The Yannick Sire Priapism is a hot rod creation that came from the mind of Yannick Sire from Sire Custom Performance. It was created out of the boredom Sire had for the cars he saw coming in and out of his shop. The Priapism takes bare bones approach with just about everything except the engine. It is powered by two Chevrolet V8 engines fitted with hydraulic roller cams and AFR heads. This setup allows the hot rod to produce a total of 900 HP. Power, coupled with the fact that the hot rod weighs 2,307 lbs, allows the Priapism to hit a top speed of 211 mph, matching that of the Lamborghini Reventon.
There’s an old saying that states, "If you want something done right, do it yourself." While the millions of people that have uttered that phrase a time or two mostly do it when co-workers screw something up or when something at home goes array, Yannick Sire of Sire Performance Custom Performance in Inglewood, CA meant it on a much bigger scale. He didn’t want to provide better landscaping or execute a perfect parallel parking job; he wanted to build a car. And not just any car, he wanted to build the perfect hot rod. A few years - and some spare parts and elbow grease - later, Sire had hand built himself a car that he felt earned the name of Priapism.
Priapism is actually a medical condition that was named after the Greek god Priapus who was known for his disproportionately large and permanent erection. Go ahead and look it up; you know you want to. But whatever its name translates into, the Sire Priapism has got some balls in the form of two Chevrolet 350 small block engines producing a total of 1000 HP. Adding that power to a comfortable 2,370 lbs car gave Sire a hot rod worth getting into.
