Default A V8 NANO under $20000

Guys
I found this on car and driver website. They were searching for cars under $20000 with a V8 engines.
And our TATA NANO was featured in it.

Here is the link for same

V-8 Tata Nano - Feature / Most Fun for Under $20,000 - Feature / Features/Classic Cars / High Performance / Hot Lists / Reviews / Car and Driver - Car And Driver

I think it a little too over the moon concept but do u think it is possible.

I think it is with major modifications to NANO.
And did i mention the NANO looks hot in the photos. Just look at the interiors and you will know wat i am talking about.


Your views are most welcome.

What the heck! Its a stupid cheap jokes article. Did you ever bother to read what they have to say? They are just making a joke of the car and a lot many other things which are better left unsaid.

A V8 in that sized car. I think you need to see the size of a V8 engine first. By the way, also check out the arithmatic of how the car costs $20,000.

This thread can at best be in the shifting gears thread.

Guys i didn't claim that it is not a photoshoped image
it clearly is as it is not possible. But how about installing the two silencers in production nano, that would look chic and overhead scoops would look good too...


and it was suppose to be taken light heartedly, nothing serious as plonking a v8 is almost imposibble in nano.

i just found it and thought of sharing. You can always comment your thoughts on that website if u like

oh and i could be wrong but the car and driver magazine is one of the best magazine considered for auto in USA. I may be wrong but that is what i have heard. So it hurts that they could fall to such low. They don't knw how american cars are like....

Sorry if it hurts, but i have no intentions of hurting anyone, just while browsing i came across this so thought to post it...

The lambo style rectangular exhaust on the current NANO looks much better than this.

Well, i dont think this would ever happen. Nano is targetted for the people who want a car in the 1 to 1.5 lakh range. Not for some Vroom Lovers

Personally, I dont think that a V8 can be fitted in the Nano. By removing the rear seats, may be. What was the website thinking??
Its like making a Bugatti Veyron which gives 20kmpl and can seat 5 people, their luggage.
