Owned by the popular and charasmatic American chat show
host, Jay Leno, the 'Tank Car' is one of the most powerful
cars on the planet.
The Blastolene Special, built by Randy Grubb, is powered
by a 29 litre WWII M47 Patton tank engine, hence the name,
This gigantic engine puts out 1600 bhp @ 2800 rpm and
1600 ft lbs of torque at 2400 rpm. All this power is run
through an Allison HD4060 6 speed automatic gearbox, giving
the 9 tonne Tank Car a 0-60 sprint time of 6.2 seconds
and a top speed of 140 mph.
