Tank Car

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, obviously.

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.
