This old Kadett eats Ferraris for breakfast

Small but mighty

Don’t be fooled by its unassuming look. This little German fella is a 700 PS monster.

Seeing an Opel Kadett with a 1.6i logo slapped on its backside few people would get the suspicion that it might be a drag race champ. Nothing gives away the old Kadett in the video below. The discreet rear wing and a set of alloy wheels reveal nothing about what this fella is capable of.

The German tuning company, WKT went for performance instead of a showy look when giving this Kadett a full overhaul and the result is a real sleeper. The car was fitted with a 2-litre, 4 cylinder engine with a huge turbo bolted on. That alone makes for about 695 PS and no data has been revealed regarding the top torque. The car does 100-200 km/h in only 4.57, and 100-250 km/h in 8.26 seconds. Insane. 

The Ferrari 458 is clearly no worthy rival for the Opel, and neither is the 911 Turbo. The only vehicle that came close to beating the brutal Kadett was a Yamaha R1 sports bike.

Here's another video showing more details:

Do infrequent oil changes
kill the engine?

Nowadays oil change intervals run up to 30 thousands kilometres. But will this lengthening of oil change periods destroy the engine in the long run?
