Fiat 500 with Ferrari's V8 engine

An Italian car designer, Lazzarini is famous for his crazy ideas in modifying cars, including Alfa Romeo 4C and Fiat 500 with V8 engines sourced from the Ferrari 458 Italia. It’s been a few years since we’ve heard from that last concept, but now Lazzarini says they actually want to build one with investor help.
