Lightbulb Video: Mercedes-Benz B55 does the burnout we've been waiting for

Filed under: Etc., Europe, Videos, Hatchback, Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz B55 - Click above to watch video after the jump

When Mercedes-Benz first dropped word that a team of enterprising individuals had wedged a kicking Silver Arrow V8 under the hood of the company's diminutive B-Class hatch, we immediately began searching around for a video of the machine in action. Now the German automaker has been so kind as to supply just such a clip. While we'd love to see the little five-door lift a leg around a proper road course (Nürburgring?), for now we'll have to settle for a shot of the steroid-riddled commuter lighting up its rear tires in grand fashion.

As you may recall, the B55 was created by trainees at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt. With 385 horsepower borrowed from an E-Class and about as much weight as a box of tissues, this creation ought to go like stink. Hit the jump to check out the action for yourself. Now we just have to wait and see whose palms we have to grease to be able to plop ourselves behind the wheel for a spell.
