You can’t deny there are some seriously sick Monster Energy cars out there, so we’ve pulled together our wrap up of the most epic!
One of our top rides has to be the all-conquering Monster Energy 2018 Volkswagen Polo R WRX Supercar! This is arguably the most successful race car of the modern Rallycross era, boasting two drivers’ titles and two teams’ FIA World Championships on its racing CV, with the incredibly talented Johan Kristoffersson and Petter Solberg securing some ripper achievements driving this car. Honed, tuned and tweaked for increased speed, this machine pushes out an estimated 600bhp featuring an evolved drivetrain and running gear.
Another one of our all-time favourites was the World’s First Lamborghini Drift Car, unveiled by Monster Energy Japanese drift driver Daigo Saito back in 2015. With a 650 horsepower NA motor and AWD to RWD conversion, this legendary vehicle was 7 months in the making with the help of the renowned Liberty Walk team.
We can’t forget the reveal of the first Ford Mustang in full warpaint ahead of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. We were stoked to see the Mustang Supercar fired up in a race – it’s hard to deny it was the best-looking car on track decked out in Monster Energy colours!
One word: Hoonitruck. Ken Block’s epic 914 horsepower Ford F-150 Hoonitruck has tackled some seriously risky tracks. In 2019, Block and his Hoonitruck travelled to China for Climbkhana 2 and tackled Tianmen Mountain, one of the world’s most dangerous roads – he somehow almost made the drive look easy! Although we’ve got to admit, we’d still all dream about being able to drive this beast.
Down on the drag strip, you can’t look past the 10,000bhp Top Fuel Drag car driven by 23-year old Jndia Erbacher. This car is so epic from top to bottom – with a thundering throttle and 18.5 inch-wide rear tires, it can go from zero to over 300mph in a heartbeat. To put this into context, it swallows a whopping 42 litres of fuel per second
Those were some pretty hectic wheels… with so much to look forward to in 2020 we can’t wait to see what brand new cars get released this year!
