The word 'supercar' brings to mind some superlative examples of innovation and craftsmanship: Corvette Z06, Dodge Viper, Porsche 911, Ferrari F430. Most people certainly wouldn't classify a Volvo 740 wagon in the 'supercar' category. With the right modifications, however, anything is possible. These insane engine modifications turn run-of-the-mill stationwagons into (relatively) budget-friendly sleeper supercars.
