The SEMA show has brought us an infinity of custom goodies and some of these are more special than others. We’re here to zoom in on a creation that can literally move mountains: a powerplant that comes from Nelson Racing Engines.
We are talking about a V8 unit with a displacement of 10.4 liters, which uses a twin-turbo setup to deliver 1,420 hp and 1,400 lb-ft (1,896 Nm) of torque... on pump gas. Curious to see what happens when you fill the tank with race juice?

The output explodes to 2,332 hp and 2,100 lb-ft (2,844 Nm), a value that requires a rock-solid transmission.

The monstrous powerplant can be yours for $52,000 (EUR32,200 at the current exchange rates). In case you’re wandering is this is one of those projects that only sounds good on paper, we have to tell you that the company has a strong reputation for building monsters like this.
