This year the all-new Top gear Live event offers a whole new experience with more exciting features than ever. One of them is this magnificent monster truck, called the Red Dragon.
Apart from the fact that it has a 1,308 bhp engine, this custom-built Ford 350 Super Duty Monster Truck also has an air-cannon mounted on the back that can fire a fridge-freezer 80 yards. Now that’s something Jeremy Clarkson himself would have designed!
The truck is powered by a supercharged, bespoke 9.5-litre Chevrolet engine, which delivers 1308bhp and an incredible 1,040lbs ft, and uses a gallon of methanol every every 50-60 yards. We’re more interested in that 600psi air cannon, which apparently can shoot any object weighing up to 650kilos. The guys can do some cool tricks with this thing.
Top Gear Live will be held on 11 – 13 November at NEC Birmingham and 24 – 27 November at ExCeL London. Other features of the show include Stig power laps and Star in a reasonably priced car as well as the Top Gear Stunt Team.
