This Opel Kadett hillclimb race car is equipped with a whole lot of race-ready upgrades, including a full roll cage, some serious aero, and an engine that can rev to the moon. We can't stop listening to it.

According to this video's uploader, the car uses a 1.6-liter Opel block using a head from a Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle engine, allowing it to rev to 10,400 RPM and make an astounding 255 horsepower. Combine that with the car's 1700-pound curb weight and you've got yourself one quick machine.
