The guy who owns it is a member of this board, but I can't recall his nic. Isn't it great that with a 'mere mortal' amount of money, you can build a Supercar in your driveway, with just aptitude and tools ?

You weren't at the HGH meeting where he showed up? :(
Hahaha, imagine bein' one of the poor souls who had to park next to him at a carshow. ;)

I got to drive next to him for a 1/10th of a second, before he rev'ed, tires broke completely loose for who knows how long and then he took off like a rocket in front of me. I wet my pants. :turbonaug

It is a 2005 - the single exhaust is because of the turbo.

At least, the guy at the beginning of the video said it is a 2005.

Anybody want a ride?
For clarification, its definitely an '04 but with an LS2 block-based stroker. Also that 0-60 number of 4.8 sec is deceiving. It comes from the one standing mile run that was made, the same one you see in the video. As you can tell, he's really not driving it for acceleration times but was concentrating on the top speed. Believe me, 0-60 is quite a bit faster even on street tires. With a 3.07 gear and a Viper T56, it'll hit very close to 60 in first gear.
BTW, its making 775rwHP and 800rwtq on pump gas, street tuned and with methanol injection. Still does 25mpg at 75mph.

thats an awesome car but a bit to steep of pricing for what you get for $75,000

sure.

but the car was created for a "billboard" purpose. not many people are going to do up their goat exactly as motorsportstech has. it's a calling card to demo how far and deep into tuning they can take a car. that GTO will probably make rounds at SEMA shows, for example.

more than likely, it would be highly impractical for daily use. a car of that calibre is nearly too powerful for pubilc road use. you'd have your license revoked before long with that car.
