1,000bhp Jeep Can’t Contain Its Own Fury

1,000bhp Jeep Can’t Contain Its Own Fury

Why bother with a £1million+ hypercar when you can get just as much performance out of something much, much cooler.

This may look like your average WWII-era Willys Jeep, but – in the typical Yankee style of overdoing things – it’s got a huge V8 engine that’s been supercharged and NOS’d up to 1,000bhp. Bugatti who?

Check out what happens in the video below. Hats-off to the driver for keeping his potent steed the right way up.
