Best of 2020: Supercharged Rolls-Royce Meteor V-12 Out Of Zoomies

Oh, you’re a violent little thing, aint’cha? This one goes out to every 200-horsepower 350-powered hot rod that is around…we may never know for sure, but when the earliest hot rodders returned from WWII with a newfound respect for what horsepower could really be, this is probably what they had on the brain. This is monstrous. This Model A Ford cannot be ignored. By size, by scope, by sheer noise level that has to be biblical thanks to the straight-up dump pipes shooting up into the sky, this is an attention-grabber. It sounds like two pissed-off 250 Chevrolets that Brazillians have put the screws to crossed with a radial fighter jet and enough anger issues to sort out half of the Hell’s Angels.

27 liters. 1,649 cubic inches. Stock, they put out up to 65o horsepower…back in the Forties. Wearing a 16-71 supercharger on top, who knows what this thing is putting out. The only way this beast could be any cooler is if the owner fired it off, drove it to the skidpad at Summernats, and proceeded to show a bunch of guys beating up on old LS-powered Holdens what can be done when you have every last ounce of torque possible. Full chat with blower whine? Yeah, we can live with that soundtrack all day long…provided we get some earplugs, of course.
