But, that’s what this man has done and, in the process, created his death wish. The Exocet kit car uses Mazda Miata bones, meaning it only weighs in at 1,900 pounds. Then, you add in the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 engine, which produces 556 hp. That’s nearly 3.5 horsepower per pound of car. And horses certainly do run fast.
Putting it further into perspective is the attached video, showing the incredible acceleration in the car. Complimenting the acceleration must be some pretty beefy brakes, because the passenger actually loses his glasses once the driver applies them to slow down the hurling mass of framework and V8 engine.
scariest awesome go-kart? We think so.
