Jeep Willys with LSX V8 Smokes Corvette ZR1 and Honda CBR 600

Last time we wrote about the LSX-powered Jeep Willys, the thing had about 300 WHP, but now it’s back with a Nitrous shot! The clip below shows the V8 madness taking on a Corvette ZR1, a second-gen Porsche Cayman R and a Honda CBR 600.

The video shows the Willis racing the Cayman R and the ZR1 without its nitrous and there are two conclusions here. First of all, the Porsche owner was left wishing for a handling course and secondly, the ZR1 driver isn’t the fastest launcher - there are a few clutch-related questions to be asked here, but we won’t go into that area.

The next morning, the LSX-powered Willis returns on Nitrous and basically smokes all three other contenders. However, the ZR1 seems to be ready to pass the Jeep once they get up to massive speed, but the footage stops at that point.

As everybody on Youtube pointed out, a rollcage, and perhaps some proper racing seats for the Jeep wouldn’t be a bad idea.
