If you've ever found yourself thinking the world needs more miniature supercharged V8 engines, think no more. Conley Precision Engines has put the finishing touches on its Stinger 609; a 6.09 cubic inch, fully-functional V8 engine. The little mill has its own supercharger, dual carburetors and a functional serpentine belt and turns out a full nine horsepower. The machine revs to a lofty 10,000 rpm and sounds like the offspring of a dentist's drill and a lumpy-cam small block. In other words, it's perfect. The Stinger 609 is 14 inches long from tip to tailshaft, just under half as wide and sits 10 inches tall. It tips the scales at 11.25 pounds.

Think this is the world's greatest paperweight? We'd be inclined to agree if the machine didn't carry such an eye-widening price tag. Conley Precision Engines will politely ask for $7,000 before handing you your own scale blown V8. We're just happy to live in a world where something like this exists. Check out a quick clip of the engine in action below.

      "We're just happy to live in a world where something like this exists." That just about sums it up. Great line. By the way, it has a fairly typical, perhaps slightly low, power density. Scaled up to 5.0 liters, it would have 450 hp.

      As everyone else has mentioned, this needs to be in a go kart stat! Or at least a RC dragster.

      If/when I win the lottery, this man will be getting a call and the world will have more V8 powered blenders and weed whackers in it.

      Sounds like the makings for one of the most badass, unique (and not to mention, pricey) karts... ever! All it needs now is a miniature six speed and LSD! :D

      $7,000 seems awfully low considering the amount of time, machining, and custom parts that goes into it. It would take me upwards of a year or longer to even come close working around the clock.
