Long time readers will recall the video we posted years ago of a 3 rotor Bugeye Sprite attacking an autocross course. I still go back and visit that clip often, as I just love to hear the wail of the wankel!
Today we have Jeff Kiesel in his Bugeye that has a turbo rotary that puts out a whopping 370 horsepower at the rear wheels! For those who don’t know, curb weight on a stock Bugeye was around 1,800 lbs. Factor in the light weight rotary and I’ll guess that this car has a floppy bonnet, Jeff’s ride might weigh somewhere around 1,500 lbs. That is a pretty wicked power to weight ratio!
Sit back, crank the volume and hold on to the chair.
