The car that FF.com built

Thought this could be some fun.

Lets build a car. Each week I will nominate a part of a car that everyone must vote for. For example Wk 1 might be the engine, Wk 2 the gearbox, Wk 3 the upholestry etc.

Each component must be original and from any type of car. So we could end up with a 5.4 ltr Ford engine with morris mini body, Lada seats, and a volvo gearbox.

The idea is to pick the best bits from all cars and put em together. Will be interesting to see everyones ideas on whats tops and whats not.

To start, Week One.
The Engine.
Post what you believe the FF.com car should have as its motor. Can be old or new, from a holden, ford, volvo or Mac truck. Just post your favourite/what you think is the best. Engine with most votes will be "fitted" into the FF.com car

My vote is for the current IL6 from the M3 BMW.
Not the biggest baddest engine but one of the best. This will prolly help with weight issues later on.

gotta be original equipment.

I had no idea that Bugatti had that much balls!!

But the Mclaren puts up a good argument.
