I was too busy examining considerably less powerful race cars last weekend at Michigan’s Gingerman Raceway to track down the owner of this fine machine and ask the many questions it inspired. Just one glance at the engine, however, tells us a terrifying/awe-inspiring power-to-weight story.
It appears to be a homebuilt, mid-engined creation with a straight-outta-the-junkyard GM LS V8 being force-fed nearly enough boost by a very large turbocharger. Yes! It was seriously quick around the track, of course, and it never once flew off into the woods while backwards and on fire.
Note the gratifying lack of prettification and Soviet-tractor-grade sturdy structure. How much do you suppose the parts for this monster cost? Probably much less than a Spec Miata… and there must be some states that would grant it license plates. One can only hope.
