Just not nearly as cool.
What's the point if you can't even do a burnout or drive it fast or anything?

Pretty sure that was the host of the show not allowed, since they couldn't just order replacement parts on a one off, $1,000,000+ car if he broke it.

Yes, but they could have had the guy who owns it drive it, or something. A video featuring a car like that and we don't get to see anything cool besides some photos of the build.

Even as a technical piece of art it's impressive. Who shoehorns a Merlin into a car. I could be thoroughly pleased just by sitting in it idling listening to the noise it makes.

A running Merlin is one of my favorite engine sounds.

One is in process on M.net in the engine conversions forum. Its buried pretty deep though.

We have two diesels, and when the 4.0 goes out in my XJ, it will get a 4BT/NV4500/NP241 combo.
