emo The "Mighty Midget" - Crazy high performance L200 Mira from Australia

Was browsing the internet the other day and came across this article on Auto Speed. In essence, a man named Ian Richards took a standard L200 Mira, ripped the engine out, placed the 993cc three-cylinder engine from a Charade GT-ti into it and went mental tuning it, to the point where it was producing 180bhp. Not technically a Kei any more, but impressive, none the less!

Fast enough in a shell that light, right? Nope. Everything was stripped and all the panels were replaced with custom fabricated carbon fibre ones, meaning that the car produced around 300bhp per tonne! Insane! B)

Generally an interesting read. No idea what the car is doing now, though.

Aiming for 180bhp? :P

In a straight line it could be fun. I imagine it can get quite botty-clenching in the corners though. ;)

Buy a bolt on turbo kit for it from Malaysia. Direct fit for the 3 cylinder 850cc engine! ;)
