Remember the good old days when true petrolheads used to hunt rare, powerful and expensive engines to put in their, sometimes insipid, rides?
Well, the car that you’re about to see on video below wasn’t that boring when it left the factory. In fact, it’s a first-gen Audi S5 Coupe, which is powered by a 3.0-liter TFSI V6.
However, its owner wasn’t satisfied, for some reason, with the original powertrain. Thus, he set out in search of a heart transplant. Only the search didn’t eye something like an old Lamborghini Gallardo to get its naturally aspirated V10 engine, but rather a Tesla Model S, complete with the electric motor, inverter and battery pack.
The electric motor was mounted at the front, joined by the inverter, whereas the battery pack that provides it with the required juice sits in the boot. The whole build is indeed very impressive, as mentioned by guy who filmed both videos.
Such a massive project most likely required lots of work to complete, but it was well worth it, as the result is a fully functional car. Moreover, it was also subjected to a dyno test, so you may want to hit the play button and see how it fared.
