The Bandag Bullet Drag Racing Truck

The Bandag Bullet is officially the world's fastest diesel powered vehicle over the quarter mile.
Frank Gaffiero pilots the Bandag Bullet, and as crowds all over Australia have seen, he swings the truck around with finesse and has no qualms about doing huge donuts up and down an entire dragstrip.

This insane truck is powered by a Detroit Diesel V16-92 with 4 turbochargers, 2 superchargers and nitrous!
The Bullet will accelarate from 0-200km/h in just 12 seconds, and has a top speed of over 320km/h!

The Bandag Bullet is a real crowd pleaser. With all that torque pushing through massive truck retreads, the combination of flames from the four turbos' dump pipes and insane amounts of smoke pouring from the four rear tyres is a sight to behold.
