We've seen some pretty absurd drag cars over the years, but this has got to be one of the most outrageous. It's a tube-frame front-wheel drive monster that has its longitudinally-mounted engine placed in front of the front wheels. It's mind-bendingly fast, and looks unlike anything else.
The car was originally built to race in the US under the NHRA's front-wheel drive Promod class, though it now competes in Brazil. 1320video caught up with the owner, who says the 2.2-liter Ecotec-powered car has set a personal best time of 7.2 seconds in the quarter-mile. That's extremely quick, especially for a car sending power to the front wheels.
The car sports body panels resembling a Chevy Cobalt SS, though because of its unorthodox drivetrain layout, has a comically elongated front end. It's able to go toe-to-toe with the rear-wheel drive cars in this video, and we bet it's a blast to drive.
