Let This Screaming GSX-R1000 Swapped Fiat X1/9 Echo Off Every Hill

Few things sound as awesome as 12,000 RPM wailing out of a little car.

Vincenzo “V-Max” Manganiello, who drives this ultra-special tube-frame Fiat X1/9 like he stole it. It’s as fun to watch him hustle this crazy little thing as it is to listen to.


The tube-frame car isn’t the only lightweight trick at work here. Inside is the insanely loud motorcycle engine from a Suzuki GSX-R1000, good for around 200 horsepower at 12,000 RPM, according to HillClimb Monsters’ YouTube description. The entire car weighs just 1,102 lbs.

I’m pretty sure you’d be able to hear this from Italy.
