I've never seen one, but I always thought a +500bhp Evo engine in a caterham might be fun. I suspect 4x4 may be essential!

6.6 ltr Chevy into a Westfield. There was a Viper engine Locost that was being built, but the owner moved to America before it was finished. I don't know what happened to that.
