Someone Put a Honda K24 Engine In A Ferrari 308 And We’re Confused

There are a couple of things in the automotive world that are considered taboo. Although you can see plenty of crazy ideas out there, this one is on a whole other level. If you are a Ferrari fan, a purist, or have a faint heart, switch the channel now. In case you are curious as well as one of the aforementioned, do so at your own risk.

What you will witness is a rather radical time-attack conversion of a Ferrari 308. Yes, the elegant 1970s Italian roadster, normally used by old rich people as a cruiser, will see a ton of honing once it is done. A time attack build normally involve engine, drivetrain, and chassis enhancements, as well as crazy aero and weight shaving. Reliability is also key and what better way to get it than to install a Honda K24 engine?

Some would say this is blasphemy and they’ll probably be right. At the same time, you cannot argue with the sheer punishment a K24 can withstand. Whilst the original Ferrari unit is much older and quite a bit more pretentious, the Honda can take pretty much anything you throw at it and ask for more while delivering great performance.

Remember the Honda NSX? When it came out, it showed everyone that you can get Ferrari-levels of performance (if not greater) while having a reliable car. Although we do not condemn the actions in the video, we see the logic behind them and we are curious about the results.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
