OK, a friend sent me this. They're using two turbocharged Hiyabusa motorcycle engines in this thing. The numbers make it look downright frightening. Must be a hoot to drive though. Thought you all might get a kick from it.

That sounds cool and all, but I want one of those Minis. Listening to it tear around the track on that video was a religous experience. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devilgrin.gif

Yeah, I forgot to mention the mini, and that video is only with the Yamaha R1 motor. I can't imagine what the Hiyabusa turbo equiped one is like!/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

Thats a pretty cool website. I agree about the mini very cool.

Now that redefines "power-to-weight ratio."

But, for less than that kind of dough, I could add twin-turbos and some nitrous to my C5 Corvette and definitely give it a run for its money. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
