AMS Mitusbishi Lancer Evolution VIII Makes 1130 HP

AMS claim this is the world's most powerful Evo, and they've got the dyno sheets to back it up. This Mitsubishi monster supposedly makes 1130 HP, and that's not at the flywheel, but at the wheels. And we're told it's "true" power, no nitrous-oxide assistance, just a motor built up big as can be and 51 PSI of boost. With all that power sent to four wheels, this thing just wants to jump right off the chassis dyno. This begs the obvious question — what kind of acceleration should you expect? How about a 1/4-mile run of 8.56-seconds at about 170 MPH. But don't think this was all some crazy JDM tuning. Nope, this car lives in the one and only true land of excessive power — the good ol' US of A.

@Dr. Spaceman:

Friday night and the lights they glow

Looking out for the time to go

Where they tune the right numbers, getting in the swing

You come in to shift like a king

Anybody could be that guy

Night is young and the revs are high

With a shit load of boost, everything is fast

You're in the mood for a dyno dance

And when you get the chance...

You are the dyno queen, young and sweet, a tuner's wet dream

Dyno queen, feel the beat from the blown up machine

You can rev, you can drive, having the time of your life

See that car, watch that scene, diggin' the dyno queen
