The name pretty much says it all. Speed Demon. You’re not going to pull any muscles trying to figure what the vehicle is for and what it represents.

The vehicle was the creation of George Poteet and Ron Main, two people that had one objective for the project. They wanted to build a car that can go where few people have gone before: 400 mph.

The intimidating name of the vehicle comes as a result of having a 347- cubic-inch V8 engine that’s combined with a pair of Turbonetics "Demon" turbochargers to produce an output of 2,200 horsepower. Yikes.

So after months and months of testing and development, the team went to the Bonneville Salt Flats to give the Speed Demon a shakedown of a lifetime. With Poteet behind the wheel, the Bonneville Blown Fuel Streamliner known as the "Speed Demon" proceeded to run an astonishing 426 mph.

Even better, Poteet was able to capture his run on video, which will show you exactly what it feels like to travel at such ridiculous speeds.

Full details behind the machine have yet to be revealed by Poteet and Main, apparently because their site isn’t updated yet. Nevertheless, there are plenty of photos and videos you can look at to learn more about the Speed Demon.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The deliver power output of the car is certainly awesome. That’s a quite figure performance from the vehicle. I just remember the Bird man on this one.
