    How about 4 of them?



    Not Merlins but four Allison V12's which totals 6840 cubic inches (around 112 litres) and produced 12,000 horsepower — an output that remains unchallenged by any piston vehicle!!!

    and it's "based" on a Fiat topolino

    Pointless but impressive all the same

    Practical PErformance Car magazine are doing the same thing (might even be the same car, I know they've been working on it for a while).
