The Bandag Bullet
The Bandag Bullet is the world’s fastest truck, after blasting down the runway at the Queensland International airshow in July 2005, smashing the world record for a one kilometre run.
The 24 litre (1500 cubic inch) Bullet is powered by two V8 92 series engines linked together, with two superchargers and four turbochargers. When injected with nitrous oxide, the power is boosted to 2800 horsepower.
The truck weighs 8 tonnes and has around 5600 ft/lb of torque. It set the record for a conventionally powered truck, reaching an average speed of 182.14 km/h, and a calculated terminal speed of 305.5 km/h- to cover the standing kilometre in 19.6 seconds.
