    Yes, on the Caspita Mark II a few years later. The car never became successful though, most likely because the company wasn't main stream.

    I actually knew this. When I first read about it when the CC came out I was pretty impressed. I thought squeezing that much power out of it could cause reliability issues but its one hell of an engine

    If you look at the Ford GT, those guys can make well north of 1,000 hp with a stock transaxle and stock internals in the engine. I'm not a fan of turbos, but the TTGT's know how to slam it hard.

    Both the Ford GT and the Viper started with a truck engine and by the time both companies were done with the engine, it wasn't a truck engine. I'm pretty sure Lamborghini started with small tractor engines. It makes sense to start with a truck engine, as they have to put out a lot of power. A strong truck engine is a good starting point. Everything can be improved on. Koenigsegg started with a Mustang engine, more or less.

    If Koenigsegg put their engines in some Mustangs, those Mustangs could cost like $100K. Would be an interesting Mustang, Koenigsegg Edition. I think if someone really wanted to have fun with a Koenigsegg engine, they would put it in a Ford GT.

    Some pics of the engine from the days when it actually used a Ford engine block. "Powered by Ford" was a bit of a stretch even back then.
