Video: 2400 horsepower 1963 Corvette Stingray!

This a story about a man called Rod Saboury who spent 7 odd years to make this, a 2400 horsepower Stingray which goes from 0 to 60 in one second! and does quarter mile in 6.95 seconds at 210.54 mph! It is worth all the efforts. Amazingly they say it is street legal. It even has power windows and cup holders!!

The power actually comes form a small-block Chevy V8 built by Moran Engines which has been turbocharged to reach the unbelievable 2400 hp. Of course that is achieved not by standard fuel, but it can do 10 miles to the gallon when it runs on pump gas. The engine has so much torque that it lifts the front of the car from the ground when it launches in a dragstrip and two big parachutes need to be deployed in order to stop it.

So there you go! Fastest street legal car in the world, if you can find anyone who dare to test its top speed! Watch the video above if you are interested in more details.
