Are you going to be one of those loud jerks with a noisy car driving up and down the street? If so, boo, I say, boo.

I dig... Tiny little car with a v8 I assume based on the headers. Would be a fun cruising car no doubt.

V8? Crazy Americans.

Its a hot four that is so light that it will kick the butt of any v8 monstrosity.

The Caterham R500 is that fastest car around the Top Gear track for the price and only a really small number of hyper cars can beat it on a track.

Yea I just looked it up, most of them are motorcycle engines. Strange that it has 4 headers coming out just the one side though. Apparently there is a version, made by an outside company I believe, that is two motorcycle engines joined at the crank to make a 2 liter v8.

I'd still like a big heavy v8. They're getting lighter and squeezing more power out of them all the time, and you just cannot replicate the v8 sound and feel with a 4 banger.

Funnest car I ever drove as a Ferrari 308 GTSi Quattrovalvole. That small displacement high revving V-8 was so fun to romp on.

Kid in the black owned it, I am in the Jamz. We did some really really really stupid stuff in that car. Really.

Actually that is the GTBi. His girl friend at the time had a minor fender bender in that car and Bob Norwood traded him for a GTSi as he wanted the hard topped Berlinetta for a salt flat car he was building.

The Super 7 by Lotus used a 4 cylinder engine, from 1.2-1.7 liters. They were sold as kits too and used whatever engine you could find. I have never seen one with a motorcycle engine.
