I just saw this on the History Channel.

I recall reading and seeing a photo in one of my mags, but didn't know they made more than one and several have been purchased.
Another monster is a roadster that Jay Leno has. He purchased it with a M-47 Paton tank V-12 cyl gasoline engine. His shop did a engine workover putting in a Bosch electronic fuel-injection system and two turbochargers which boosted the output to close to 1600 horsepower with a little over 2000 lb.-ft of torque. Leno says he is happy the gas milage increased from 3 mpg to 6 mpg...what other auto engine can you double the gas milage with a little boost modification.
Says they have ran it at the GM proving grounds up to 145 mph, but at that speed, the car starts to walk around a little.
Leno wrote about his vehicle in the January 2007 issue of Popular Mechanics.
