There have been decades upon decades of people stuffing smaller lightweight cars with monstrous motors. Seeking that 'next level' of mechanical symphony. Several outrageous examples come immediately to mind. The '80 Renault R5 Turbo. The '64 AC Cobra. The '66 Pontiac GTO.
And today, the Fiat 500 with a 458Italia V8 in it's loins. That would be fun.
