Because it's Monday: Let's Ride Along With This Custom AWD Racer as it Runs a Hillclimb

Do you remember the Last Call from this past Friday? It was a Hemi-powered old school dragster with an auxiliary engine powering its roots-type supercharger. Have you been wondering since then just what such a beast might sound like? Well, wonder no more. This is the Mannic-Beattie, a custom-built AWD special sporting a 1.7-litre Cosworth four with enhanced breathing made possible by a small gas turbine.
It was built by racer Nic Mann, and sends its estimated 600-bhp to all four wheels through a proprietary AWD system. How does it go? Like a bat out of hell. Here we can ride that bat along with Mann as he runs the Shelsley Walsh Speed Hillclimb in Worcestershire, England. The whole thing is over in just 25 seconds, but it’s estimated that he’s pulling 2gs off the line and maxed out at 140 miles per hour at the other end. Looks like the work that went into the Mannic-Beattie was well worth the effort.

    Glad I am that such things are still ‘allowed’.
    There is still hope for civilization.
