Tuning a Ferrari is always a balancing act. On the one hand, you want a special piece of jewelry in your garage, on the other hand, a bad adjustment can lead to a huge loss of warranty. But now we’d like to introduce you to one of the craziest Ferraris of all time, powered by the K24 Honda engine, and in JDM style is held. The creator of the creation is called Mike Burrough (Mike Burroughs Car Builder) and he is from the United States!
Clash of cultures!
On the one hand Italian automotive art, on the other JDM style. What sounds like a battle mode in Need for Speed or Forza Horizon is better described in this amazing project. The JDM influence can already be clearly seen on the outside, because the powerful rear wing and large side skirts are reminiscent of a drift car of Japanese origin. In addition, there are powerful drop center tanks in the five-star design, which comes with a snow-white finish.
The white rim color may match the exterior painting, but it definitely takes some getting used to. To fully incorporate the JDM culture, the 308 also got a crowd kit, which is very reminiscent of the Pandem product. It gives a sharper look to Nippon Italian. Additionally, a new brake system from AP-Racing was installed. This should bring the Italian to a safe stop at all speeds.
The interior has a racing car feel!
Racing bucket seats, a sports steering wheel without an airbag and a long drift lever create a sporty atmosphere in the cockpit that is unusual for a Ferrari. And the engine? The K24 four-cylinder turbo from Honda is ugly behind the seats. Every Ferraristi’s heart is bleeding. So the 3 liter V8 petrol engine was taken out of the car and replaced with a Honda engine with only four cylinders.
The K24, which is also used in the US Civic and Accord, is said to deliver up to 1,000 hp at the wheel thanks to a massive Garrett turbocharger. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed gearbox. Unfortunately, nothing is known to us about the performance and high speed of the creature.
Our conclusion on the Ferrari 308 with Honda’s K24 engine:
Reliability or performance, such a project is a failure of the engine issue. For us, car and engine go together like pizza and wasabi.
