"Hate Tank" Roadrunner is One Mean-Looking Dragster

Aggressive by design and power, the Roadrunner is still subjected to restomoding and race-prepping. But while some like it in its classic paint-schemes, others would rather turn the Hemi-powered vehicle into an even more scary beast.

The latest such piece of machinery to show up at the drag strip is the "Hate Tank", an all-black chuck of metal that's so powerful it can barely handle the asphalt under its wheels. And that's what we concluded by watching the video posted below, because the owner declined any info on the car's engine or horsepower figures.

Thankfully enough, the car looks so mean and sounds so cool that we don't even care. Just scroll below to find out for yourself.
