Have you guys ever seen something you can't really explain, but which blows you away completely. This is one of those videos, featuring two cars that don't belong in the world of the living.
On one hand, you have Satan's Trabant, which is matte black, chopped and has a huge radiator at the front. That thing sticking out of the headlight? Yep, that's an air filter. Now, since the Trabant is made from cardboard and glue, you can't actually tune one with real hardware, so this is likely something like a Golf 4 with the body of a Traby on top.

The over car is just as wild. They say it's an Opel Corsa, but we see it as a big engine with some Corsa body panels stuck to it. The engine sticking out the front is a C20LET, the 2-liter turbo you got in a Calibra Turbo back in the day. It's supposed to have 204 PS, but in this crazy setup it must be about 700.

As cool as the two cars sound, the actual race is anticlimactic, since the Trabant blows its engine.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
