Not a car per se, but the biking fraternity may enjoy this one. Some guy took a Yamaha TW200 and fitted it with a 400cc diesel engine from a generator. From what I could tell, it has an electric starter. The engine alone is probably double the weight of the original engine + gearbox, so it probably needs the wider tyres of the TW200 donor bike:
