As far as two-seaters go, they don't get much farther apart than the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 and the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Mazda is as cheap as the Bugatti is expensive, and the Veyron has as many turbochargers – and digits in its output figures – as the Miata has cylinders. But this homegrown example aims to bridge the gap.

Someone, it seems, has stretched out their Miata's wheelbase and fitted a pair of eight-cylinder engines (which is essentially what powers the Bugatti) under the extended hood – or where the hood used to be, anyway. The result, as you can see from the brief clip after the jump, is rather rumblesome. Here's hoping the next vid has a bit more action...

      Don't understand why they didn't fab bodywork to cover the gap. That would have been one cool V16 Miata.

      No credit to forum.miata.net? That's a shame. I don't really care that they took a miata body and stuck it on a truck frame. There's a million miata's out there. So long as people realize it's purely a gimmick.

        Yeah, I bet the blood is boiling on MIATA.NET....I have two Miatas, the 99 w 1.8 is cowering in the garage, and the 91 with 1.6, its nowhere to be found. A few simple changes to the Air intakes, like Cold Air Induction, also referred to a CAI, makes a car, that sips fuel, still save fuel, and burns it more efficiently, and it runs like a scalded dog..holds a corner, like you are picking up change from a quarter! You know, in reference to: basketball jones....aw, no one remembers that song...to big a war going on!!!!.

          Love my Miata, drive almost nothing but. While I would have NO DESIRE WHATSOEVER to own something like this I still find it hilarious.

      That is one really ugly car. I love sports cars but not that one.

      The article mentions a Bugatti, but I guess the joke is the car (and how much it misses the mark). Not safe, not AWD, not mid-engine, and it looks like it would corner like a limo.

      Have to admire the talent to build it, but that talent and $$ sure could have been better spent on something else.

        It's still a free COUNTRY for a little while longer. I guess they can spend their talent and money on what rings THEIR bell, NOT YOURS.
