Ecotec-powered dragster claims new four-cylinder world record with quarter mile run of 71 seconds

Posted on by

Eight-cylinder powered cars have always been favoured by drag racers, but with environmental requirements seemingly getting stricter and stricter by the day, more efficient engines are being developed. If the following video is to be believed, a new four-cylinder powered dragster has reportedly smashed all previous world records, completing the quarter-mile sprint in just 6.71 seconds at 206 mph.

The world record was achieved at the Napierville Dragway in Canada and was reportedly created by Nicholas Brunet with an advanced 2.0-liter GM Ecotec engine launching the dragster down the drag strip in a time the vast majority of eight-cylinder powered cars would be proud of.

In order to mark this momentous occasion, an array of camera angles were captured showcasing the numerous runs. Despite the fact that the record has yet to be verified by anybody, such as Guinness Book of World Records, we definitely don’t need confirmation to know that this is one extremely fast racer.

Second and third videos can be seen after the jump!
