There is a sweet spot for modified Sprites, that makes for improved performance in every category without breaking other components. Sure, you can put in 200 HP, but then you’ll need to address the strength of the rear end, and other components.
So we’ve found that you want to boost without going nuts, and, if you do it right, the result is a dreamy sports car that makes all the right noises and puts a smile on your face after every otherwise mundane drive. You’ll beg for the opportunity to go get a quart of milk, and you’ll also find yourself walking into things as you depart your car, because you’re looking longingly over your shoulder at the hottest car in the parking lot.
This is that car. This is London, a fantastic restored Bugeye we supercharged and five-speeded, and upgraded just enough to make for perfection. Congratulations to Bernie, the proud new owner!
