The GMC Syclone was the great muscle truck of the early ‘90s and anyone who spends the time rebuilding a restoring one of these rare classics deserves praise. Matt Quinn got his stolen instead.
Shaun Palmer, Olympic snowboarder, X-games champion, and "godfather of extreme sports" raced his heavily modified GMC Syclone up the 2003 Pikes Peak hillclimb. It was as badass as you thought it would be.
At one time, the GMC Syclone was rumored to be faster than the Viper, Corvette, and even a Ferrari. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe pickup is still plenty fast, but will its price make you say what the truck!?
Check out this Japanese television clip where a guy in a GMC Typhoon smokes an Acura NSX with an automatic and comes close to beating a twin-turbocharged Toyota Supra. 0-to-60 MPH was 5.3 seconds. Yeah, it's fast.
