The Mazda Miata was designed to be a grown-up’s go-kart that could out handle just about anything else on the road, and it did a pretty good job at that task. However, some people are just not satisfied with enough, and are always looking for more.
In this case, more came in the form of a V12 engine out of a Jaguar that one enterprising Miata owner decided to shove between the front wheels of his Miata to see what would happen.
Sure, it’s not pretty, and twelve carb intakes poking up through the hood are sort of a dead giveaway for the fact that this is no ordinary Miata, but isn’t that the point when you’re building a project like this?
