Fiat dragsters

Fiat dragsters

A 383 cubic inch (that’s 6.2-litre) Chevy V8, churning out 484 kilowatts, shoehorned into the front of a 1980 Fiat 126? You better expect some wheelstands. These flyweight Fiats have a power to weight ratio that would slay just about any supercar you care to mention.

Mark Skinner’s car (the orange one) runs a sub-10 second quarter mile. Lucy Skinner, in the blue, has to be content with a 13-second run. Both are seriously fast, and excellently insane.
