Blastolene B-702

Blastolene B-702

You’re looking at $475K worth Blastolene B-702 built by Blastolene Brothers of course [sold at  Barrett-Jackson]. These are the same guys that built Jay Leno’s Blastolene Special. This custom hot rod is 200 feet long [±6m] and nearly 9 feet wide [±2.7]. It is powered by 700 cubic V12 GMC truck heart back from 60s mated to a Allison 4-speed gearbox. You can’t say it has very unique design having in mind custom Streamliner or Auburn cars, but it is seriously respectful peace of art.
