Strongman Franz Müllner holds back Mustang GT500

You can always count on the National Geographic to provide you we’ve some never-before-seen footage of some of the most amazing things you’ll ever see. In its show “Humanly Impossible”, Nat Geo tries to bring in people that can perform what are supposedly ‘humanly impossible’ feats to show that there’s no such thing as impossible.

In this video, Austrian strongman Franz Müllner tries to hold back aFord Mustang GT500 with the resulting smoke emanating directly into his face. Incidentally, this isn’t the first time Müllner has tried to hold back a car; he’s actually done it before with a Lamborghini Diablo where he set a world record time of seven seconds.

Check out the video to see if Müllner was able to break his own record as he tries to keep the Mustang GT500 from escaping his mammoth strength.

I don’t really know if I can believe that video. I mean for all we know the car might have been on hand brakes or something. Anyhow, I don’t really see on how hundreds of horsepower and thousands of torque engine car can be held back by one man power. Mmmm. Pretty interesting eh.

Well, maybe there were some alterations with the car tires. I mean that much power to be held back by that man? Seems impossible. I mean a man can only lift a certain amount of weight and such drag can produce a lot of weight.

@CollinGronholmn: maybe the mustang is only on factory custom, though this mustang is with the original engine and it’s insanely fast.

that’s what we call a man and a muscle car power. This man is amazing! He can stop the powerful engine of Ford Mustang.

Wow, that surely is a strong guy. I mean how much power does a Lamborghini Diablo has? How much power does the GT500 have? I wonder if he can hold a Veyron as well?
