Was expecting a ride. But it just sits there.

That was really interesting. I wish he had been asked who built the engine. Not everyone can build one to that level of power.
Super duper!

That wasn't the car I expected.
But neat.

Interesting, very nicely done. Does anyone know the owner or the car? The interviewer didn't seem too sharp on the workings of a car though, more about the name brands than what was in front of him performance wise. Thanks for posting , Bill.

I saw this car at zone meet in Palm Springs last fall. Amazing build.

Thanks for the post. As the only one who has driven all three of the 200+mph B'ville Avantis it is always a treat to see someone is still actively doing something with the ol' things! I'll send the link to Jim Lange who will find it interesting.

Given it takes 600 plus hp to make one go 200mph at B'ville (@4250 ft elevation) I suspect even at Denver's higher altitude they are a bit optimistic on their 27 pounds of boost hp, especially given they figured they'd just do a tad over 200 at sea level with a bit lower boost. But, excellent, nevertheless.
