Man alive! When we first watched this video of a Competition Eliminator car running in Oslo, Norway, we rubbed our eyes and watched again. Sporting a 297ci Ford motor, a tach that starts at 6,000 rpm, and a driver that can really row the Liberty 5-speed, this Ford Probe is off the charts awesome. Hell, the guy takes the car to 10,000 rpm during the burnout!
We hunted around for some photos of the outside of the car and it seems like this was once a Motorcraft sponsored entry, judging from the paint scheme. Either that or the owner is a big Ford nut and decided to paint his car like one of the Motorcraft schemed machines in tribute. Who gives a crap about the paint anyway?
Listen to the all-out fury that this little motor screams all the way down the track. The clutch is dumped at 10,000 and the needle goes over center more than a little during the lap so we’re thinking that 11,000 rpm is being realized at the finish line when the shift light is hopelessly pleading for another gear.
BangShifting is international, this video rules.
