Ford GT40 by Ruffian Cars Is An Homage To The 1966 Ford GT

The Ruffian 40 will blow you away with attention to detail, performance, and an epic V-8 soundtrack

Modern performance cars have a tough job replicating the feel and presence of iconic models, a case in point being the Ford GT40. Ford, itself, has been trying to come up with a proper successor for about half a century before coming up with the 2005 Ford GT and later the 2017 Ford GT. Chris from “Ruffian Cars”, however, may have come up with the best homage to the 1960s legend, with his 1966 Ford GT40-inspired, all-carbon-fiber, wide-body creation, presented by AutoTopiaLA.

This V-8-Swapped BMW 1M Coupe Might Be The Perfect Driver’s Car

Does a V-8 engine swap ruin the BMW 1M Coupe’s driving dynamics or does it enhance them? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe finds out

BMW’s slogan is “Sheer driving pleasure” and in reality, most of what has come from the brand’s M-division has managed to live up to those words. The BMW 1M Coupe, in particular, was praised by many, including Jeremy Clarkson, for being one of the best driver’s cars, ever made. However, someone decided that’s not good enough and tore out the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six for a much bigger V-8. Is this individual insane or is he/she on to something? Mike Fernie from DriveTribe takes it for a spin to find out.

Mike Finnegan from Roadkill has put a 2JZ GTE in a 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s one of the most outrageous builds ever done

We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing.
