posted in: Hot Rod | 0

Remember the Blastolene Special owned by Jay Leno? Well, there’s one more Blastolene car – 1952 Blastolene Indy Special. This time they took air-colled M47 Patoon tank engine (12cyl 29.3 liter; 1200 horses at 2800 rpm) and built an awesome aluminum 21.5 feet long body around it. The amazing hot rod features Allison 4-speed transmission, hydraulic disc brakes from a diesel truck. It took 6 years to build this 3810 kg monster.

The idea behind this rod was to emulate the Indy 500 cars that were racing during 1950s. Price: $400k
