This isn't your typical tuning job because chances are you haven't seen a classic Jeep Willys powered by a V8 LSX engine delivering around 304 bhp at the wheels. The heavily modified Jeep will receive further tuning this summer, highlighted by a Nitrous Express nitrous kit which will bump output to approximately 500 bhp (373 kW).

In its current configuration, the jeep weighs 1,886 lbs (855 kg) with the driver included and has managed to win several drag races against GT500s. There are some problems with the windscreen as at about 120 mph (193 km/h) it heavily vibrates but it's understandable taking into account the Willys wasn't built for speed.
