THE Alfa Romeo-Ferrari collaboration it has a history of a century. The two brands merged for the first time decade of 1920when the young man Enzo Ferrari he did them first of steps and undertook to run them Alfa to the raceswhile this continued after the war for a few years, until them authorities her decade of ’50.
In modern times, a creation that combines parts manufactured by the two companies is not something common, but the passion of a Australian petrolhead name Jeff he made it come true.
He took one Alfa Romeo 2000 Veloce GT of 1973replaced all the rusted panels with new ones, and over a period of four years, made all the necessary conversions, along with fitting a V8 engine from the Ferrari 360with the result that he presents on his channel Larry Chen on YouTube.
The interesting thing is how to secure him engine was not even the most difficult place of this process. It was in one 360 which was about to happen scrap in Adelaideand financially beneficial, as the purchase of this Tipo F131 of 3.6 L it was cheaper from making the necessary changes to the original 2 liter Veloce engine.
THE installation of the motor was demandingof course, as its dimensions are different from those of the original, as a result of which it exists distance just 1 centimeter from the body.
And precisely because we’re talking about a completely different engine than the original, Jeff had to put his mind to thinking of a way to get the power to the wheels. He did it to me gearbox from one Subaru BRZand while normal 250 PS motor is intended and no him V8 of 400 PSthe same optimistic how it will have no reliability issues.
And best of all, Jeff wants to make this car the everyday of vehicle.
