There comes a moment in many people's lives where the sporty two-seater or the fiery hot hatch has to make way for something more, ahem, practical.
That moment is typically when children enter the fray and lifelong petrolheads realise that it's going to cost too much money to keep the old Jag running or the MX-5 in tax discs.
Out comes the laptop, up pops Auto Trader and the dreaded words 'people carrier' are typed into the search bar.
It is at this point that most resign themselves to a lifetime of drudgery, boring days out, wipe-down interiors, screaming passengers and beige paintjobs... but help is at hand.
Take this Ford Galaxy, which has been handily upgraded by Killer Racing Race Developments, for example. A ridiculous 2.5-litre Duratec engine from a Ford Focus RS takes pride of place under the bonnet and a bonkers green paintjob ensures it stands out from the crowd of dull MPVs.
Flame-spitting twin tailpipes at the rear ensure fellow motorists don't attempt to steal that coveted parking spot right outside the school gates and 'slammed' suspension allows for easier access to the rear of the vehicle – perfect for tiny-legged toddlers.
