The GMC Syclone was a badass truck. It was built in roughly 3,000 units for the 1991 model year and it was the quickest stock pickup truck in the world when it hit dealerships.
It came with all-wheel drive, turbocharged 4.3-liter V6 engine and a four-speed automatic, an output of 280 hp and 350 lb-ft of toque, meaning 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds and a quarter mile time of 13.6 seconds. How cool was that back in 1991?

Having a truck like this can mean loads of fun in the 21st century as well, but just picture the same vehicle having 500 horses under the hood. This vehicle actually exists. It’s called Psycho Syclone, sports all sorts of performance updates, a much needed manual transmission and looks ready to break the Pikes Peak Hillclimb truck record.

The vehicle belongs to Adam Auerbach and was featured in one of Drive’s recent videos. Just scroll below to see it in action.
