Default Modifying a contessa

Can you beleive this guy converted a family Vauxhall victor (our good old contessa) into the fastest street legal car(2200 HP).. 0-60 in 1 sec..Check out the video in the link and see the acceleration for ur self.. If some body wants to modify the contessa think about what it can withstand..as some body pointed out in one of the treads.. contessas big boot was built to accomodate this kinda stuff .. I had been dreaming of plonking in a v6 in to a conti for a long time .. now i should think about it seriously.

No it doesn't. That's a Vauxhall Calibra. This is a Vauxhall Victor that's about 20 years older. Please read the post before jumping onto the search bandwagon.

Hey theres a video there of the same car. the pic in that thread is not the same as the video. There is a video link in that thread which has the exact same story.
