V8 Prius sleeper

Not mine, I don't know the builder.

Found this the other day while cruising FB.

It's going to be one interesting ride.

Thought some of you may enjoy it too.

A customer of our's (We supplied him a Skyline GT-R & many Nismo parts for his Nissan Leaf, etc) is currently having a 550 bhp 4WD Skoda CitiGo built in London, UK, complete with a motorsport sequential (Rally spec) transmission & transfer box. The rear axle they're using had suspension mountings too wide for the standard turrets, so they rebuilt - without cutting into the rear quarter panels. It'll look a lot like standard from outside but will be lightweight and have a full cage concealed inside. Weight - something like 1000kg or less. It'll frighten London's supercars & others at trackdays when it's all completed.

Here's a thread on the build.

The best on I've seen was an all aluminum blown 427 Chevy shoe horned into a 70 Gremlin. But it was no sleeper. I wish I still had the pictures of it.

I like the old Gremlins with the 401 they used to put in the AMX.

I'm a Volvo guy. Nothing like a turbocharged wagon walking all over M3's and M5's with the rear seats full of child seats and the trunk full of groceries. Ultimate sleeper.

V70R is my next car.

I wouldn't mind a Z-Cars Mini with a bike engine in it.... come to think of it, the SP engine would be cool in one, but for me it would have to be a Hayabusa engine...
There are 2 things that put me off:

(1). Safety (Or lack of it!).
(2). Can't register one for the road in Japan (Bugger! )
