When a car is as heavily modified as the one with the V8 in it, I am not sure it can be called a "smart" anymore. Just about the only thing similar to a smart is the body and even that had to be modified to get everything in there. More like a smart inspired funny car in my opinion

This video shows a lot more details of the car:


Sad thing is, even with the V-8, it really isn't any faster than Frankensmart. Both run about a 12.5 sec 1/4 mile...

The cool thing about Frankensmart is, it looks stock, so nobody expects it to be fast...

...the funny thing about that video is that Discovery channel was there at Route 66 raceway to do a feature about that same car...the bad news was that Frankensmart was there too and it brought more onlookers than the big V8 itself

Jetfuel....way to go Barney...
