MTV’s Pimp My Ride will unveil a modified 1965 Chevrolet Impala, nicknamed the "Bio Rocket," that has been transformed into a biodiesel-powered alt-fuel wonder.

The Bio Rocke is powered by a new PPE supercharged GM Duramax diesel engine that runs on B-100 biodiesel. The original engine had an output of 350 hp, but with the new engine it goes up to 800 hp and 1400 lbs-ft. The Bio Rocket sprints from zero to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds.

"By installing a monster 800-horsepower diesel engine to run on biodiesel in the ’65 Impala, we demonstrated that you don’t have to sacrifice power to go green," said Beau Boeckmann, Galpin Auto Sports’ president.

I saw this episode, and and what they did to the impala really rocks. For me restoring vintage cars really rocks though more expenssive in buying a new one.
