There are certain things that transcend geography and culture and apparently one of those things is watching two huge trucks rip a car in half. Long a staple of monster truck exhibitions and other mud slinging fun-fests, we thought the whole deal was limited to us ugly Americans who revel in such carnage. As the video below proves, there’s gazillions of us across the globe that love this type of deal, even in Ireland.
The trucks in question are a pair of Macks. The one closest to the camera is a classic Superliner and it is a pretty neat looking rig. The drivers of these things take some time to get their rhythm down to get maximum pullage destruction going so we’re going to fast forward to the part where things start to get good, or things start to get really bad if you are the Peugeot that is getting pulled limb from limb.
It does not appear that the car has been modified or altered for this exhibition of brutal pulling power because the thing pulls apart in a very jagged and awesome fashion. There’s not a clean break here, this looks straight up violent. We dig the fact that the driver are not totally hammering their stuff, just using the trucks weight and the incredible available torque to get the job done.
