How do you make a Skoda Octavia more exciting? That's easy, just stick an extra engine in the back. This unhinged monster created by Ghita Silviu from Romania runs two highly-tuned VAG 2-litre TFSI engines. The one in the rear puts out around 330bhp, and the one at the front an even more extreme 460bhp. That's a combined figure of nearly 800bhp. In a Skoda.

Both engines work independently of one another, both with their own cooling system, air intake and clutch. Each unit powers its nearest axle, making this Octavia four-wheel drive.

All this makes for one devastatingly fast Octavia. 0-62mph apparently takes just 2.5 seconds, and it'll smash past 120mph in 9 seconds. If you want to see how fast that looks, just take a look at it tearing up a drag strip in the videos below.
