Check this, Fastest Accelerating Machines In the World, 11000 HP Pure Power!!!
These things are the pinnacle of engineering when it comes to a four wheeled vehicle accelerating from a standstill towards the finish line that is a quarter mile away.
Yes, we did call them things because these cannot really be called cars, even though the class is called Funny Cars, but the reality is that these are purposely built machines, engineered with the sole purpose of racing, and zero compromise or usability for anything else.
Over the years the horsepower had kept climbing and these days they are pushing out incredible numbers, or to be more precise around 11 000 horsepower, now that is one crazy number that no car has been even close to.
If by any chance you have never witnessed such a spectacle in real life, we urge you to do so as soon as possible because the sheer violence of these engines at full chant is something that words cannot describe, but in the meantime, check out this great video, and make sure you turn the spekers up.
