Not many people like the Pontiac Fiero. Really, it should be a hit, but the mid-engined small car received only hate after it was revealed in the Eighties. It was slow, rather small and it needed euro car refinement to pull the sports car ethos off. Sure, it did not have a chance to become popular, but every now and then, some tuner and customiser come up with an awesome transformation making the Pontiac Fiero far more amazing than it ever was.
Today is the day we show you a fantastic looking Pontiac Fiero in Mad Max style. It is a light car. Everything from the inside was thrown out thus lowering the weight of the car to 2,300 lbs. Now, that is really low. As for the propulsion, Mike Nasiatka, its creator, used an engine from the crashed 1994 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T drag car. Small engine was tuned to deliver fantastic 750hp which is more than enough to make the lightweight Fiero more than fast.
Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire was supposed to drive it in its full state of tune, but he could not handle driving it on public roads like that. So, the engine was detuned to 450 hp for this occasion. Don’t think for a second that the car is any less amazing despite giving up 300 hp.
The amount of mods is rather extensive so we cannot exactly list them all. However, check out the description below the video. The most important novelties include Custom built -10 crankcase vent and recirculating catch can setup, Eagle crank and rods, Ross racing pistons, 8.5:1 compression, Stock mitsu oil pump and much more. Please, try to imagine the burn and the speed this insanity is capable of.
