Seeing is believing, and this Jaguar V-12 swap into the impossible engine bay restrictions of a Miata would have seemed impossible… until an enterprising home builder did just that.
Yes, its beautiful – and yes we very much want one of our own.
Courtesy of YouTube, you can follow the build and first drive:
- HotRodders.com gives the builder a snotty reception: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/v12-miata-142001.html (note the reaction of one idiot in particular on that site, before he realizes the builder is legit and jumps in with suggestions for an alternator problem)
