10 Extreme Modified Vehicles When Mechanics Lose Their Minds

10 Extreme Modified Vehicles When Mechanics Lose Their Minds


From a nitro Hemi three-wheeler to a
truck so big it holds Four. We take a look at Ralph Lauren’s all black 1936
Bugatti type 5 7 SC Atlantic coupe. Globally recognized for his eponymous
fashion line Ralph Lauren is also an avid car collector with one of today’s
finest collections of vintage motors. Regarded as one of his favorites Ralph
Lauren’s all-black 1936 Bugatti type 5 7 SC Atlantic coupe is more of a
sculptural masterpiece than a purpose-built machine. Declared the most
beautiful car in the world by the man himself the cars monstrous frame
features exaggerated wheel arches, an aerodynamic coupe attachment with
ellipsoidal windows, and an extended bonnet design stereotypical of its era.
On top of it’s very obvious aesthetic charm the top 5 7sc Atlantic coupe
features an 8 cylinder engine, twin overhead camshafts, and is capable of
reaching speeds of 200 km/h. I’d like to take this time to give a shout out to
Kate’s face MM for suggesting this video idea. Blowing up the number 9 spot we
have a nitro Hemi 3 wheeler. This nitro Hemi 3 wheeler is a one-of-a-kind
vehicle that is sure to blow the mind of any car enthusiast. This 3 wheeler is not
only powerful, but it shoots flames from its exhaust in case anyone felt the need
to underestimate it. The body looks like a drag rail combined with an old
Cadillac and is powered by a massive 3,000 horsepower Hemi engine.
Unfortunately, it looks like this car has too much power for three wheels to
handle, but it is definitely fun to look at At number eight we have double trouble.
Gordon Tronsit unique 1927 Ford hot rod. Have you seen anything like this? I
know I haven’t. The owner is a die-hard hot rod lover by the name of Gordon
Tronsit, and if you’ve been watching our videos lately, you’ve probably heard his
name a time or two. This one-of-a-kind hot rod was built from scratch over a
six month period and it goes by the name of Double Trouble. Johnson came up with
the name as a reference to its twin engine setup. This beast has two aluminum
Ford 4.6 liter modular v8 racing engines with four custom-made superchargers that
can deliver over 1,200 horsepower. With its custom-built 1.5-inch tube chassis,
fiberglass 1927 Ford model body, nineties Corvette brakes and spindles, this unique
masterpiece is guaranteed to turn a lot of heads. Fighting its way to the number seven
spot, we have Piss’d Off Pete, a custom-built v12 hot rod by Randy Grubb.
From the creator of the Decoson, the Decoliner, the Blastolene Indy Special,
and many other famous cars. There now comes a creation called Piss’d Off Pete.
Designer and builder Randy Grubb had to make quite a few modifications in order
for Pete to become a celebrity like his older brother to Blastolene Special.
Blastolene became a celebrity in its own right when it fell under the
ownership of one Jay Leno, who is an avid car collector. Piss’d Off Pete also got a
taste of the celebrity life when it was featured in one episode of Jay Leno’s
Garage. The name comes from the cars stunning performance.
The engine is a Detroit Diesel v12, each cylinder is 71 cubic inches and has two
superchargers. Holding its own at number six we have a
1957 Chevy Pro Mod. When I played this video my wife and kids, and we’re all in
another room by the way, ask what in the world I was watching,
because the noise was so nasty. That’s what Jason Landsdown’s 383 Chevy powered
1957 Chevy Pro Mod sounds like. The whistling is like something you’d hear in a
b-movie or horror flick right before someone gets skewered by the bad guy.
We’ll also mention that the car is blindingly fast. Running some on the edge,
low four-second, eighth-mile runs, during the course of this video. We have heard
lots of supercharged cars over the years, hundreds even, and maybe more, but none of them have sounded like this one at idle. We’re not sure if it’s the throttle
blade adjustment that gives it the piercing sound, or what, either way, you
need to hear it and give us your theory about where that sound is emanating from.
Honestly, it sounds to me like the devil is playing the flute or something. Flying into the number five spot we have
the Dirty Bird, a 2600 horsepower Ford Falcon. The Dirty Bird is powered by
a seven-point-four liter Ford 449 cubic inch small block engine, with twin
88-millimeter turbos producing incredible 2600 horsepower, and all of
that power is connected to a Rossler two speed transmission. This 1968 Ford Falcon
owned by Jason Wade from Texas is dubbed The Dirty Bird for a good
reason. It flew the eighth-mile in just 4.7 seconds, posting an impressive speed
of 159.35 miles per hour, at the finish line. Washing over the number-4 spot we have
the “Carpool de Ville” a 1969 Cadillac Coupe that is indeed a carpool. This
vehicle gives a whole new meaning to the term carpool. The “Carpool de Ville” is a
car that was transformed into a hot tub. How crazy is that? Engineers Duncan
Forster and Phil Wacker actually managed to transform a 1969 Cadillac Coupe into
a functioning mobile hot tub.
The Carpool can hit speeds of 50 miles per hour
while full of water. The Cadillac uses its 472 cubic-inch v8
to heat the water to about 102 degrees. A pool pump and filter were also fitted
into the trunk of the car. The vehicle is based on a prototype which they created
while they were students in college. According to Forrester you haven’t
really lived until you’ve sat in a hot tub and watch the world roll by. Number
Three, the Welderup Diesel Rod. A totally custom 1928 Dodge Brothers sedan. This
sick rat rod, the Welderup Diesel Rod may be the coolest I’ve ever
seen. Obviously, rat rodders know a way to bring classic cars and some pretty
unique engines back from the grave. We’ve seen many awesome combinations before
but this particular rat rod is something else. The body is from a 1928 Dodge
Brothers 4-door sedan, although it has been completely altered
and welded in many places. The inline six-cylinder Cummins turbo diesel was
taken from a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 and cranks out an amazing 1270 foot-pounds
of torque and nearly 700 RW HP. If you’re having any doubts whether this thing can
carry such a heavy engine, no worries, Steve took care of everything.
Steve dug up the rods front axle from a coal mine truck, doors from a recycled
gold mine brass mesh, and dashboard from various old farm equipment. With a
staggering 11.18 seconds at 118 miles on the quarter-mile this is one of
the most wicked rat rods in the world, and believe us when we say that the
burnout in the video definitely won’t disappoint you. Taking over the number-two spot we have
Revelation, a smoking-hot 1967 Corvette by Goldman Kustoms. This Smokin-hot 1967
Corvette named Revelation was built by Mike Goldman and his team at Goldman
Kustoms. They have done an amazing job on this car. So good in fact that it won the 2015 Good Guys Street Machine of the year crown, in Columbus Ohio, at the 18th
PPG Nationals. Just look at that flat stinger hood and brushed nickel front
bumper. Hiding under that hood is a fabulous 427 v8 engine with a stacked
injection. Everything is smooth and molded, including the custom interior. The
forge line wheels and the chin spoiler, below the front bumper, give a modern
touch to the outside of the car. It ran an autocross lap in 40 2.4 seconds which
is one of the fastest times in the class. The end result is one amazing custom car. Owning the number one spot on this list
is the world’s biggest pickup truck, a 1950 Dodge Power Wagon, and I’m not
kidding. This is the world’s largest truck.
It’s a massive Dodge Power Wagon oil billionaires in the Middle East use
regular size power wagons while combing the desert and prospecting for oil. They
depended on them so much that one man in particular, Sheikh Hamad bin Hamden Al
Nahyan, known as “the Rainbow Sheikh” commissioned this giant truck in homage
to the cars that helped make him his fortune. It’s a sixty-four to one ratio
model of the original that’s so big it can hold four air-conditioned bedrooms, a
living room, bathroom, and a motorized tailgate, that turns into a Terrace. The truck weighs over 50 tons, and although it was not designed to hit the road, it
does come with a 300 horsepower GM diesel engine that helps it move around
on its own. That’s a good thing when you consider the size of the tow truck it
would take to move it around. Hey guys, this is amber and Alex from
