180bhp Smart car! [YouTube]

I like this. It's totally nuts!

Take a Suzuki bike engine, tune it to 180bhp and then stuff it in the back of a Smart car (the Brabus 'performance' versions are usually about 74bhp.)

It seems to go well. Just not in a straight line

Oh, 0-60 in 4.2 seconds, apparently. If you can get it to go in one direction.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.

That looks like a lot of fun, Noise levels, heat inside the car must be horrific.

That's one for Top Gear .
