The Spitfire was a classy looking British roadster in the 60s - but by the 70s it received fang-like bumper-appendages added to meet US federal 5-mph crash requirements. This count Dracula transformation is completed on this customized example with a chrome air scoop (taken from Vin Diesel's fast and furious Mopar), side pipes and a roll cage. What was once a simple Romanian prince is now transformed into a caped (parachuted?) monster ready to drain blood at the local strip.
This right-hand-drive Spitfire 1500 was originally powered by a 53 horsepower 1.5 liter inline 4 that gave it performance on par with a golf cart in a tractor pull. Lucky for horsepower junkies, tire and oil companies - Dracula has been given a heart transplant: a carb'd 6.6 liter Chevy small block V8 puts power down to the pavement via an automatic transmission and Ford 9 inch rear end. The seller claims 0-60 in 3 seconds and 1/4 mile in less than 10 seconds - putting this car in the ludicrously fast realm of cars faster than anything you can buy in the showroom today...that's correct, it'll beat any stock Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti etc for the price of a nav system option package.
Would you park this monster in your garage or put a steak into its hood scoop?
