One of Our Most Popular Web Items? A V12-Powered Ferrari 308 | Your Projects

Looking at the numbers, one of our most viewed items on the site is a project car, but not one of our own. It's forum member mke’s V12-powered Ferrari 308.

To fill everyone in, mke has been working on putting a V12 in an ‘80s Ferrari 308 GTS since the thread started back January 2019, and he was already working on the car before that.

In the latest update, mke decides to forgo building an entirely new suspension and settles for it as it currently sits—a decision we’re familiar with ourselves.

Check out the entire build thread—all 69 pages of it—over on the Builds and Projects Cars forum.

My fault everyone. I got carried away getting creative with the lead photo and pulled a photo we had on file of a 308. I've updated the lead to reflect the actual project car to avoid future confusion.

Kind of like the original TG. They test a white and a red car then in the studio you have a green and a blue one.

Did I miss what the V 12 is out of? Is the V 12 a Ferrari V 12?
