Heck, that would be far more impressive in the engine bay of a Chevelle than the standard LS swap.

It's a tad far away, shipping might become an issue no mention of ECU, flywheel, or trans included.

Yes, but fitment problems & hiding it under a hood make it an endeavor not worth the effort.
You want to have that puppy on full display in the bed of an El Camino like The Little Red Wagon

Some swaps are not proper but that engine is pure indulgence.

I want a P400 Muira to mount that engine mid-ship and transversely.

It's 572hp for $31,000

I'd rather see a $10,000 650hp 416 LS3 stroker.

That's a "been there, done that" and "lather, rinse, repeat" type build.

I can't recall a V12 in a Chevelle... That is why I think it would be cool. Not because it has the most horsepower - because it would be unique.

"unique" doesn't win races.

Re: Lamborghini V-12 For Only $31,000...

My wife and I rolled up to a light late one night in the 72', and while sitting there, we noticed a God-awful clatter coming from a couple lanes away. Turns out it was a late model Lambo. If I had an engine that sounded that horrible, I put a bullet through the crankcase and put it out of its misery.

When I win the lottery (and I will....) This LS V12 will reside in one of the Montes that'll be in my garage. Plenty space for it!
