Story from Top Gear.

Quote
Lazzarini Design has clearly read the Top Gear Guide To Fixing Everything: Chapter 1, because this Italian firm (in no way connected to Alfa, we should make clear) has revealed an ambition to better the Alfa Romeo 4C. How? By stuffing in a Ferrari V8. And not just any Ferrari V8, but a twin-turbo Ferrari V8. Like we always say, everything is better with a  V8.
 
Lazzarini has announced plans - just plans at this  stage, mind - to slot in a 4.3-litre Maranello powerplant into the dinky, gorgeous 4C Coupe, together with a pair of turbochargers from our good friend Mr Hennessey, and many other performance goodies.
 
And here comes the boom: total power is estimated to sit at 738bhp and a whopping 532lb ft of torque, powering those rear wheels to a 0-60mph time of 2.5 seconds. What now?
 
The ‘Definitiva', as Lazzarini calls it, will also get carbon fibre body panels, a new rear bumper, centre mounted exhaust, new wheels, and - we're praying - bigger brakes and beefed chassis control systems. The acoustic soundproofing to contain your screaming? No word.
 
Oh snap, you're still reeling from that 0-60mph time? Well, Lazzarini also reckons on a quarter mile time of just 9.5 seconds at 137mph. Yes, Mr Toretto, this is a ten second car.
 
Of course, at this point, and potentially many points in the future, this is about as real as unicorns that cry money. But if it ever happens... well, stand well back.
 
A prototype is expected to cost an estimated £196k, which is a fair slug of cash for a modified Alfa 4C. But hey, what could possibly go wrong?
