Mounting a 180 HP 3.5-liter Range Rover V8 in a custom subframe in the rear of a Renault Twingo, French customizer Lazareth has turned the most utilitarian of superminis-headlights were optional when the car first went on sale in 1992-into a supercar eater. Virtually everything underneath the Patrick le Quement-designed skin has been changed, with suspension brought inboard formula style, while the exterior has gained wild DTM-style arches to support the massively widened track.
