The Lancia Stratos of the early 1970s used a Ferrari V-6 engine.
The heart of any Cavallino is its engine, and over the years, that magic Maranello beat has thumped under the hood of a few cars that were not Ferraris.
Learn about the exclusive but diverse group of cars that have benefited from genuine Ferrari power.
ASA 1000 GT and 1000 GT Spider
This compact coupe and convertible was built in the 1960s in small numbers by a prominent Ferrari client and his son who had the pull to land for their car a Ferrari-built 97-horsepower four-cylinder engine.
Fiat Dino Spider and Coupe
When Ferrari had to install a V-6 engine in more than 500 cars to qualify it for racing, it turned to Italy's largest automaker and the Pininfarina-designed Fiat Dino Spider convertible and Bertone-designed Dino Coupe were born.
The wildest non-Ferrari to run a Ferrari engine was this 1970s rally car. Also offered in a roadgoing version, the wedge-shaped lightweight had a 192-horsepower V-6, handled like a racecar, and could hit 140 mph.
Lancia Thema 8.32
It wasn't just sports cars that borrowed Ferrari engines. This luxurious sedan took its name from its 8-cylinder, 32-valve Ferrari V-8 and, with its low-key styling, was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
