Imagine yourself driving a car that can launch off of a stand-still position and hit 60 mph in just 1.6 seconds yet is only geared to do 132 mph. You can’t imagine it, can you?

Well, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and this is living proof of that. ’This’, of course, is this car. It looks like a Toyota Tacoma, only it’s not. Built using a chrome-molly tubular space frame chassis that’s covered in a carbon fiber body, this car actually has some ridiculous power under its hood in the form of a 2.1-liter, four-cylinder, turbo-charged engine that produces around 1,000 horsepower. But as we’ve said, it’s top speed - 132 mph - isn’t really something you can brag about.

And just to show you how incredibly difficult this race car/truck is to drive, check out the video of the car being driven by Rod Millen - yeah, he’s the proud daddy of Rhys Millen - at the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed and watch how he can’t seem to fully corral it from going into the grass and do all that twitching. And this guy is a seasoned pro. Imagine if it was somebody who had the equivalent driving skills of an everyday Joe.

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

hmm. The horsepower of this car seems to be powerful though its top speed is kind of depressing! I think with the powerful engine of this car I have a feeling that they can remove the speed limit of this car.

I don’t know if the driver is trying to revolutionized the car and hitting the accelerator pad too much to make this car run like hell because I think the sound of its engine seems to be shabby!

No way! This can’t really be a Toyota. They don’t have any race vehicles according to the comments you all post every single time a Toyota or Lexus is mentioned on here.

To handle that monster on a damp twisting course commands respect. The way it weaved from side to side slowing down passing the finishing line was incredible.

Is this event being televised at all in the US?

I thought the car is going to crash! Excellent speed and it is definitely amazing!

I’m pretty sure that kind of power is uncontrollable. Isn’t that amazing that the driver still managed to gain control of the car.
