For some reason I got this on the brain. The car would be called 666666, for having 666 hp and 666 kg. How possible would it be to meet those specs? (FYI that's 1468 lbs I think)

I guess a V6 would fit right in the scheme.

Thoughts? (other than banning me :oops: )

The At-om 700 (if anything ever came of it) was 700hp and 657kg, so it's in the realm of possibility.

A wild turbo-4 would be lightweight, but I imagine the powerband would be...sketchy.

Oh well, I guess At-om already did it.

$666,666 in the bank account, You know what they say about this hobby? How do you make a small fortune in this hobby? Start with a big one.

Quite easy to build a k24 Honda to hit that number reliably. If you’re looking to build a front engine that takes an expensive bell housing to mate with a bmw (if I remember correctly) transmission. The weight should be easy to hit as well
