Monster Matiz: 505 hp

The Chevrolet/Daewoo Matiz is a subcompact sold in several places around the world. Usually, the diminutive Daewoo comes with either an 800cc three-cylinder engine, or a massive more powerful 1.0-liter mill cranking out 50 hp and 64 hp, respectively.

Enter Fourdin Auto Sport, out of Belgium, who has stuffed a 500+ hp, 7.0-liter Corvette Z06 V8 engine into the little Korean-made Chevy. Zero-to-sixty is said to be in the high three-second range and a top speed of more than 160mph. How about some vids?

Thanks to Thomas for the heads-up on this little beast!
