Crazy News A 100 mph Yugo on ice

A 100 mph Yugo on ice

You read that correctly! Most of you probably don’t remember the Yugo. The Yugo was so named as it was built in the firmer nation of Yugoslavia and even today, nearly 30 years after the last ones were sold in North America, it is still remembered as one of the worst cars ever built.

Here an add from 1987. We believe every word of it.

But this brief story is about a gentleman that picked out a 1988 Yugo GV as a donor car, for drag racing… Now, as mad as it sounds, it works on so many levels. This Yugo’s obvioulsy not running its stock 45-horsepower 4-cylinder engine. In its stead is a 5.3-litre LS V8 from a GM product that is for all intents and purposes, mounted just below the dashboard.

With some nitrous injection, over-sized mega-studded rear tires, this little car covers the 1/8 mile drag in under 8 seconds with a top speed just over 100 mph! ON ICE!!

The guy and the car are simply loveable!
