What is the weirdest possible car you can think of turning into a racer? Okay, keep that in mind, now let’s consider what has been turned into a racing car. Chances are, some of them are weirder, or, what you’ve thought of is on this list.

We kicked off with none a Spa 24 hour-competing, fire-spitting, roll cage-equipped… people carrier. Yes, the Peugeot 806 of the 1995 Spa 24 Hours. You know what, it was competitive, too. Then of course, there’s the rally-prepped Rolls-Royce Corniche, of all things. Joining it and the big family Pug are Smarts, Skodas and even a Ssangyong… Buckle up for a weird ride…

Now then, we challenge you to share with us a weirder car that’s been committed to racing. Honestly, we don’t think you’ll top this list...
