Default 180 bhp Smart a.k.a "The Smaruki"

Seaching for Smart performance upgrades in Germany, I came across this almost unbelievable job on a Smart car. Somebody has pushed a GSXR1000 engine into a Smart car to produce a 180 bhp pocket rocket !!!

To quote:

"They call the finished car the Smartuki. Itís the only one in existence and Z Cars is planning to offer it as an option. Does it run? 0-60 in 4.2 seconds, 1/4 mile in 12.4 seconds and tops out at 132mph. Definitely not your average Smart! Peter says running up to the traffic lights at 13,500rpm is always amusing since other drivers move over when they hear what sounds like a bike coming up fast. Autosport Magazine tested it against a Mistubishi Evo FQ-330. It didnít win but fared better than the Subaru that tried a week earlier."

With that much power in a Smart, I'd be a little nervous about toppling over in the corners.
