Vprache BMW six-cylinder turbo Yugo in hoon mode – Click above to watch video

In the beginning, there was a yellow Yugo GV. And when the folks at Vprache Racing cast their eyes over it, they thought it was missing something. So they gave it an 3.5-liter BMW inline six-cylinder transplant and added a turbo besides. And an intercooler mounted on the grille. And a high-rise lift job. Then they took it hooning. And that was the end of the first day.

When that wasn't enough, they added another turbo and fashioned arches to cover the exposed rubber. And then they took it drag racing. And that was the end of the second day. You can check out videos of the car in both iterations after the jump. It's fast. And in a yellow Yugo, you'd want to be.

      Take the biggest POS car in history, and pump a ton of HP into it. Then jack it up. Now it's a powerful, unstable POS. Don't worry about sending the car to a crusher. It'll get demolished all on it's own.

      Awesome but incredibly boring second video. Bunch of stills, no time slip, and that run didn't look particularly impressive.

      So was it a bored-and-stroked version of the N54/N55 or one of the older M88/S38 ?

      this is cool, low budget fun.

      aslong as you're having fun, this is ok.
      that's what life is about.

      most european rather have a good meal on the table and the fridge filled, than spending every dime on a car.
      i see this daily here in spain.
      but almost everyone has two houses here.
      1 in the city and 1 on the land.

      beside tax on most goods(atleast everything luxury) is 16% and 19% in the netherlands.
      a single male/female person in germany hands over 50% of his wage to the state.
      i also handed about 45% to the state back in the netherlands.

        I thought you didn't like the idea of burning tires and having some fun:

        how about changing trends?i don't see the fun in burning tires.it smells bad."

        no, i don't like burning tires, but i do like scrapyard racers.

        it's because i currently have no place to play with my tools(in faq the hall way is filled with toolboxes, welt gear, nut and bolts), but i have a turbo that came of nissan almera 2.2td in my house.
        : )
        rdy to be played with.

      This is one of those things that you know is completely and utterly pointless.... but you do it anyway because it's just freakin' cool.

      Looks like fun.

      Total insanity, that's car tuning.
      • 5 Years Ago
      There is nothing cool about that thing. It looks slow as piss too. They need to pull the motor out of it and send it to the crusher.
