This 9,000RPM Yugo is the pocket rocket of your dreams
It hasa Fiat Bravo engine but screams like a motorbike
Hillclimb cars are absolutely fascinating. They are usually incredibly light, loud, high-revving and very powerful and we love to watch them zoom up a hill. But, this one is special because it is a Yugo - the car we all love, even if we don't want to admit it.
This bright red little Yugo is powered by a Fiat Bravo engine and produces 220hp at 9,000RPM and weighs just 725kg. All this power comes through the front wheels and is regulated by a 6-speed Sadev sequential Gearbox.
It has won countless races and achieved a great number of Class Records through the years. In this video, you can see it on one of its very last appearances at Skradin Hillclimb where it posted a tremendously impressive performance. It even placeed among the 10 Fastest Touring Cars present at the event overall.
