Went to the site, they made the front look very BMW, and the back very corvette.

I've never seen another Opel look that way.

To read go to the normal pages, and use google translator to make the text english. Unless you are swedish.

The supercharger/turbocharger would be interesting to drive, says the loss of hp to the bypassed supercharger is about 10 hp.

That's funny. I built one of those as a kid and forgot about it. I also built the rotary version!

I had the kit and it never got built!

In a sad turn of events whenever it was time to work on engines we worked on real ones. That kit hung out under my bed for the longest time. Then I went to build it during highschool just for the heck of it, and found stuff was missing.

Always bugged me.

I built the engine.
Then I built the chassis.
Then I put the engine in the chassis.

It was all down hill after that…

Ducati V-One supercharged single conversion



Cool idea using the rear cylinder as a supercharger.

Bimota V-Due Engine. God I wish they had gotten these to work better. Might have added a decade (or more) to 2-stroke road going motorcycles.
