Powered by 1.000bhp supercharged V8 from a drag car, this near 1.300kg trike is said to be capable to reach 321km/h. Its owner, Tim Cotterrill, who commissioned the machine to his own design from the same company that made Jay Leno's tank car, has only mustered the balls to hit 257km/h though. Should he ever reach Vmax, there's a parachute on-board for extra braking.

THE REAL THING is a short documentary Directed and Photographed by Julian Kingabout custom hot rod builder BODIE STROUD and his re-imagining of a classic Mustang by way of an extremely rare and powerful motor built specifically for legendary racer Mario Andretti's 1969 Can Am series race car.

The film follows the complex and creative build from its early stages, through its initial test drive all the way to an unveiling at the SEMA Car Show in Las Vegas where Bodie comes face to face with Mario Andretti himself.
