Never heard of this, too bad Olds didn't have something like this in their closet.

Never heard of it. It looks like a Fierro on steroids.

Errr, pardon my ignorance but what would one do with it? It looks and reads like it is 1980's GM heavy, Not a good thing for a road racer. In stock form for me and you it is 200 hp about what my anemic 55 has now. The full power mode it should go fast straight line but what happens on the first corner, could be a surprise for that Faerie that is on your tail and about to pass.. I don't know where it fits in to the automotive picture, Drag racer maybe or just being cool going down the road on a Saturday night.. Probably not my cup of tea, but they don't make tea very often for curmudgeons like me..... Lost in the fifties..... Tedd

I agree Tedd, heres a quote from the article "This particular car is the prototype, making it even more rare than your standard Tojan. Itís powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine cranking out an unfathomable 800 horsepower. For a car from the í80s! Good Lord" Makes it even worse trying to keep on the road.
