Thereā€™s something exceptionally intense about hillclimb racing. The angry automotive sounds smashing natureā€™s solitudeā€“ itā€™s all very dramatic in a ā€œman versus natureā€ kind of way. This car takes that to a new level though.

What youā€™re seeing and hearing here is a mind-bendingly aggressive run by driver Roger Feghali in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI, which is basically sucking down fuel and gasoline like itā€™s going out of style to make that terrific noise and ascent velocity.

Feghaliā€™s Facebook page says this run was a new lap record at 1:28.55 at the Arsoun Hill Climb in Lebanon.
