What is better than blasphemy but still looks good? Blasphemy that sounds good. That's why we're so pumped for this two-turbocharged, LS-swapped Lamborghini Huracán that comes to the annual SEMA aftermarket show in Las Vegas.
Yes, you read it correctly. B is for Build puts together an Italian supercar built around an American V-8, rather than Huracan's beastly V-10. Purists, rest easy.

This Frankenstein monster is not just a reincarnated Lamborghini chassis with a trash can. B is a Build 430-cubic inch Texas Speed LS engine and equipped with twin Garrett GTX3582R Gen II turbochargers. These are mated to a Graziano 6-speed manual transmission from a Lamborghini Gallardo.

If that description seems wild, just wait until you hear it begin. To skip the discussion and go straight to the loud sounds, start watching the accompanying video at the 6:00 mark. This is just one of a series of YouTube videos that describe the build.
B is for Build still working to get the engine properly tuned, but it has been staged in the chassis and successfully started, which puts construction one step closer to being ready for its SEMA debut on November 5. If you plan to go, you can meet the team behind this wild Americanized Lambo on Wednesday, November 6th at Garrett – Advancing Motion Booth (# 24468).
