  • Fast and Furious Cars in the world

    Custom built ramp car

    What car can zooms around at impressive speeds and flips other cars to their demise? Why, this bare bone steel cage menace on four wheels of course. This go cart looking ramp car uses the same 6.2 liter LS3 V8 from the GM Performance catalog that McCarthy has installed in other vehicles for the film. Rated at 430 horsepower, this cage on wheels has more than enough juice to zoom around and leave the other cars spinning literally spinning in the air. As if the crazy cage design was not enough, the LS3 is mounted backward in the ramp car which sends power into a GM Turbo 400 three speed automatic transmission that in turn churns a Casale V drive gearset that s mounted just behind the driver. The V drive reverses the power flow so a small driveshaft can then feed the rear axle. Furious design? You bet.
