Using no jets and no special fuels, the company is attempting this feat in the Spectre SpeedLiner, a sleek missile-shaped speeder with an 8.8-liter Cadillac engine with a pair of intercooled 88 mm turbos good for close to 2000 HP. So while this isn't exactly, or even remotely, a street car, it is attempting to show just how far a gas-powered car can be pushed. We'll let you know when, or if, the record is made.


Godspeed.
