Subcompact Supercar: Festiva Shogun

I'm sure everyone remembers the diminutive Ford Festiva (no, not the Fiesta). However, do you remember the crazy V-6-powered Festiva Shogun? Powered by the Yamaha-made Ford Taurus SHO engine, which was located in the rear, this little vehicle got up and went. Above is a neat little video from the show Jay Leno's Garage, where Jay talks about his Shogun (number 3 of 7). I'd say this car definitely qualifies as a subcompact supercar.

The "Fiesta" link is borked.

Thanks for the heads up. Link should be fixed.

It uses a heavily modified version of the original GTI 1.3 liters engine. I do not know why he spent so much $ 15K-$ 20K, but is still a little door & fresh.
