The builder says this project was built to perform not look pretty. And that is exactly what the Swedish creation does. It started with a custom tube chassis with a Toyota Starlet body modified to fit over it. You can tell the front has been extended several inches to fit the longer engine bay. Under the hood sits a Volvo V230FK engine that produces 622 horsepower and 805 Nm (593 lb-ft) on 2.62 Bar (37.9 psi) of boost. The engine runs off E85 fuel and gets the boost from a Precision PT6266 turbocharger. The rest of the drivetrain consists of a BMW ZF transmission and Volvo 1031 rear end. In order to build more power the team made plans recently to upgrade the head from a 8v to a 16v.
