A 50% increase in power on stock parts is very good, especially if there is little/no effect on reliability. Similar gains to what was possible with the cdi remaps. As a comparison that would be like a 500 Abarth making 240 HP with stock parts. Torque numbers would be good to know and if the car is DCT or 5 speed.

Per owner, 205 newton meter with DCT. I think that's around 151 ftlb for us

I am trying to see if it's possible to send my ECU to him and let him tune it for me

I have to applaud anyone making an attempt to make a one off vehicle . Some fail without question . I've seen some real blunders out there, although this one is quite grigarous in nature , it isn't a half assed attempt . That alone give it credibility in my book . Who ever owns this ,obviously enjoys a challenge , and I really don't think they care if we like it or not . I'm just glad I got an eyeful of something I'll probably never see in person. Creativity Lives .

Fair enough! I was thinking about the pure bhp numbers, I wasn't thinking about how that was a 50% jump!!!

I still wonder what kind of lap times can that thing put down though.

This is his grocery shopping car, no weight reduction inside, and in fact, he got full leather upgrades (door panels, the whole dash and roof).

I don't think he even drive the car to the track.

Also, my attachment space has used up, do you know if there is anyway I can get extra space without paying for the membership? any other way to post photos without using attachment function?

Wide Body Smart 453

The wheels/tires have no apparent clearance and the ride quality would be horrendous, at best. And the wing... well, whatís the point?? Itís not like the car needs aerodynamic assistance.

As art, itís a head-turner (not saying that in a good sense). As a performer, itís a full-on senseless fail. If uselessly bizzarre makes it worthwhile, then itís a big win.

That is one sweet car! If you can get your ecu tuned, please let us know! I'm very interested in getting mine tuned and would love to know if he is interested in tuning others!
