The first road car that drove a quarter mile (402 meters) in less than six seconds was put up for sale. Drigster based on the 1998 Chevrolet S10 is listed as the first and only winner of the NHRA National Event competition with access to ordinary roads.
The car was built by racer Larry Larsson in 2014. The pickup is equipped with a 10-liter big block with an aluminum head of Proline Racing cylinders, two 98-mm Precision Turbo Gen 2 turbochargers and two fuel systems for the city and drag strips. The gearbox is a three-speed automatic “Rossler TH400” with Gear Vendors overdrive. Motor power – about 3000 horsepower.
In 2014, in a Street Car Super National competition, a pickup drove a quarter mile in 5.95 seconds. Speed at the finish line was 393.4 kilometers per hour. In 2015, the Chevrolet S10 with the result of 5.89 seconds was the fastest road car, and in 2017 won the Rocky Mountain Race Week.
In 2017, on the SEMA show, the tuning studio American Racing Header presented the Toyota Prius with a 6.2-liter engine from the Challenger SRT Hellcat. The unit is equipped with a Whipple supercharger and delivers 811 horsepower. A quarter mile Dragster travels in nine seconds.
