Tuning studio American Racing Headers published on its YouTube-channel video with a race dragster, built on the basis of the Toyota Prius. The car, equipped with the engine of the eight-cylinder Hellcat engine, made its debut last year at the SEMA show

The 6.2-liter Prius unit is equipped with a customized Whipple drive supercharger. The yield of the engine instead of the standard 717 forces is 811 horsepower. The box is a six-speed manual transmission Tremec. A distance of a quarter of a mile (402 meters) dragster passes in nine seconds. According to the creators, with minor improvements, time can be improved for a second.

True, from the usual Prius the car had only the body: together with the hybrid power plant, the car lost the chassis – a new one with a double frame was specially made for it.
