24 Hours of LeMons: Speedycop is building a V16 Lincoln


Well, calling it a “V16” may not be entirely accurate. Speedycop and his ever-growing Gang of Outlaws have embarked upon building a twin-V8 Lincoln Continental. That’s two of Ford’s Modular V8s, whose combined displacement is 124 cubic inches bigger than the 454-cubic-inch plant in Speedholes Racing’s swapped AMC Marlin.

Speedycop’s no stranger to Lincolns (though not-so-much the huge front-drive ones) and LeMons has seen a twin-engined racecar before (and the Little Lamb-orghini ChumpCar team even built a 12-cylinder car with a Modular V8 in it), but using two complicated luxury cars and combining a heckuva lot of cylinders takes the crazy up another notch. It appears this beast will debut at New Jersey Motorsports Park in May, which was also where Speedycop debuted the Upside-Down Camaro that made the Internet flip. The video explains a little about the Continental, but it sure leaves plenty to the imagination like any good tease. See it after the jump.

    I get that hipster-tingle: "I had read about Speedycop before the whole world knew who he is"…meaning: This creativity and will to collaborate will be talked about for ages to come. Glorious!

    Also, look for more build videos of this thing soon. We're primarily building on Saturdays, and will strive to do regular updates. You'll get to experience the dodgy abilities of our team of monkeys with this football, as we fumble around trying to assemble it… 🙂

    Isn't it long past time that Speedycop's name is officially corrected to "National Treasure Speedycop"?

    I love the hard-working dogs in the video… "Oh look, they're tearing apart another big thing. Time for a nap!"
