Yes, that’s a Bentley V-8 of all things

Bonhams is auctioning what could very well be the work of a car-loving Dr Frankenstein. Except that it is not. This concoction came from the workshops of Alexandre Danton aka Danton Art Kustoms from France, and it mingles a Bentley engine mounted in the front of a butchered Porsche 911 body. It is also described as a “stunning special supercar from famed designer” but we know better.

OK, so where do we start? How about this: Bonhams says that “paperwork accompanying the car” identifies the donor vehicle as a 1971 Porsche 911T.

We figure the original was either in a very advanced state of degradation or severely damaged beyond repair because there is not a good reason on this Earth for a classic 911, let alone a 911T, to be turned into a zombie. Just like there is no reason why a car should have metal spikes attached to its rear wheels.

Anyway, the build – which has a double-wishbone front suspension in the front and a solid rear axle with traction bars and coil springs - is powered by a 6.75-liter V-8 taken from a Bentley Mulsanne Turbo.

Output resides somewhere north of 300 horsepower and since it does not have to move 5,000 pounds worth of fancy car anymore, it might make for a scary ride, we will give it that.

As far as the interior goes, all we can spot in there is a bare-bone Brembo steering wheel, some fighter jet-inspired switches and four gauges. Oh, and there’s a pair of aluminum bucket seats in there. That said, maybe some good Samaritan buys it and kills it with fire.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
