things got really serious when he added stickers


Meet Red Victor 1, the fastest accelerating street-legal car in the world. Based on a 1972 Vauxhall Victor, it rockets 0-60 mph in an astounding 1 second - on normal gas! For comparison purposes, a Ferrari Enzo takes 3.3 seconds, a McLaren reqires 3.4 and a Saleen S7 3.3.

The 9.3 liter, twin-turbo V-8 produces 2200 hp and screams through the quarter mile in 7.8 seconds. And, the best part is that it was all built by one man in his garage. Serious speed has a serious price: about $180,000 in parts, not to mention thousands of hours of Andy Frost’s time, and about 5 mpg at the pump.

Excellent blog and thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts here. I am putting together a collection of photos and information on Ferrari and so far I managed to cover some of the models, and you will find some cool Ferrari 250 GTO photos, Ferrari F50 wallpapers and high resolution Ferrari Enzo photos. I hope you’ll find the website to be interesting, in case you want to pay it a visit.

Enjoy your day!
