I've heard of some Smart cars being kitted out with motorcycle motors
and specially built gearbox (to include the reverse gear). This is the
first time I've seen a sleeper Smart besting Ferrari.
Andy Granatelli modified his plain Jane 1984 Chevrolet Caprice to
include 900-hp 600-cid V8 motor which did almost 195mph in comfort and
style. It had all of requisite luxury accessories and such. He enjoyed
pissing off Ferrari and Porsche drivers in southern California region.
