Have you heard of the expression ‘has thrown everything except the kitchen sink’? Well, the Red Dragon can probably ‘trow’ that and much, much more. This custom-built Ford 350 Super Duty Monster Truck which a truly monstrous 1,300 horsepower and comes complete with an air-cannon mounted on the back that can fire a fridge.

Red Dragon was built by former European Monster Truck Champion, Rob Williams, and features a 9.5-liter supercharged Chevy V8 with 1,308 bhp. That level of power means it gets an estimated 50 to 60 yards per gallon. Meaning it’s about a thousand times less frugal than your average car

If you fancy the sights and sounds of massive power, big wheels and bizarre paintjobs, than this year’s all-new Top Gear Live is your best choice in the long Autumn months. The event is scheduled for November 11 to 13 at NEC Birmingham and November 24 to 27 at ExCeL London.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
