What ever happened to the TTAC project car? Here is some inspiration of what to do to the poor Sierra. Joel Olsen from Norway converted a 1982 Ford Granada, the European epitome of blah, into a 1,700 horsepower monster.

German magazine Der Spiegel explains how Olsen swapped the original V6 for a 4.7 liter V8. “This engine is in the Koenigsegg CCR, the Ford GT, or in a Shelby GT 500,” says Olsen. But that wasn’t good enough. With a blower by Turbonetics and series of other modifications which make sure that  the power does not cause indigestion, the output was raised to 1,700 hp.

The car will be stopped by a brake system borrowed for the Porsche GT2. The driveshaft is from a NASCAR car, the rear axle from a Mustang Cobra.

No word of the transmission.
