Because a Continental V-12 out of a Patton tank just isn't enough power for Jay Leno, he sent the car formerly known as the Blastolene Special off to Gale Banks for some honking turboage. As we mentioned previously, the freshly uprated monster roadster will be unveiled at the Woodward Dream Cruise later this month. However, Iowahawk — sneaky devil that he is — infiltrated Banks' facility last week and captured this video of the beast being fired up. Mash play and be amazed.
