Watch This 450HP Minivan Embarrass a Nissan GT-R and Viper
This is a 1993 Eagle Summit. As minivans go, it is not terribly well remembered, but then again this is one you’ll have a hard time forgetting. It would appear to be your average ‘90s runabout, until you lift up the hood and find a turbocharged Mitsubishi 4G63 engine. It’s the same engine that gave the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo its legendary status, and underneath the Eagle it wallops an alleged 450 horsepower, put to the ground through the Summit’s all-wheel drive system. It’s the pride of one Leon Reitman, and its performance is becoming something of an Internet sensation. Take a look. RELATED: Check Out Mitsubishi's Aggressive Evo Concept for Gran Turismo
In the first eighth mile bout against a Nissan GT-R, the Eagle minivan shimmies, shakes, and launches like a rocket. The GT-R either stumbled or had a mechanical issue, because it frankly wasn’t even close. The Summit then pounces on a Dodge Viper too, running 12.4 seconds through the quarter mile to the Viper’s 13.2, then repeating it once again with a solid 12.3 second pass.
Reitman’s minivan first raised some eyebrows back in 2012 when it ran 12.5 and 12.6 second passes against a Toyota Supra and Ford Mustang. In April of this year, the Eagle Summit made lunch of another Viper, running 12 seconds flat and then an even more impressive 11.6 second pass.
Does it get any better than a plebeian five-door beating up on sports car royalty?
