferrari tuner Bob Norwood, sits inside. Highlights include high-compression forged pistons, 348 cylinder heads, 328 oiling sytem, sequential EFI management, and a single Precision 6265 Turbo with ATS’s custom air-to-water intercooler. There’s an upgraded suspension, big brakes, and proper tires to back it all up, and though not exactly built for the race track, this car’s performance is staggeringly good by any measure. In fact, the engine is good for quite a bit more, if there were a reasonable clutch that could handle it. This 308 is right at the top of the favorite drives we’ve ever taken.
