We've come across a few wild engine swaps floating around the deep dark corners of the internet, but we think this might be the finest one we've seen. It's a Rolls-Royce Phantom that's had its 6.75-liter V12 removed and replaced with a 700-horsepower 2JZ from a Supra. Hell yes.
This Phantom is an early pre-facelift last-generation model that suffered an engine failure. Instead of spending a bunch of money at the dealer to make the car roadworthy again, the Japan-based owner decided to have a fully built turbocharged and supercharged 2JZ straight-six installed, according to .
Power is sent through an automatic transmission with a center console-mounted gear selector (remember, the Phantom has a column-mounted selector from the factory), while things like RPM, water temperature, oil temperature, speed, and boost pressure are displayed via a couple of very out-of-place gauges.
The Tokyo Tuner YouTube channel put together a video interviewing Yajima-San, the owner, and recorded the 2JZ Phantom on the move. As expected, it sounds pretty wild. Watch for yourself.
