Someone has finally done it… Just when we thought we have seen everything on the internet a mad man goes to insane measures to impress the world and create a vehicle that he had been dreaming about for years! Here we have the famous 2JZ engine swapped into a Rolls Royce. The Rolls Royce is known for its luxury demeanor and relaxed mellow almost elitest styling makes it something at a level people dream of being at.
