V12 Miata

Never underestimate what a man, money and a garage can do. For example: a first-gen Mazda Miata powered by a Jaguar V12. This guy gets a permanent slot in the Fiend hall of fame. There’s a full year in rebuilding the V12 alone, not to mention the unbelievable amount of fabrication that went into this thing. Custom firewall, timing gear, transmission bits, etc. You name it. Like any true hot rod, this sucker begs steals and borrows from all kinds of rides, no matter the make or model. There are two videos after the jump, a build diary detailing the trials and tribulations and a quick video of the thing jaunting down the street. Crank the volume and enjoy.
