What Would You do with a Ferrari 550 Maranello V12 Engine?
We've already established that buying a used exotic sports car can turn out to be a bottomless money pit.
But for the sake of conversation, let's say that you had the opportunity to buy a supercar's engine alone, like this 5.5-liter V12 from a 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello coupe that we discovered on eBay with 9,000 miles and a 'Buy it Now' price of $16,999; what would you do with it?
If it the engine turned out to be in good condition, would you try to fitting it in another Ferrari or would you attempt a crazy engine swap in the likes of the F360-powered 1960 Nash Rambler Wagon or the Lamborghini-powered Ford Mustang, and if so, which donor car would you prefer?
Then again, maybe you'd like to create one of the world's most expensive coffee tables. Whatever your choice, we'd like to hear about it in our comments section after the break.
