If you ask someone to name a Chevrolet car that delivers more than 500 hp, we bet they’ll tell you “Corvette!”. But oh boy, they sure would be wrong! Because a team from Fourdin Auto Sport, led by Yves Fourdin, have created this monster, a Chevrolet Matiz powered by a 505 hp 7.0 liter V8 engine from the Corvette Z06 (come to think about it, those people saying Corvette wouldn’t be so wrong). We have no idea how they managed to fit the V8 into the little Matiz or how the car doesn’t take off, but one thing’s for sure, the Matizilla goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.94 seconds and up to a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph).

The racing car, which was finished in August 2008, has been homologated and is currently on display at the International Racing Show Liège in Belgium. One more photo and a short video of the car unleashed on the Monza race track in Italy, after the jump.
