According to a press release from turbocharger manufacturer Garrett, which will host the Chevy-powered Lambo, the car was an engine-less wreck having been in a fire. So B is for Build team is rescuing a Lamborghini that would have otherwise been scrapped, not tearing apart an otherwise fine car. The engine that's going in isn't just a junkyard LS V8, either. It's a 7.0-liter example from a company called Texas Speed.

Review: The 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Is a Brain Blender

  Review: The 2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Is a Brain Blender One week with one of the best-driving cars in the world.The new Evo is the all-rounder in the Huracán family, not quite as edgy as the older Huracán Performante, but sharing that car's uprated, 631-horse V-10 and twin-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission. Also like the Performante, the Evo is all-wheel-drive—although the new car adds rear-wheel steering, torque vectoring, and the new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integra (LDVI) system—which is said to be able to "predict" the driver's intentions (e.g. when blazing down a mountain road) and optimize all vehicle dynamics accordingly.

The team is also adding a pair of turbochargers, and according to the YouTube channel, it should make 1,500 horsepower at the wheels. That's in Koenigsegg and Bugatti territory. Making it all the sweeter is the fact the engine will be bolted up to a six-speed manual transmission, which came from an Audi R8. It looks like they'll even retain the sweet gated shifter the R8 had.
