Together with the 88 mm turbine, the single-rotor motor gives an output of 1,000 horsepower. This is one of the extreme setups, with the engine that is running on M1 methanol. This racing fuel offers 99.95 minimum purity.
This Mazda, using a wheelie bar, can do the ¼ mile in 7.46 seconds at a speed of 181 MPH or 291.4 km/h. And that is not all.
Recently, the Mazda went into a battle with an epitome of a drag strip-destined muscle car. Here we are talking about the 1966 Pontiac GTO, and it uses a 10.35 liter or 632 CI V8 engine and a hefty dose of nitrous.
Can you believe that the Mazda manages to steal the crown of the GTO? At least, the difference of the time between these two cars is just as hilarious as the difference between the engines.
