That looks more like a V24, count the exhaust pipes, 12 a side.

And it is a badly built crock of shit that isn't tuned properly. Listen to it, that motor never runs 'clean'  the whole time.

Worse still, if it ever did put out 1500HP those tyres would get ripped to shreds.

And I love the way the water hose explodes at the end! Use good quality parts idiot!

I actually like stupid vehicles, but only when they work properly.

This is what would go well in a vehicle project, Leyland L 60, 12 cyclinder 2 stroke diesel, I have base repaired/rebuilt 27 of these in total, they have a Rootes supercharger fitted to pump out 850 horses, very rapid throtle take up.

 

Total cost for one rebuild was 144,000 quid of the taxpayers money.

Do you think that in 1908 when Henry Ford introduced his first model T,  He could belive in that 2019 Some Cars would be able to reach speeds over

300 mph  with more than 1500 horse power ?
