put a v10 underneath and then wait for the next Japanese dragser at the streetlights.

Aggravate the guy behind the wheel and as the light turns green leave the smoke on his windscreen.

Not a bad feat for this chevy

but what if our conty teaches a RS guy the same lesson.

well, the Contessa sure can compete wit the Muscle cars, especially like the Ford GT350's. u should also add a good muffler/exhaust system to it, while making it pump around 350bhps with a v8 or v10 5Lt engine. i am sure the contessa's engine bay is roomy enough for such kinda engine...?
I found this site below. It has Chevvy Engines The cost on the site is $3750 = Rs. 1 Lac 63 Thousand

Voted against. Our cities are highly polluted as it is. We don't need big, gas-guzzling and polluting vehicles with outdated technology to clog up our roads. We should be moving in the opposite direction of phasing out these vehicles. My apologies to the driving enthusiasts, but keeping the environment clean is important.

Ditto here, C'mon guys, we are 6 years into the 21st century now.. Stop living in the 70's when the cost of fuel was very low.. And one had never heard about pollution..

Fuel Efficient, non-polluting cars is the need of the hour, If it has power, it should be a bonus.. But the priorities need to be re-aligned with the changing times..

Padmini 120 bhp would be great, the nimble size would give it some cornerability and the ability to kick itself out of line. But the problem is - how do you do 120 bhp in the Padmini (I mean what engine - I found in Topgear about a padmini with ISUZU 1.8 Turbocharged). The second is the rear suspension (although the front is perfect with the double wishbone job)
