This Oldsmobile Has 5,000 HP And Is Somehow Still Street Legal


In the conversation about muscle cars, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme of the 70s and 80s will always be included. Especially if it passes through the hands of Hurst Performance. Hurst/Olds 1984 is one of the best examples out there, and that’s what we have here, featured by YouTube Hoonigan.

But if the Olds above doesn’t look familiar to you, that’s to be expected as it’s a highly modified example called witch. How modified, you ask? Well, it can now produce over 5,000 horsepower with the right fuel – far more than the old Hurst muscle car could. Now claiming the title of the fastest tram in America.

We mention “proper fuel” because that amount of power can be achieved when the Sorceress is fed with methanol. As it turns out, this car can even digest 88 octane gasoline but of course the output will not be the same.

Powering this Oldsmobile is a V8, complete with a pair of 110mm turbochargers and a 2.5-inch primary. The engine bay looks crazy, with the stainless steel hardware polished to look nickel plated. Even the way the clamshell hood opens electronically looks like a work of art.

If you haven’t noticed, most of the Sorceress’ exterior is made of carbon fiber, so it’s definitely lightweight. This allows the car to run up to 260 miles per hour (418 kilometers per hour) in a quarter mile, finishing in about six seconds. It’s even faster than Bugatti.

A lot has changed from this 1984 Hurst from when it was bought new by its owners, but one thing remains – it’s still its daily driver. Yes, regardless of the amount of horsepower it has, it’s street legal. How cool is that?
