This guy in Britain has a street legal car that's got a 9.3 litre V8 turning out 2200 horses.

Ron Patrick's street legal jet-powered VW Beetle seems to pale in comparison.

i've seen cars with similiar numbers in the Detroit area, i wouldn't call them "street legal", but they're driven nevertheless.

It might be a record setting car in GB, but there are cars here in the US that will beat it. Although, the term "street car" is used loosely.

I think that its kinda funny that the website that video is on messed up the name of the car. Its not a "Voxel Victor", its a "Vauxhall Victor".

Voxel is how I heard it pronounced in the UK. "Vox-hall" got the .

It looked like they only got it street legal because of its age. 1974 car, was built before and engine regulations.

It ran a 7.8 which is damn fast, but ive seen home builders here in FL run 8's in old hopped up 5.0L stangs.
