Year(s): 1988

To put into context how incredible this car was, consider the following. This Sledgehammer was built in 1988 with an engine built by legendary 'Vette tuner John Lingenfelter, putting down over 900 horses and the ability to hit an astounding, pants-wetting 254.7 mph top speed. It would take 22 years for a car, the Bugatti Veyron, to exceed that speed.
