Brimstone Quadracycle: 750 HP V8-Powered Hell Sled

Image for article titled Brimstone Quadracycle: 750 HP V8-Powered Hell Sled

There are dumb bad ideas, dangerous bad ideas, and bad ideas that are staggering achievements of genius. The Brimstone Quadracycle is the latter. A custom-built, four-wheeled motorcycle with a V8 cranking out up to 750HP. It'll even tow a trailer.


Within 2.8 seconds of laying the throttle wide open, you're already at 60 MPH. Leave it there another 3.2 seconds and you're in felony territory at 120 MPH. This is the kind of thing a 455 cubic inch V8-equipped, 750 HP Brimstone Quadracycle is capable of. Oh sure, you can get a more pedestrian 427 CI V8 with only 300 HP, but we're really only arguing over degrees of lethality.

Living somewhere between motorcycle, automobile and methamphetamines of dubious hill-country origin, the Quadracycle doesn't mess around with bullshit like seat belts and roll cages, it's you and a saddle, against that aluminum V8, a GM 700R4 and four wheels. The term "batshit crazy" comes to mind.

This may be even crazier than the current king of stupid, the Boss Hoss. At least with the Hoss, the ever present danger of dropping the thing in a gravel corner is in the back of your mind. Here you're reassured by static stability, four contact patches, lower seating and no chance to spill, things which will inevitably result in napalm insanity.

As an ex-two wheel rider.

Must. Have.

Just 'cause I know if I get on two wheels, again, there will be a day when I hesitate to make a gut decision due to not having 100% knowledge of what led to a prior outcome, and said hesitation results in my death, does not mean I no longer have a need...a need for speed.

/found the tires on the E320 are balanced decently enough for 95 MPH yesterday, in no traffic, on the way to work (gotta love holidays!).

Plus, the screwed together bones are not likely able to hold a 700+ lb. go-fast machine upright, if I get it even slightly off-balance at a light...and I can't live with that.

Mr. Leno likely has one on order. A weekend show in Vegas will pay for it, no problem.
