nice car heres some pics of it

,

,

,

powered by a 29 litre WWII M47 Patton tank engine, hence the name, obviously.

This gigantic engine puts out 1600 bhp @ 2800 rpm and 1600 ft lbs of torque at 2400 rpm. All this power is run through an Allison HD4060 6 speed automatic gearbox, giving the 9 tonne Tank Car a 0-60 sprint time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph.
