I have probably said somewhere before, that besides the well known hypercars and racing monsters that we all know well, Italians are well known for the production of small cars, which are very popular in Europe for a long time. But being such a Need for Speed fanatics, the engineers in Turin have decided to create a real small rocket based on their famous Fiat 126 model, an experimental small car that is able to set the track on fire! I know that many of you have never seen this little Italian car (it is not like we can see plenty of them in the US), adapted to maneuver in the small and tiny streets of European cities, but I think that you will like it. It is probably the smallest little rocket-sled that weights only about 1 100 pounds, and it is packing a Hayabusa engine that is giving it a total output of 180 HP!
I know that it does not sound like much, but taking into an account its weight and proportions, this little bugger can do a lot of damage on the road. We do not know what is its maximum speed, but it can hit from 0 to 60 in only 4 seconds. And that means that it can leave in the dust many other, much more prominent cars. I mean, I know it is not a Lamborghini, or Maserati, but it is still a product of the great Italian engineering, which by default means that it is as fast as hell, especially when you add the Hayabusa engine!
Just check out the video below and see what I`m talking about! And if you want to see another interesting clip with this small rocket (accompanied by another, very similar), go to this link.
