just think of the possibilities.
my choice is a worked 400bhp nissan vq35.
that thing would be fast.
Now that is a rather valuable tidbit of info that I didn't know. Props
REALLY WOAH!!! That is amaing i wud put a twin turbo V8 in it, or poss a small Block Super Charged V12
Dang coo dude
omg, are you serious? it is beyond me how wrong that post was
o and btw, no they cant, look at how tiny the thing is! it litteraly doesnt have enough room behind the driver for anything bigger then an I4. besides, anything bigger and it would DESTROY its balance
that would be hard to drive
Yeah, the chassis is too small to stuff anything larger than a 4 cyl into, so all opf your thinking of crazy engine swaps-forget it. About the only other interesting engine choice one could have for thes car would be a rotary, but that would require a bit of work.
ive seen an engine from a honda civic type R inside one of these things, and it was superchaged!!! 300bhp!!! 0-60 in 2.9 seconds!!! under 20000 pounds!!!
this is a real supercar! just have a look on the www.youtube.com website and search for ariel atom, it should show you the movie there, and trust me after seeing it you will want one!
That opens up a world of possible figures.Thanks for the info.
most engines you guys are talking about would be almost as big as the car when they are plumbed, hooked up, etc. I think the honda engines are ample
lol at the regular members posting in here, AMGrulZ im looking @ u
what if i put an evo8 engine into thi stuff??
wonder how it goes
It doesn't need another engine. The one it was engineered with is probably the best possible engine for the car.
you know how tempting it is posting here, showing the lil guys whos boss
Listen guys, there's a new version out with a supercharged version of the awesome four banger from the Honda Civic type R! It's small/lighgtweight for awesome handling, revs high and responds instantly, and develops 300 hp! Go on youtube and watch Jeremy Clarkson take the ride of his life for the show Top Gear. 0-60 in 2.8 sec! The air intake behind his head was sucking the fat off his face!
there are alot of motorcycle engines that would be pretty good in this car i think, like the hayabusa engine which is 1.3L and makes 175hp
Someone did put a V8 in one, although it was only a 2.8L v8.
How awesome would a turbocharged 'Busa engine be? Vicious
YEAH MAN I'M GONA PUT A VEYRON ENGINE IN IT BUT I'M GONNA TWIN SUPERCHARGE IT AS WELL AS QUAD-TURBO IT SO I CAN MAKE 2000HP!
