Petrol is edging closer to £2 a gallon and the government are looking at alternative fuels, so what better to bring a smile to your face than the sound of a supercharged 1.0-litre Austin Metro.

Probably the most unlikely car to receive the supercharger treatment, after all apart from the wild Group B MG Metro 6R4, the rest of the Metro range was considered a bit rubbish.
