Bisimoto Engineering Is The Best Kind Of Crazy


Toward the beginning this new Drive segment, host Matt Farah says Bisimoto Engineering founder Bisi Ezerioha "loves the unloved."

Who else would build a Honda Insight with 440 horsepower at the wheels—without the benefit of forced induction? Or take a humble family hauler like the Honda Odyssey, convert it to manual, and stoke the motor to produce over 1,000 horsepower?

Fans of the American Top Gear series might recognize the van from a segment where Rutledge Wood used it in a challenge, but this is the first we've seen of Bisi's own Porsche 911—and to put it mildly, it looks bonkers.

Built from the ground up using a 1976 911 Carrera wide-body shell, Ezerioha transplanted a later-model 3.0-liter engine, then force fed it with a pair of billet turbos from Turbonetics. The result is a car which tips the scales at 2,400 pounds, and sends north of 800 horsepower to the wheels.

After taking it along some of California's famous canyon roads, Farah declared himself officially terrified. Watch the video to see him discover, officially, what "too much" is.
