From retrorides, an Elise 1.8VVC engined, spaceframed Citroen Dyane biggrin





I'm not sure if it was this car but many years ago, possibly in Fast Lane magazine, I remember a yellow Lotus engined Dyane. It had a plastic garlic or onion hanging in the windscreen as l low tech g meter, bigger angle = harder cornering, dangling on the glass = rolled it hehe

What was that Lexus v8 engined Omega I saw in Evo a few years back?
Not that mental. Opel got as far as doing Autobahn testing on a V8 Omega but they couldn't keep it cool enough on long runs for production.
Nah, there was some swedish(?) chap who'd tuned something up to 1000bhp and whapped it in the front of Vauxhalls executive barge. They tried to vmax it on some ring or other, but unremembered mechanical failure may have put paid to it.

Will try to dig the issue out in the absence of someone with an infallible memory.
BOSH!

Yugo Integrale (both the engine and 4wd system swapped in);




Twin-engine, all wheel drive Yugo with a 500 cubic inch (that's 8.2 litres!) Caddy V8 at the back and a Chrysler 2.2 turbo/transaxle in the front;

Racing Dynamics K55. Mightn't sound as wild now, but remember being blown away by the idea of a Compact with a 427bhp bored-out V12 from the 850Ci. Only one built I believe, and price-tag would have been £86k back in 1997 IIRC

That is mad. What does a car with a large block V8 to the rear wheels with a 2.2 turbo coming on song at the front feel like??

Madness.
