Are V8 hot rods too common? How about a Ferrari V12-powered Model T?

Two superchargers and 12 cylinders in a car from the 1910s, what madman created this?

ProWire Performance Wiring in Penrith, New South Wales recently had a V12 powered Ford Model T in its workshop to be rewired.

The team behind this creation is PREP'd Motorsport, a company known for its race cars.

As you can see, the car has been heavily modified to accommodate the engine, which is said to be a 4.4-litre V12 from a Ferrari 365 GTB/4.

There are also two superchargers strapped to the engine, because why not? A power figure isn’t given but the V12 is easily producing way more power than the Model T’s original 2.9-litre in-line four cylinder.

As already mentioned nothing is standard on this Ford, gone are the complicated controls instead replaced by a common three pedal set-up and a manual floor shifter.

We don't know a lot more about the car, but if you do let us know in the comments.
