The Hottest Truck on the Highway

This hot lorry called Shockwave is the world’s fastest jet-powered truck.
Shockwave produces 36,000 horsepower, weighs four tons and can cover a quarter of mile in 6.5 seconds.

The owner, Neal Darnell, said: “It’s an awesome experience. You won’t believe it until you see it.”

Equipped with three Pratt & Whitney J34-48 engines from US Navy jets each one generates 12,000 horsepower, burning approximately 680 litres of fuel in each performance.

“On acceleration, the driver experiences about 6G. We stop it by using two 40cm ring slot military parachutes, which produce an impact of up to negative 9G. It is some ride.” said Mr Darnell’s son, Chris.
