A 630 horsepower V8...skateboard? [video]

A 630 horsepower V8...skateboard? [video]

Here's a video of, well, basically a V8 engine bolted to a large skateboard.

The 630 bhp (470 kW) V8 engine is attached to what looks like a snowboard on karting wheels in the video. It is called simply Tony Hawk's V8 skateboard. Watch and learn.

This is the work of Tony Hawk and this project will be shown at the upcoming V8 Supercars race in Sydney, Australia which takes place December 3rd to the 5th. Hawk is a professional skateboarder who has his own video game series.

It's also funny to see the test rider/driver Joel identified as the 'human crash test dummy' in the video and talking about how his wife isn't too crazy about the idea. Really?
